Parades are joyous occasions filled with vibrant floats, lively music, and enthusiastic crowds. However, accidents can happen, and injuries at parades are not uncommon. Understanding the common causes of parade injuries and knowing your rights can help you navigate these unfortunate situations. At Fielding Law, we are here to support you with empathy and expertise.

Common Parade Injuries

Parade injuries can occur in various ways. Some of the most common include:

Trampling and Crowd Surges: Large crowds can sometimes become uncontrollable, leading to trampling and serious injuries.

Float Accidents: Accidents involving parade floats can result in severe injuries due to their size and weight.

Thrown Objects: Items thrown from floats or performers can accidentally hit spectators, causing injuries.

Slip and Falls: Spills, uneven surfaces, or debris can lead to slip and fall accidents during parades.

Steps to Take If Injured

If you are injured at a parade, follow these steps to protect your rights and ensure you receive proper care:

  1. Seek Medical Attention: Your health is the priority, so get medical help immediately.
  2. Report the Incident: Notify parade organizers or local authorities about the injury right away.
  3. Document Everything: Take photos, gather witness information, and keep records of medical treatments.
  4. Consult a Personal Injury Attorney: Contact a legal expert to understand your rights and options fully.

Who Can Be Held Liable?

Determining liability in parade injuries can be complex. Potentially liable parties include:

Parade Organizers: They are responsible for ensuring the event’s safety and may be liable for any negligence.

Float Operators: If an accident occurs due to float operation, the operator or organization behind the float may be held accountable.

Municipal Authorities: Local governments may share liability if they fail to provide adequate crowd control or safety measures.

Performers and Participants: Individuals or groups participating in the parade can be liable if their actions directly cause injuries.
