Las Vegas and surrounding areas are world-renowned for their gambling and entertainment venues, attracting thousands of tourists every year. However, like with any other business open to the general public, casino owners are responsible for providing guests with a safe, non-hazardous environment. Casinos that do not meet the appropriate safety standards designated by the state are more likely to have injured guests and can be subject to premise liability.

Under Nevada law, casino owners are responsible for keeping their facilities safe by correcting and anticipating safety hazards. This includes promptly removing hazardous materials from the premises, placing warning signs for slippery and wet floors, and cordoning off malfunctioning machinery, among other steps to keep casinos safe. Failure to do so could result in any of the following common types of common casino accidents.
When a casino owner or employee makes a mistake or fails to do what a reasonable person would to prevent an accident, the business is guilty of negligence. If the negligence causes anyone to get hurt, then the casino is considered to have breached its legal duty of care. When this happens, all injured persons are entitled by law to compensation from the casino for their injuries and losses. Common causes of negligence at casinos include the following.
Damages and loss that can qualify for compensation include medical and therapy bills, out-of-pocket expenses for prescriptions, additional medical costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
The key to maximizing your compensation following a casino accident is to build a solid case with strong evidence. In the event you are injured on the premises of a casino, follow these steps to ensure your rights are protected.
