From the Super Bowl to Sochi, Americans Are On the Move; New Guide Provides Tips to Stay Safe in Crowds

Share Article

How do you stay safe in a large crowd? The Accident Attorneys Organization has developed a guide to help people assure their safety.

“Accidents can easily occur, groups can get separated, and crowds can become unruly when they get wrapped up in the excitement of the event.”

This is going to be an incredible year for Americans attending world-class sporting events, including the Super Bowl, the Olympic Games in Sochi, and the World Cup in Brazil. However, the recent bombings in Volgograd, Russia, and the resulting warnings from the U.S. State Department make it clear that people who attend such events must be vigilant to ensure their personal safety.

The Accident Attorneys Organization has compiled a brief downloadable guide that not only outlines steps that people can take to assure their safety, but also includes additional resources that are appropriate for specific destinations. The guide includes:

  •     A Crowd Safety Checklist
  •     Safety tips specific to the Super Bowl, Sochi and The World Cup
  •     Transportation suggestions for the events
  •     Medical advice for staying safe in crowds, especially abroad
  •     Tips for keeping children safe in crowds
  •     Links to online resources, including U.S. State Department threat levels and even contact information for U.S. embassies in Russia and Brazil

“Large crowds, by nature, can suddenly turn dangerous,” said Connecticut personal injury attorney Richard P. Hastings, a member of and the national spokesperson for The Accident Attorneys Organization. “Accidents can easily occur, groups can get separated, and crowds can become unruly when they get wrapped up in the excitement of the event.”

“Additionally, there is always the risk of medical emergencies, getting lost, sudden bad weather and sadly, intentional criminal conduct,” Hastings said.

But no one wants to say they decided not to attend the Super Bowl over worries that something bad might happen. Instead, attendees should plan ahead for their safety.

“Our Crowd Safety Guide will help people prepare wisely, enabling them to enjoy these once-in-a-lifetime events,” Hastings said.

The Accident Attorneys Organization is a nationwide network of highly-credentialed peer-reviewed accident and injury attorneys with a three-prong mission, that being to help injured people find exceptional injury lawyers in their area, inform the public about personal safety issues, and support worthy charities involving those who have suffered life-altering injury.
