Common Areas for Casino Accidents 

A casino may be liable for injuries sustained during an accident that occurs on the casino's premises. To establish liability, an injured party must show that the casino was negligent by breaching a duty owed to you as a customer to provide a safe environment to visit. 

One of the most common locations for a slip, trip, or fall is the gambling area. Several chairs, tables, and other objects are typically scattered about that can cause individuals to trip and fall. Having objects in an area of travel does not necessarily create liability. However, a casino may be liable for an accident if it knew or should have known of an unreasonably dangerous condition existing on their premises. Other typical areas of accidents can include:

  • Restaurants that exceed maximum capacity
  • Parking lots that are not well-lit and pose a security threat
  • Hotel rooms that are not secure
  • Shuttle buses that are not well-maintained

Document Your Casino Injury

After an accident, it is important to notify casino personnel to document your injury. Also, examine the area in which the incident happened. For example, try to determine the cause of your slip, trip, or fall, noting any foreign objects or substances that may have caused the accident. Make sure you obtain a copy of any report of the incident before leaving, if possible.

After notifying casino personnel, promptly seek medical attention to determine the extent of your injuries. In many slip, trip, or fall cases, individuals do not know the warning signs of an injury. They often seek medical attention days or weeks later when that ache or pain does not seem to go away. This could be detrimental to your personal injury case. Seeking prompt medical attention will help ensure that you do not further contribute to your injuries.
