In 2018 there were 42.12 million visitors to the city of Las Vegas. Unfortunately with so many visitors coming and going out of town, a proportionate number of visitors were injured as a result of negligence on casino properties.
There are many different types of injuries that can occur in casinos, the most common being slip and falls due to spilled liquids on the floors. It is common knowledge that many casino floors are cleaned and polished to a high-level shine to maintain the glamorous appearance of Las Vegas. Add a spilled drink on the floor and you’ve created a potential hazard for people to fall and get hurt.
If you are injured in a casino “slip and fall” accident, do the following:
1. Report the incident to hotel security;
2. Take photographs of what caused your fall (the Casino will quickly clean up the evidence if permitted);
3. Make sure you are seen by a medical professional soon after the incident;
4. Contact a lawyer.
