When you visit a casino, it’s the owner’s responsibility to ensure the conditions of the establishment are safe. This means equipment, employees, and the overall premises of the casino are kept in proper order. When an injury happens on casino property and it’s evident that these standards weren’t upheld, you are due to receive financial compensation for your pain and suffering Compensation for physical damages is just the beginning. Casino negligence means you can also be compensated for medical bills and lost income.
Injuries caused by casino negligence can vary and usually include the following circumstances:
Slip and Fall Accidents
While slip and falls are common personal injuries, they are very common with casino negligence. Slip and falls usually involve neglected carpet, damaged equipment, uneven payment, and slippery floors. If you’ve endured injury due to a slip and fall accident at a casino, you could receive monetary damages.
Part of the casino owner’s obligation involves making sure casino patrons are safe while they’re inside. It’s a common belief that security guards are always on alert and security cameras are always watching. Sometimes, guards feel underpaid or haven’t received efficient training. Other times, cameras are outdated and need to be replaced. As a result, measures aren’t effectively put into place and they fail to meet basic requirements in protecting their visitors. When guards and cameras don’t align with code and you suffer an injury as a result, the casino is liable. If the behavior or lack of protection caused an injury while at a casino, give me a call.
