Teenager wins compensation after being trampled at music festival
Sophie, a 16-year-old girl, suffered an injury at a music festival in 2019. Whilst leaving one of the stages at the end of a set, Sophie and her friend were caught up in a crowd surge and crushed against a barrier. The barrier collapsed, and she was trampled. Sophie suffered bruising to her head and face, and extensive injuries to her leg, resulting in permanent cosmetic injury and pain.
Despite Sophie’s traumatic experience, the event organiser denied liability. However, Sophie's family were determined to fight for the justice and compensation that she deserved.
The journey to securing a settlement for Sophie was not easy. After being rejected by two law firms, her father reached out to Wolferstans Solicitors for help. Our team of personal injury specialists saw the merit in the case and worked tirelessly to uncover the truth and build a strong argument in Sophie's favour.
We conducted a thorough review of the organiser’s documents and were able to piece together the events leading up to the accident, which strengthened Sophie’s claim and held the event organiser accountable. Despite court proceedings being challenging, the team were able to reassure Sophie of the validity of her claim and in the end, their hard work paid off.
The event organiser offered a settlement that not only covered the cost of Sophie's medical treatment but also provided compensation for the pain and suffering she endured. The settlement offered by the event organiser reflected the expertise and dedication of our Personal Injury team.
