Stewart J. Guss, Injury Accident Lawyer is now representing multiple victims of the Travis Scott Astroworld music festival tragedy. If you or a loved one got hurt at the Astroworld concert, call 832-263-8504 for a free consultation from our live experts.
On Friday, November 5th, 2021, Houston rapper Travis Scott’s third annual Astrowold festival kicked off at NRG stadium. The sold-out event had more than 50,000 young music fans in attendance.
Due to unsafe conditions, 8 lives were lost in the Astroworld crowd surge and hundreds more people were injured.
Law enforcement officials have now labeled the event a mass casualty incident.
Event organizers and performers owed a duty of care to those 50,000 concertgoers that night, but security and medical personnel were understaffed, undertrained, and unprepared for what took place.
These negligent parties can and should be held liable.
If you or someone you know was injured during this event, reach out now and we will do anything we can to help.
What Happened at Astroworld 2021?
As more disturbing Travis Scott concert photos and videos emerge on social media, the evidence is piling up.
Victims suffered the following injuries and issues during the Astroworld music festival:
- compression asphyxia
- cardiac arrest
- heat exhaustion
- broken bones
- internal injury and internal bleeding
- traumatic brain injuries
- bruises, cuts, and other trampling injuries
- and more
Additionally, many concert attendees are traumatized, mentally scarred for life by what they witnessed at this chaotic event.
After Travis Scott appeared onstage at about 9 P.M., panic steadily grew. Fans began to lose consciousness. Emergency vehicles cut through the crowd but were unable to reach those in need. As barriers buckled and people stumbled, a domino effect resulted in layers upon layers of individuals falling and being trampled. Heat from proximate pyrotechnics made it even more difficult to breathe.
Some performers and staff members blatantly ignored cries for help and chants of “stop the show.”
One deceased victim was 16 years of age, and others as young as 10 were hospitalized in critical conditions.
Our hearts go out to the affected families, and to the entire Houston community. Our Astroworld lawsuit attorneys are committed to fighting for justice and holding negligent parties accountable for this preventable tragedy.
