Casinos and the Potential for Injury
Las Vegas is a fabulous and exciting place to visit and each year, hundred of thousands of tourists and locals alike make their way down to the bright lights and bustling roar of the casinos both downtown and on the strip. The Casino floor can be an exciting place to be because of all of the lights, people and commotion, but that also makes them locations that seem to be prone to many accidents that may turn into injuries when those attractions double as distractions.
Given the amount of people that attend casinos on any given night, and the nature of casinos in general, it is no surprise that casino-goers are susceptible to a variety of accidents. One of the most common accidents that can lead to injuries within Las Vegas casinos are those known as slip-and-fall. Casino floors are full of drinks and distracted patrons. Something as little as a spill could mean a serious injury for another unlucky patron.
Other common casino injuries that occur are due to distracting conditions include:
- Running into others
- Falling down steps or tripping over unnoticeable steps
- Falling out of faulty chairs
- Slipping on liquids
- Equipment malfunctions
The risks don’t stop within the casino walls. According to some studies and polls, Nevadans were ranked as high as the 5th worst drivers in the nation in 2018. Many factors may go into this ranking, but among the reasons cited by these reports, “failure to obey,” “careless driving,” and “drunk driving” were listed as the among the top three reasons. This may come as little or no surprise to those who are familiar with Las Vegas, but that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t always be cautious of the risks and prepared to handle what comes after. We hope that nobody has to experience any of this, but if you find yourself in a situation where you have been injured through no fault of your own, contact a personal injury attorney to find out what steps you can take to ensure that all of your needs are met while you are injured or unable to work.
