Staying at a hotel in Las Vegas can seem like the vacation of a lifetime…until you unexpectedly suffer an injury on the property. Although hotels and casinos have a legal obligation to ensure the reasonable safety of guests, many breach this duty to save time or money. Breaches of duty and acts of negligence can lead to hazards such as slippery floors, open swimming pools, dangerous staircases and criminals injuring you on your stay. If you have an injury from any type of accident in a hotel, contact our Las Vegas personal injury lawyers at Claggett & Sykes Law Firm for a free consultation about a potential premises liability lawsuit. The hotel may owe you compensation.
Common Hotel Accidents and Injuries in Las Vegas
Most hotel injuries trace back to issues within the property. The hotel or its grounds could contain defects that interfere with guests’ abilities to have a safe and enjoyable stay. It is up to hotel management to pay for regular property inspections, remain up to code, maintain the property, hire quality crews and make repairs as necessary. If the hotel fails to fulfill these duties, accidents and injuries can occur.
- Swimming pool accidents and unintentional drowning
- Slip, trip and fall accidents in Casinos
- Staircase, escalator and elevator accidents
- Criminal attacks, assaults and robberies
- Parking lot accidents
- Food poisoning
- Hotel shuttle accidents
As an injured hotel guest, you may have one of many serious types of injuries that impact your daily life. You may have suffered muscle injuries, bone fractures, cuts or scrapes, bruising, strains, sprains, head injuries, brain injuries, or back injuries. If you or a loved one have injuries from a hotel stay in Las Vegas, you may be able to hold the establishment accountable for your accident and related damages.
