Have You Been Injured in the Greensboro Cultural Center?

Greensboro skyline

A premier performance and arts space in Greensboro, the Greensboro Cultural Center is a cultural hotspot for those living in or visiting the area. But a performance, summer camp, or artist’s workshop experience could quickly go sour if you or a family member is injured. And when an accident was preventable, the results can seem even more devastating. What happens when your injury is due to the conditions of the premises? Who is liable?

The Greensboro Cultural Center, located in downtown Greensboro, offers space to City Arts and a number of non-profit organizations:

  • African American Atelier
  • ArtsGreensboro
  • Greensboro Community Television
  • Community Theatre of Greensboro
  • Greensboro Ballet
  • Greensboro Opera

For members of the public attending a performance, class or other event, a fall, equipment failure, or defective set structures could easily result in an injury. If you are injured, it may not be clear who is responsible. Consider the following possibilities:

  • If you or your child is injured during a dance camp due to circumstances out of your control, it is important to consider all potentially liable parties. This might include the organization that staged the workshop as well as the City that owns the space.
  • During a performance that you attend, a piece of equipment falls unexpectedly and injures you. The accident may be due to faulty site construction or maintenance, so again, the City may be one of multiple liable parties.
  • Your child is hanging off a walkway with others during horseplay. She slips and dislocates her shoulder. Unless you can demonstrate otherwise, your daughter contributed to her own injury, and compensation from other parties may not be forthcoming, as they would not be liable.

A claim for personal injury against an organization — or the City — depends on finding and proving that you or your loved one was owed a duty of care, that the duty was breached when one or more parties was negligent by creating or failing to prevent the conditions that led to the accident, and that your injury resulted.

City officials and departments are generally immune from prosecution for personal injury unless there is convincing evidence of negligence on the part of those in control of an event or a property.

If you have questions about an injury suffered on premises owned or operated by the City of Greensboro or another organization or business, the Lanier Law Group, P.A. can help. Call us toll free at 855-234-7619 or contact us today to set up a free consultation.
