Injury Claims Against Casinos

Filing a Personal Injury Claim Against a Casino

When a person is injured at a Las Vegas casino, he or she may have the right to sue for damages. A personal injury claim may be brought against any person or entity whose negligent or wrongful conduct caused a victim to be physically and/or emotionally injured, and casino accidents and injuries may fall under this category. There are many different types of specific incidents that may give an injured victim grounds to file a personal injury lawsuit against a casino or other responsible party. These may include, but are not limited to:

  • A slip and fall accident caused by a wet floor, poor lighting or other hazardous condition
  • An injury sustained on an escalator or in an elevator due to poor maintenance
  • Injuries from excessive force used by security personnel at the casino
  • Assaults or attacks on casino grounds when negligent security was a factor
  • Injuries in casino parking lots or anywhere on casino grounds
  • Swimming pool accidents at a casino’s hotel
  • Food poisoning at a casino restaurant

There are some important steps to take if you have been injured at a casino or hotel. Make sure you report the incident to casino personnel as quickly as possible. They will most likely ask you numerous questions. Answer these and be as detailed as possible, but make sure that you do not admit responsibility for the accident or your injuries and do not sign any statements without first consulting an attorney. Seek medical attention, and keep detailed records regarding this. Contact a Las Vegas personal injury lawyer as soon as you can to get legal advice and guidance regarding this important matter. Protecting your legal rights from the onset is crucial.
