Las Vegas is known all over the world for its casinos. Each year, billions of dollars are wagered at casino properties in Vegas and throughout Southern Nevada. Whether it is on the Strip, in Downtown Vegas or anywhere else in Clark County, casino patrons are looking for a good time, a safe experience, and hopefully, some good luck.
While casino owners and operators are certainly not obligated to provide you with a winning time, they do have a legal duty to provide reasonably safe conditions to their patrons and to any members of the public who are coming onto their property. Not only must they warn of potentially dangerous conditions such as those that exist when upgrades are being made to the casino, but they must also take reasonable action to prevent injuries.
When Las Vegas casinos fail to live up to their obligations to provide safe conditions, patrons can suffer very serious injuries. At Ladah Law Firm, our dedicated personal injury team is proud to fight for the rights and interests of casino injury victims. We work aggressively to help victims recover every dollar that they rightfully deserve. If you have been injured at a casino, call (702) 252-0055 today for a free initial consultation with Las Vegas Attorney Ramzy Ladah.
When casino owners fail to take necessary safety precautions, whether purposefully to cut costs or simple carelessness, serious injuries such as broken bones, paralysis or brain injury, or even death may occur as a result. These injuries can have a wide variety of underlying causes, as there are many potential dangers at casinos. Some of the most common reasons that accidents occur in Vegas casinos include:
Broken or unsafe gambling machines: Vegas casinos are loaded with gambling machines and equipment. Some of these machines are quite large, and they have the potential to cause serious injuries should something go wrong. Casino operators must always ensure that their gambling floor is properly designed and maintained, so that customers can play in safety.
Victims deserve financial compensation that is equal in value to the value of their damages. To obtain this recovery, injured victims be able to prove their damages with evidence. Under Nevada law, you have a right to recover for both monetary losses as well as intangible losses. At Ladah Law Firm, our personal injury attorneys can help you seek compensation for:
All medical bills, including emergency expenses;
Required physical or psychological therapy;
Lost income, including diminished earning capacity;
Pain and suffering;
Loss of life enjoyment.
Legally, commercial premises such as casinos are required to hold large liability insurance policies under which individuals injured on their property may recover compensation. In most cases, several such policies exist, providing ample opportunity for a full and fair recovery. However, this does not mean that full and fair recovery is easy; quite the contrary. Unfortunately, insurance companies will work hard to try to limit a victim’s recovery, sometimes even outright denying valid claims. If you were injured in a casino accident, you need to be ready to take on the big insurance companies. To do this, it is best to always deal with insurance company representatives through your Las Vegas premises liability attorney. Your attorney will be able to determine precisely what needs to be done in your case, in order to best protect your rights and interests.
