Reno Casino & Tourism Injury Lawyers, Washoe County, NV

Local legal help for tourists injured and assaulted in casinos, hotels, and resorts in Nevada

Reno attracts tourists from all across the world and from right here in Nevada. The city, just about one-half hour away from Lake Tahoe, attracts visitors for its gambling casinos, fancy hotels, restaurants, shopping, summer lakes, and winter snow attractions. While these attractions bring joy to many, they bring pain and suffering to visitors and locals when personal injury accidents occur.

At Claggett & Sykes Law Firm, our Reno personal injury lawyers are respected across the state for our record of success fighting for injury victims and families. Through our trial, consulting, and appellate work, our lawyers have settled cases and obtained verdicts worth more than $800 million in total for our clients. We understand how to investigate casino and tourist accidents, and how to show the property owners and others are liable for the injuries and deaths they cause. We represent out-of-state victims as well as Nevada and Reno residents. Our lawyers demand compensation that places you in the same financial position as if the accident had never occurred.

Our Reno casino and tourism accident lawyers have the experience and resources to challenge the large casinos, hotels, and resorts. We anticipate the arguments and strategies these property owners make such as arguing that you assumed the risk of falling or injury, that they didn’t have actual knowledge of the dangerous condition, and that you might not be willing to spend time in Reno (when you live out-of-state) to litigate your claim.

We file premises liability claims against the casino, hotel, and resort owners and the maintenance and repair companies that fail to properly fix or respond to any unsafe conditions. We’re also skilled at filing claims against the parent companies and any subsidiaries.

    • Slip and fall accidents

What should you do if you’re injured while staying at a casino, hotel, or resort in Reno?

If you are hurt at any Reno tourist site, there are a few key steps you should take:

  • You (or someone with you) should notify the management or someone in charge that you fell, were attacked, or suffered an injury.
  • You should take photographs of the site especially of anything that might have caused the accident such as broken tiles.
  • You should seek medical help. The casino or hotel may have a healthcare professional staff. You or the management should contact paramedics if your injuries are serious. You should also seek care from a local emergency room.
  • You should NOT discuss how the accident happened and you should NOT admit fault.
  • You should contact our experienced premises liability lawyers as soon as possible.
