What Can I Do if I’ve Been Injured at a Casino?

Casino Related Injury

Casinos are dynamic places. Many offer opportunities to dine, dance, and watch talented entertainers, in addition to gambling. Some are even attached to hotels so that guests may enjoy convenient accommodations after they’re done with their casino experience for the night. There are many benefits associated with such dynamic entertainment spots. However, the busy nature of casinos means that they also tend to be hot spots for trip and fall accidents, falling object accidents, and even physical assaults. If you’ve been injured while visiting a casino or working at a casino, you’re certainly not alone. Depending on your unique circumstances, you may be able to file legal action against the establishment and/or third parties to gain access to compensation for the harm you have suffered. 

Next Steps

Once you’ve been injured in a casino-related accident, it’s important to connect with an attorney as soon as you can. An experienced attorney will help to ensure that your rights are protected and that your legal options remain viable as you determine whether or not you want to take any kind of legal action. An attorney can also help you file any reports that need to be submitted to ensure that your accident has been documented properly. 

If you can, try to take pictures of the accident scene, even if it’s just an empty stairwell you tripped down. The lighting, any debris on the floor, etc. can prove to be useful in presenting your case. Also, if there were any witnesses to your accident, please try to obtain their contact information. Finally, as soon as you can, write down or videotape your recollection of what happened leading up the accident, during the accident, and in the wake of the accident. No detail is too insignificant to document. Over time, your memory will fade somewhat and it’s critical to have a first-hand account of what happened available in the event that you need to refresh your memory. This is particularly pressing business if you have suffered a head injury, as your memory of the incident may fade more quickly than it normally would.
