In Las Vegas, casinos are massive properties full of people, retail shops, restaurants, bars, and entertainment venues. With a property so large, it’s almost inevitable that the occasional slip and fall injury at a Las Vegas casino will occur. In these cases, the injury is almost always the result of negligence on behalf of the property leading to a premises liability claim being filed. Premises liability is when the property owners or managers are responsible for an injury due to their inability to provide visitors with a safe environment. Sometimes this could be caused by something as small as forgetting to place a “Caution: Wet” sign after mopping and other times it could be much more serious such as neglecting to address an obvious slipping or tripping hazard even after numerous complaints.
Regardless of the cause, the result is often the same one: a patron slips, trips, and injures themselves.
So what should you do if you ever find yourself in a position where you’ve been injured at a casino property in Las Vegas?
The first thing that you should do after an injury is to seek attention to any injuries you may have suffered. Slip and fall injuries are especially dangerous because they can lead to hip or head injuries that can cause serious injury. Always look out for your health to ensure that you do not walk away with an injury that you are unaware of.
Once you have sought out medical attention for any injuries that you have suffered, you want to make sure that you document as much as you can right at that moment. Collecting evidence of the incident immediately is important because you want to leave no room for the defendants to tamper with the evidence or call your memory into question by recording the events later on. The best method of collecting evidence will always be a photo, video, and witness testimony. If possible, ask anyone who may have witnessed the slip and fall incident and collect their contact information and ask if they would be comfortable providing their recount of the events.
In addition to collecting evidence on your own, you want to make sure that you report the incident to management immediately. Reporting the injury to management will ensure that management makes a written record or incident report which can be referred back to when filing your premises liability case.
