Hotel Injuries In Las Vegas

Discussing extent of injuries

Las Vegas is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the entire world. Indeed, according to data from the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Convention Authority (LVCVA) 42.9 million people visited the city in the year 2016 alone. This means that most Las Vegas casinos and hotels see a lot of traffic.

When people come to our city, we want them to have a good time, something that can only happen in safe conditions. It is the casino or hotel’s responsibility to ensure that its premise is safe for its guests. If there are any specific dangers like a wet floor after cleaning, the hotel or casino is required by law to post a warning about it. If the hotel fails to live up to this responsibility, and you or a loved one suffers an injury as a result, you can hold them legally liable for your damages.

At Ladah Law Firm, our Las Vegas personal injury attorneys have extensive experience handling all types of hotel injury claims. We have the skills and experience needed to help injured victims seek compensation for the full extent of their damages. These types of injury claims can be complicated, and victims should not try to handle them on their own. If you were severely injured in a Vegas hotel accident, please call us today at (702) 252-0055 for immediate legal assistance.

The Most Common Hotel Injuries and Accidents

Hotels may not seem like dangerous places; many of Las Vegas’s most popular hotels are bright, sunny and appear to be well-maintained. Yet like any business establishment, hotels and motels can quickly turn dangerous if proper safety precautions are not taken. In fact, many different types of accidents happen at Vegas hotel properties every year. The accidents can lead to injuries that vary considerably, both in their kind and in their severity. Some of the most common examples include:

    • Slip and fall accidents: Hotels have a legal duty to protect guests against common slip and fall hazards. This duty includes everything from quickly cleaning up spills, to marking wet floors so that guests are aware of dangerous conditions. Slip and fall accidents can lead to very severe injuries, so hotels must take this responsibility seriously.

 

    Swimming pool accident case
  • Swimming pool injuries: Many Las Vegas hotels have some type of pool. It may be an indoor pool, an outdoor pool, hot tub, or all of the above. While pools are certainly a nice feature, guests should know that hotel swimming pool injuries, remain unfortunately common. Hotels must take proactive measures to keep their pools and the surrounding area safe.
  • Hotel gym accidents: Hotel gym equipment is another leading cause of injuries. If an injury occurs at a hotel gym because the equipment was negligently maintained, the hotel can be held liable for the damages.
  • Food poisoning: If you were served tainted food at a hotel restaurant, you may have a food poisoning claim. Hotel food operations, like all other Clark County restaurants, have a legal obligation to ensure that they are serving safe food. Other injuries, including burns, also sometimes take place at hotel restaurants.
  • Negligent security: Hotel properties have a duty to provide guests with reasonably secure conditions. This means that hotels may sometimes be held liable for third party attacks that happen on their property. If a hotel has inadequate security, either because of lack of personnel, under-trained security staff, poor screening measures or defective locks, they may be liable for any related damages.

 

When Can a Hotel Be Held Liable for an Accident?

To hold a Nevada hotel property responsible for your injuries, you will need to prove that its negligence contributed in some way to your accident. In other words, the hotel must have done something wrong (either through its actions or inactions) and your injuries must have occurred, at least partially, as a result of that wrongful act. What actually constitutes negligence can vary depending on the specific circumstances of the case in question.

For example, sometimes, the hotel or casino may be negligent about danger signs. When guests step on these hazards, they may be seriously injured. If a guest is injured in a slip and fall accident, because the hotel failed to mark a freshly mopped linoleum floor, then the hotel could be liable for that accident. The hotel had a duty to mark the dangerously slippery floor, they failed to do so, and an injury happened as a result. All of the required elements of a negligence-based personal injury claim would be met.

Ultimately, if you were injured in any type of accident that occurred at a hotel property, you should speak to a qualified Las Vegas personal injury attorney immediately. Your attorney will be able to review the details of your case and help you assess your legal options.

You Deserve Full Compensation For Your Injuries And Losses

Once you prove that the hotel was liable for your accident, then your Vegas personal injury claim will move onto the issue of damages. Under Nevada law, victims are entitled to recover compensation for the full value of their losses. However, unfortunately, full and fair compensation is frequently difficult to obtain.

Following a serious accident, the casino or hotel may try to hush the matter up with small compensations and other incentives. They may even try to comp you part of your room fee, give you some casino chips or offer you a free dinner to make your case go away. This can be a distraction. Do not settle your case for any less than you deserve. You may need to bring legal action to recover the compensation you are owed. We will help you seek financial relief for all of your damages, including:

  • Any emergency room or ambulance fees;
  • Other medical bills;
  • Long-term treatment with medical specialists;
  • Any required medication and medical equipment;
  • Lost current and futures wages;
  • Pain and suffering;
  • Mental anguish; and
  • Severe physical trauma, including loss of limb, disfigurement or permanent disability.
