Casino Accidents and Injuries
Whether you are a tourist, visiting Las Vegas for the weekend, or are a Las Vegas resident, when you visit a casino on or off the Las Vegas Strip you expect to be treated with respect and to have a good time. Under Nevada premise liability law, casino owners and operators have a responsibility to not only make sure their guests have a good time, but also to make sure they are safe while on the premise.
If something goes wrong at a casino and someone is injured, the casino can be held liable if it failed to keep the property in a reasonably safe condition or if it knew about or should have known about a potential hazard but failed to fix it.
Examples of situations that could lead to casino injuries include:
- Wet or slippery floors that are not marked
- A spilled drink that is not cleaned up in a timely fashion
- Frayed or torn carpet that could cause someone to trip and fall
- Stairways with poorly attached handrails or loose steps
- Escalators that pose a risk for clothing or show laces to get caught
- Elevators that stop short of the floor level causing a person exiting to trip and fall
- Casino chairs that are old and put a person at risk of falling due to a broken leg
Casinos are busy places, bustling with action. Casino owners and managers have a responsibility to make sure their patrons are safe. If someone is injured because the casino manager fails to maintain the casino or fails to warn patrons of wet surfaces and floors, he or she can be held accountable.
