Country Star Luke Bryan’s Stage Collapses & Injures Crew
Crew members were rushed to the hospital Thursday night after Luke Bryan’s stage set collapsed after his Ohio concert.
A forklift crashed into the stage during takedown, causing it to collapse, according to local law enforcement officials.
Four people were taken to the hospital with injuries. Their current medical status is unknown.
Bryan’s next scheduled concert date in Kentucky has been postponed to February due to the incident.
FDBR has represented clients who have been injured by numerous construction site accidents, including the recent Florida Dade College parking garage collapse.
Construction sites can be dangerous and offer many risks to construction workers. Some of the hazards of a construction site include:
- Slips and falls
- Negligent site supervision
- Electrical accidents
- Injury from tools or other equipment
- Collapse of building materials, equipment, etc.
Similar accidents have occurred in the past. In 2011, during a Sugarland concert in Indiana, the weather caused the stage to collapse and killing seven fans.
