November 5, 2021 will be a date that many people will not forget – including those who were injured, those who were witnesses and suffered mental and emotional trauma, and those who lost loved ones. The deadly incident at the Astroworld Festival brought light to the many dangers of large music festivals – especially those in which the performers are known to incite dangerous behavior.
At least ten people lost their lives as a result of the crowd surge that occurred as Travis Scott was on stage performing – these deaths occurred both on the festival grounds on the day of the incident and at local hospitals days and even weeks later. Hundreds of people suffered physical injuries. Countless others who witnessed the incident, had to walk by the injured and sometimes over the deceased, had to walk through bloody floors to get to safety, etc. suffered severe mental and emotional trauma that is likely to follow them for the rest of their lives.
If you or a member of your family suffered any sort of harm as a direct result of the incident that occurred at Astroworld Festival on the night of November 5, 2021, you could have grounds to take legal action. You might have already explored your legal options – you might have even already started the process of filing a lawsuit or participating in a class action lawsuit.

The value of your case will depend very specific details. When determining the value of a lawsuit, the injuries sustained in the incident are among the most important details. Typically, the more severe the injuries, the higher the value of the claim. Injuries that require surgery to treat, for example, generally increase the value of a case significantly – considering how expensive surgeries, follow-up care (like physical therapy), and medication can be. When injuries are involved, it is easy to put a monetary value on a case. Depending on the injuries suffered, cases involving only minor injuries can be worth up to $75,000. Cases involving more severe injuries can be worth around $500,000, and sometimes more.
Unlike with physical injuries, you cannot really put a monetary value on mental and emotional harm (also known as pain and suffering) that a victim suffers after witnessing a traumatic incident – like what happened at the Astroworld Festival. Regardless, affected parties could be eligible to recover monetary compensation. If you developed post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), you will likely have to go through months or even years of therapy. In some cases, a PTSD diagnosis might even require prescription drug treatment to manage symptoms. Depending on the severity of your specific situation (like how your PTSD affected you and is likely to affect you in the future), the value of your case can vary significantly.
Cases filed for injuries and even PTSD stemming from the Astroworld Festival incident can potentially settle for millions of dollars. Wrongful death claims, specifically, are likely to be among the high-value settlements. Injury claims surrounding severe injuries and even PTSD claims can be worth up to $750,000. True settlement amounts will differ from case to case and will vary significantly based on the specific case details.
How much can I get if I file a class action lawsuit? If you participate in a class action lawsuit, you could recover a significant payout. However, you must remember that the final settlement will be split between all members of the class action; considering that there were 50,000 people in attendance, some of which could have grounds to participate in a class action lawsuit, the settlement would have to be a multi-million dollar settlement to ensure that each class member receive a sizeable payout.
