Levi’s’s Stadium, located in Santa Clarita, California, is a football stadium that’s been home to the San Francisco 49ers since 2014. The venue was named after the jeans company, which owns the naming rights, even though the city of Santa Clarita is the actual owner of the stadium. The seating capacity at Levi’s Stadium is 68,000, but it can be expanded to accommodate 75,000 people for major events like the Super Bowl and FIFA World Cup. Of course, with that many people in attendance, the potential for accidents is at an all-time high.

Common Accidents at Levi’s Stadium
When you are at Levi’s Stadium for a sports event or concert, there are many accidents that can cause you to be injured. Here are some examples:

- Concert accidents – mosh pit injuries, crushing and trampling injuries from overcrowding

What are my Rights if I was Injured at Levi’s Stadium?
A concert or sports game accident is an incredibly traumatic experience, and it’s hard to know where to turn in order recoup your losses. Most people are unaware of their rights and legal options and find themselves asking, “Can I sue Levi’s Stadium for my injuries?”
Your right to sue depends on the following elements:
As a legitimate guest or a worker at the stadium, you were owed a duty of care by the property owners.
The owners or their employees (acting on behalf of the owners) failed in their duty of care to you through an act of negligence.
As a result, you suffered an accident on the premises of Levi’s Stadium, which caused you bodily harm.
The injuries you sustained entitle you to monetary damages from the stadium owner.
These factors are based on California’s premises liability laws, which dictate a property owner’s duty to inspect and maintain their premises. This is very important in places like Levi’s Stadium, where the sheer volume of people at any one time increases the likelihood of an accident. In particular, proper security measures are essential to preventing incidents of assault and battery, including sexual assault. In these cases, however, liability may fall on a third party that’s working at Levi’s Stadium. This is common in situations where a stadium hires an outside company to handle certain duties for an event. Failure on the part of these companies can result in an accident, which would make them liable for the victim’s injuries.
Due to these, and many other complexities, it can be challenging to determine liability for an accident at Levi’s Stadium. Thus, it’s important to speak to a lawyer right away, who can help you take the right steps towards a settlement.

What is the Value of my Levi’s Stadium Accident Claim?
People often contact us to ask about the average case value for a concert or sports stadium accident. However, a personal injury settlement varies from client to client, depending on their injuries and how their life has changed as a result of their accident. Based on the cases we have handled, we would say that a Levi’s Stadium accident claim is worth around $150,000 to $1 million and above, though minor injury cases will settle for less. On the other hand, permanent, lifelong damage, such as paralysis and traumatic brain injury, may be worth several million dollars.
Statute of Limitations – How long do I have to Sue?
To ensure that your lawsuit is filed on time, you will need to know the statute of limitations for your case. For most injury claims, including slip and falls, trip and falls, and car accidents, the SOL is two years from the accident date or the date you discover an injury associated with the accident. However, the statute of limitations may be shorter depending on the circumstances of your accident, so please speak with one of our attorneys regarding the amount of time you have to pursue an injury claim. Keep in mind that the courts are very strict about the statute of limitations on civil lawsuits. If you do not file your lawsuit in time, you will most likely lose the right to demand compensation from Levi’s Stadium.

It takes time and effort to build a strong case and negotiate a settlement that meets your needs. However, it’s always our goal to settle your claim as soon as possible, which can be anywhere from 3 to 8 months.
