While a classic car show is indeed an exciting event, it also may have its share of hazards – hazards that can cause serious injuries and cast a shadow over the experience. Premises liability may become an issue if you’re injured on another party’s property due to a safety hazard.
Premise liability is the legal obligation of an owner or operator of a classic car show to take the necessary steps to prevent accidents or injuries on the show site. Any injuries sustained by attendees then may point toward safety oversights and legal liability for injuries.
If you slipped and fell or suffered other injuries in Reno, speak with a premises liability attorney about your legal options.
Potential dangers at classic car shows may result from slipping and/or falling, the transport of cars, unsafe display areas, overcrowding, a lack of signs, or obvious electrical dangers.
It’s up to a car show organizer to make sure that the ground or surface of an event property is safe and free of hazards. Uneven floors, slippery surfaces, or cluttered pedestrian walkways can present dangers that may lead to accidents. Therefore, it’s up to the car show operator to address any risks that could lead to a liability claim.
That means making sure the ground or floor has the necessary traction and is free of any flaws that could lead to a slip and fall. Also, it’s important to clean up spills or set up stanchions to control the flow of people who are viewing displays. Maintaining clean walkways and removing obstacles or debris is also important in cutting down on the chance of getting sued.
Organizers of classic car shows must make sure that the logistics and the placement of cars are done with reduced risk as well. However, they’re not the only party that can be sued if an attendee sustains injuries. The fault may lie, in some cases, with the classic car transport company.
The transporter of your classic car should be covered with adequate insurance protection so your auto is protected against damage to the paintwork or any abuse during the delivery. If any negligent handling of the car happened during shipment, which also led to an injury, you should consult with a personal injury lawyer about what steps you need to take to receive compensation.
A popular car show event attracts large crowds of people and, therefore, may exceed the venue’s capacity. This may cause problems in emergencies or restricted movement, leading to trip-and-fall injuries. Therefore, an event organizer needs to be vigilant about checking the crowd size and making the needed safety adjustments.
Lighting installations at classic car shows may present dangers such as exposed wiring, poorly functioning equipment, or improper display setups. These can cause electrical injuries, such as burns, cardiac injuries, and more.
To prove your premises liability claim, you’ll first need to show you were invited to the venue as a guest at the classic car event. You must also prove that the owner of the property was aware of certain safety issues but did not address them promptly or properly.
For example, you may want to see if the organizers of the show notified the owner of possible hazards.
