Woman sues Drake, claiming traumatic brain injury

Some Georgia fans of the musician Drake might have heard that he is facing a lawsuit in relation to an injury that occurred at one of his shows in 2016. The 24-year-old New York woman who filed it has also named Madison Square Gardens, an employee and Live Nation in the lawsuit.

According to news reports, on Aug. 8, 2016, the woman attended a show at Madison Square Gardens and was hit with a beer bottle. As a result, she says she suffered seizures and a traumatic brain injury. The lawsuit says it prevented her medical school attendance and that the attack was unprovoked.

The lawsuit also says that Madison Square Gardens, Live Nation and Drake are responsible for the fact that too much alcohol was served while the venue was overcrowded. Furthermore, it states that the alcohol should have been served in plastic cups instead of glass bottles and that there was inadequate security. The lawsuit alleges that aggressive behavior was not well-controlled at the event even though there has been violence in the past at Drake concerts. The woman's attorney says that bottles should not have been allowed in the building and that the woman's brain injury has affected her future.

Premises liability is based in the idea that an owner or others who are responsible for a piece of property are also responsible for the safety of guests on that property. Property owners and other responsible parties are supposed to take reasonable precautions to keep premises safe. One challenge that can arise for a person seeking compensation is connecting the injury to an incident on the property. While in some cases there is a clear connection, some people may have trouble proving a traumatic brain injury because there can be a lag between the injury and when symptoms appear. An attorney may provide assistance in settlement negotiations or take the case to court.
