Stadium Accidents in Pennsylvania
Call Our Legendary Philadelphia Premises Liability Lawyers
Millions of Americans visit stadiums, sports areas, ballparks, and other large venues. More often than not, these outings involve crowds of thousands, all traveling along concrete walkways, depending on sturdy railing, non-slippery stairways, and safe food to keep their evening injury-free. Property managers and venue owners are obligated to make sure their premises are safe for visitors and workers alike. When they fail in this duty, people can be injured catastrophically and even suffer fatal injuries.

Exceptions to "Assumption of Risk"
Venue owners are well aware that events in their stadiums are potentially dangerous. That's why, if you still have your ticket, you may see a warning absolving the venue or its owners of responsibility for any injuries or accidents you experience. As a result, many visitors to the stadium fall under a legal doctrine known as "assumption of risk," where attendees are assumed to be aware of the dangers of entering the stadium.
However, there are exceptions to this legal doctrine, as a facility is still responsible for meeting basic safety standards. For example, unmarked wet or slippery surfaces on major walkways or stairs can lead to traumatic brain injuries, fractured bones, spinal cord injuries, and paralysis. Because it is the venue's responsibility to warn spectators of slippery areas (or prevent them in the first place), this would entitle any injured people to hold the stadium responsible.
Other events that would not fall under "assumption of risk" include:
- Lack of security (leading to assault)
- Poor lighting
- Injuries from flying objects
- Food poisoning
- Falls from elevated walkways
- Guardrail failure
- Escalator accidents
- Sexual assault on the premises
- Dram shop liability for drunk driving injuries
All of these events could potentially cause long-term physical and psychological harm, requiring years of medical care, thousands in medical costs, and tens of thousands in lost wages and earning potential. That's why calling a Philadelphia premises liability attorney at The Beasley Firm is so vital. If you're entitled to compensation, you should hold venue owners accountable for the harm their negligence caused you.
