Over the last couple of weeks, more unfortunate details have been released in the Astroworld catastrophe. Our law firm has summarized everything you need to know so far regarding the case from liability issues to how the case will proceed forward.
1.) Astroworld was considered a “sold out” show at 50,000 people. When Travis Scott took the stage, there was an estimate of more than 55,000 people in NRG park. The park was overcapacity.
2.) At the time that the park was estimated to be overcapacity with more than 55,000 people, security had only scanned 34,000 tickets. This resulted in the inability to account for more than 20,000 people in the park that had clearly entered bypassing security. Security was overwhelmed and not prepared.
3.) The rapper Travis Scott continued to play for more than 30 minutes after the police declared the event a mass casualty. According to Houston Fire Chief Samuel Peña, they declared it a “mass casualty” at 9:38 p.m., yet Scott continued to perform until 10:15 p.m. How in the world was Travis Scott allowed to continue?
4.) The lawsuits that are being filed in this case are considered Mass tort claims. Mass Tort claims arise when a large group of people all suffer harm as a result of another’s action and suffer a wide range of injuries from severe injuries and death to PTSD. Marin and Barrett, Inc. is representing dozens of clients at the event who have suffered a wide range of injuries from emotional trauma to serious physical injuries.
