What Are Dance Clubs?
Dance clubs are business establishments that allow patrons to dance and socialize, usually at night time. These types of clubs are often restricted by age (such as no persons under 21 years old allowed). Sometimes the clubs allow persons above the age of 18, in which case under-aged drinking becomes a concern. Many dance clubs are subject to city ordinances regarding the hours of operation and closing times.
What Are Some Common Dance Club Injuries?
Dance clubs are associated with some very specific types of personal injuries. These include:
- Slip and fall cases (due to slippery dance floors)
- Alcohol-related injuries
- Dangerous structures causing injuries
- Injuries resulting from fights or assaults
- Injuries resulting from run-ins with bouncers or other security personnel
- Injuries resulting from overcrowding, overheating, and exhaustion
Thus, dance club owners can sometimes face various claims regarding injuries sustained at their business establishment.
Are There Any Legal Remedies for Dance Club Injuries?
In most cases, dance club injury lawsuits will be based on a premises liability theory, especially for claims involving slip and fall injuries or dangerous structures. In such cases, the plaintiff may need to prove that the dance club establishment knew about a dangerous condition but failed to resolve the dangerous condition. Remedies may include a damages award to pay for costs associated with the injury, such as hospital bills or medical treatment.
For other types of cases, similar damages awards may be issued. Liability may also depend on the parties involved (for instance, another patron may be liable if the injuries resulted from an assault or battery).
Should I Hire a Lawyer for Help with Dance Club Injuries?
Dance club injuries may often lead to some very specific types of lawsuits. You may wish to hire a lawyer if you need help with filing a claim or a lawsuit for your injuries. Your attorney can provide you with legal assistance and representation on the matters, and can determine whether you are entitled to any specific types of legal remedies.
