Six Dead in Sugarland Concert Stage Collapse
The lawsuit was filed in Indiana state court against the event organizers, alleging organizers "did not reasonably exercise due care in the design, set-up, configuration, layout and construction of the concert stage area." The complaint also states that the concert stage was overloaded with equipment, inappropriately configured and failed to meet safety guidelines, including those required by Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
Besides the deaths, some concert goers were seriously injured. One person suffered a crushed leg and shoulder, and lost several of her toes. To learn more about what to do when you or a loved one gets seriously injured, check out our online library devoted to the subject.
