Much of the world has caught it: World Cup fever. Hundreds of thousands of soccer-crazy tourists are flooding to South America to watch their respective country’s team duke it out on the grandest stage. They play for prestige, for national pride, and a chance to wear the most sacred of soccer crowns for the next four years; to be crowned World Cup champions. The heightened stage of excitement, brought about via the enormous size of the crowds, adds an electric feel to the games being played. But there is, too, a heightened fear of accident that comes corollary with all large crowds. Fierce rivalries and devout loyalties breed, sometimes, dissension. And the exuberance of such mammoth amounts of people, celebrating and spectating at once, makes for an untamable, unpredictable beast.
Whether it be abroad or on a domestic level, these gargantuan stadiums are home to many possible dangers. Be it soccer, baseball, football or otherwise, the designers of these stadiums have a responsibility to the fans. They must be assiduous in their safety planning, removing all preventable hazards.
Which means that if you’ve been injured, it may be within your rights to sue stadium owners for compensation. Have you been hurt in any of the following scenarios?
-Slipped on wet ground? Or any other slick or uneven surfaces?
-Suffered an injury due to inadequate safety personnel having been on hand?
-Fallen over an improperly constructed or maintained railing?
-Hit by projectile or game ball due to a malfunction in nets or other safety equipment?
-Suffered from heatstroke due to insufficient shading or an inaccessibility to water?
-Contracted food poisoning from improperly cooked food?
