-Main theme/purpose

To understand the importance of crowd management and to identify the ramifications associated with inadequate crowd management and crowd control. Event coordinators assume liability if an event turns into a chaotic episode for whatever reason. For example, a fight breaks out at a nightclub, someone pulls out a gun and starts shooting. An innocent bystander falls as a result of the commotion and gets trampled on and killed instantly. If there is inadequate crowd management, more than likely the club will be fined or shut down. In essence, this study's main objective is to examine inadequate crowd management, review legal documentation about the positive/negative impact of crowd management, identify who may be liable for any damages i.e. bodily harm, and damage to possessions, etc., and to make recommendations on how to enhance crowd management procedures to minimize adverse effects of the loss of control of a crowd.

Each case was utilized as a form of a benchmarking analysis to determine what legal precedence considers the assumption of risk of attending an event and if management should be held accountable due to negligence of safety procedures, liability in the event an individual is harmed or property is damaged. These cases illustrate who was at fault, some cases were in favor of the defendant and others were in favor of the plaintiff which presents a slippery slope in most cases for the reason that the plaintiff would have a responsibility of foreseeing any possible damage and act accordingly to prevent a dangerous situation from occurring. The cases outlined in this article includes the following:
