A student has made a successful compensation claim after being injured in a nightclub event. The Newcastle University student was injured at the “Grab a Grand” event.

The event involved £1,000 in cash being thrown onto the dancefloor. As people rushed forward to get the money, they created a stampede. The student had been standing near where the money had been thrown and was crushed in the melee. He sustained some physical injuries as well as psychological trauma due to the frightening experience.

He decided to seek compensation. However, this had its complications as the event promoter, the nightclub, and the advertiser were all trying to pin the blame on each other. The nightclub argued that it was not aware of the event and therefore not responsible. To make matters worse, the promoter and advertiser had both gone into liquidation shortly after the event. Despite this, the student managed to get £2,000 in compensation after suing the nightclub. He was reportedly pleased with this compensation settlement.
