Pursuing an accident injury claim against a Las Vegas casino
You may not realize the extent of your injuries at first, but remaining calm can be your best asset in these situations. The most common type of Las Vegas casino injury is a slip and fall. To pursue a case for compensation, there are a few questions that must be answered. These include:
- Was the casino on notice of the condition causing the slip and fall?
- Did a casino employee create the slip and fall condition therein putting the casino on actual notice of the condition?
- Did the condition exist for such a length of time that the casino had constructive notice of the condition; i.e., could the casino have discovered the slip and fall condition had the reasonably inspected?
- Was the hotel or casino floor surface unreasonably slippery. Flooring in hotel bathrooms is often made of unreasonably slippery materials when it is understood that the floor will be wet on occasion because of its location?
Answering these questions may be difficult over time, which is why you need to be observant and write down every detail possible as soon as possible. If your injuries are serious, you need to seek immediate medical attention. Not only does this help you get the treatment your injuries require, it creates documentation that could assist you in your personal injury claim.
Your next step is speaking with an experienced personal injury attorney. As with medical treatment, the sooner you speak with an attorney the better your chances are for receiving compensation to cover all of your medical bills and other damages.
