What Will a Las Vegas Hotel and Casino Injury Attorney Do to Help?

Determining the liability of a casino or hotel owner or operator after an injury can be difficult, and the legal challenges are often complex. An attorney can:

  • Obtain all evidence needed to prove liability, including a photo or video surveillance, statements from eyewitnesses, accident reports, and more.
  • Work with trusted medical professionals to ensure their client’s well-being and to help calculate total expenses.
  • Handle negotiations with all parties involved to reach a fair settlement amount for the client.

How Do Hotel and Casino Injuries Occur?

The owners and operators of hotels and casinos in Las Vegas have a responsibility to ensure the safety of their guests. When they fail to meet this responsibility, they could be held liable for any injuries a patron suffers. There are various ways that people can sustain an injury inside of a hotel or casino.

What Kind of Compensation is Available?

Individuals who sustain injuries at a hotel or casino may be able to recover various types of compensation for their losses. If the hotel or casino owner-operator was careless or negligent, the team at DiMarco | Araujo | Montevideo wants to help recover both economic and non-economic damages on behalf of clients.

  • Economic damages. After a hotel or casino injury, economic damages will revolve around calculable expenses the victim incurs as a result of the incident. By gathering receipts, bills, and estimates, a victim and their attorney can help calculate the following:
    • Emergency medical bills
    • Any ongoing or follow-up medical visits
    • Rehabilitation or physical therapy costs
    • Prescription medications or medical devices
    • Lost wages if a victim cannot work
    • Household out-of-pocket expenses
    • Property damage expenses
  • Non-economic damages. These types of damages will differ from the calculable economic losses just listed. After a hotel or casino accident, victims may sustain various types of less directly calculable losses, but losses that are nonetheless just as important. Non-economic damages include compensation for a victim’s:
    • Physical pain and suffering
    • Emotional and psychological distress
    • Loss of enjoyment of life

How Much Compensation is Available?

There is no set amount of compensation paid to hotel or casino accident victims in Las Vegas. Rather, each claim must be evaluated in its own right, and there are several factors that can influence total compensation amounts. If a claim is successful, some of the factors examined will include:

  • The severity of the injury
  • How long it takes a person to recover
  • Whether or not there is any disability
  • Whether an individual can work or not
  • Shared fault allegations
  • Insurance carrier policy limitations

Who Could Be Held Liable for a Hotel or Casino Injury?

There may be a range of parties who could be held liable for an injury that occurs at a Las Vegas casino or hotel. In fact, there may be situations where more than one party could hold liability for the same incident, meaning you may have to file claims against multiple individuals, entities, or businesses. Some of the possibilities for liability include:

  • Hotel and Casino Owners. They are primarily responsible for ensuring the safety and security of their premises. If negligence in maintaining a safe environment leads to an injury, the property owner could be held liable.
  • Management Companies. These entities are often tasked with the day-to-day operations of hotels and casinos. Their failure to implement proper safety protocols or respond to hazards can result in their liability.
  • Employees and Staff. Actions or negligence by employees, such as failing to clean spills or improperly handling equipment, can lead to guest injuries, making them potentially liable parties.
  • Security Personnel. Inadequate security measures or negligence by security staff can result in injuries from assaults or thefts, for which the hotel or casino could be held responsible.
  • Maintenance Crews. Failure to properly maintain the property, leading to issues such as elevator accidents or electrical hazards, can result in liability for the crew or their employer.
  • Third-party Vendors and Contractors. Hotels and casinos often hire outside companies for services like construction, entertainment, and cleaning. If negligence by these third parties causes an injury, they could also be liable.
  • Product Manufacturers. Defective products, such as malfunctioning slot machines or unsafe furniture in hotel rooms, could lead to injuries. The manufacturers of these products might be held responsible.
  • Food and Beverage Providers. If a guest suffers from food poisoning or an injury related to the consumption of food and beverages on the premises, the provider could be liable. 

Steps You Can Take After a Hotel or Casino Injury Occurs

After an injury occurs at a hotel or casino in Las Vegas, there are various steps that individuals can take to help ensure the integrity of their claim. Unfortunately, the alleged negligent parties will make these cases challenging, but the steps that you take matter. They can make a difference.

  1. Obtaining Medical Care. One of the most important aspects of any injury is seeking medical care as soon as possible. Prompt medical care helps individuals receive the care that they need right away and also establishes a strong link between the hotel or casino incident and any injuries that arise.
  2. Reporting the Injury. The injury incident must be reported to the proper supervisor at the hotel or casino. Make sure an employee knows, but also request that a manager is present. Every hotel or casino should have injury reporting procedures. This helps provide documentation and gives the hotel or casino notice of the injury.
  3. Collecting Evidence. It may be possible to gather some evidence at the scene of the incident, including using a phone to take photographs of the cause of the injury, the injury itself, and the surrounding area. If there were any eyewitnesses, it is important to get their names and contact information written down so they can give statements later.
  4. Seeking Legal Help. A hotel or casino accident attorney in Las Vegas will be a valuable advocate as you work towards recovering compensation. These can be complex challenges, but an attorney with experience handling premises liability claims can help you throughout the process.

Time Limit for Filing an Injury Claim in Las Vegas

Time Limit for Filing a Hotel or Casino Injury Claim in Las Vegas

Injury victims in Las Vegas must be aware of the Nevada personal injury statute of limitations. This law states that injury claims must be filed against the allegedly negligent party within two years, and failure to do so will likely lead to the case getting dismissed. If this happens, the injury victim will not be able to recover compensation for their losses.

Two years may seem like quite a while, but the reality is that these claims need to be filed as promptly as possible. Certainly, if it can be helped, the claim should be filed long before the two-year time frame expires. We encourage you to work with an attorney who can help you understand the importance of filing deadlines, including those related to filing insurance claims.
