Safety Concerns in Light of the Tragic Indiana State Fair Collapse

Posted on Aug 18, 2011

With the recent tragedy of the Indiana State Fair stage collapse, new safety concerns are raised about attending concerts. After the 4 incidents that have happened at concerts since July, it is not out of the question you could be injured at this type of event. An Indianapolis personal injury attorney can help you fight for the compensation you are entitled after a serious accident.

Just before Sugarland was to take stage, 70 mile per hour winds came through and caused the stage to come crashing down on concertgoers. Dozens were injured and 5 people died as a result.

Temporary structures are not mandated by law to be inspected. According to theIndystar, a spokesman for the fair, Andy Klotz, stated he didn’t know if the stage had been inspected.
 The state Department of Homeland Security indicated that they hadn’t inspected it.

Now Indiana’s governor is in favor of mandating “limited” stage inspections.
 The lack of inspections certainly raises concerns for individuals who choose to attend events like these.

If you are injured at a concert or other type of public event, then you may be entitled to receive compensation. An Indianapolis personal injury attorney can determine if you should proceed with filing a claim.
