What Are Some Common Accidents that Occur at Radio City Music Hall?
Accidents at Radio City Music Hall occur due to the numerous flights of stairs, large crowds, tight spaces, and dim lighting. The most common types of accidents that occur at Radio City Music Hall include:
- Staircase accidents: Due to its large size and layout, Radio City Music Hall has many levels, floors and rows of seating. Most people access these by using the stairs. If these are poorly maintained, people may get injured.
- Slip and Fall or Trip and Fall Accidents (inside the arena): Visitors can easily get hurt in a slip and/or trip, and fall accident. The hall may have broken flooring, newly polished floors, wet bathrooms, raised carpets, or even spilled food or drink as there are many vendors who sell merchandise and food.
- Slip and Fall or Trip and Fall Accidents (outside the arena): Radio City Music Hall also has a duty to keep the outside of the hall free of dangerous conditions. If you ever stood on line to get in, with lines running for several blocks, you know that there can be ice accumulation on sidewalk abutting the hall, standing water near entrances and exits due to rainy or snowy weather, and broken sidewalks which could lead to slip and fall, and/or trip and fall accidents.
