Safety is a priority for most casinos. Yet, there are times when a lack of training or a lapse in procedure leads to an injury. Here are some typical injuries that occur in casinos:
- slip and falls
- trip hazards
- broken chair injury
- elevator or escalator injury
- shuttle bus injury
- parking lot injury
- assault from thieves
There can be many ways a casino can be negligent that result in an injury. Here are some examples of casino injuries from negligence:
Spills on Floor
The most common form of negligence is slip and trip hazards. Wet floors cause slip and fall injuries. Trip hazards like loose or uneven flooring cause people to fall. Slip and falls attribute for major injuries in casinos that can result in broken bones, concussions, and even paralysis.
Poorly Maintained Equipment And Furniture
Casinos must ensure the safety of furniture and equipment for casino guests. This includes chairs, tables, elevators, escalators, and more. These items must be properly maintained and inspected to keep guests safe.
Overserving alcohol to guests is a usual occurrence at casinos. While most casinos water-down their drinks, overserving is still a problem. Too much alcohol can result in alcohol poisoning and even death. Additionally, overserving alcohol contributes to drunk driving accidents. If an over-served driver injures other people, those injured people may be eligible for a dram shop lawsuit against the casino.
Dimly Lit Parking Lot
If guests cannot see in the parking lot, there is a risk of vehicle-pedestrian accidents. Additionally, this also applies inside the casino. Dim lighting can contribute to slip and fall injuries.
Lack of Proper Security
Some casinos do not properly staff their security. Security personnel must be in place to ensure the safety of the guests on casino property. A lack of proper security can lead to robberies and assaults.
When is the Casino Liable?
If the casino has been negligent, they may be liable for any injuries and damages that incur. Premises Liability laws protect guests when they are injured on casino property.
If a guest is injured on casino property, the casino might be responsible. The casino has a reasonable duty of care to protect guests from any foreseeable accident or injury on casino property. And, casino injury cases can be worth big money for seriously injured people.
