In late January, a woman filed a premises liability lawsuit against a casino. In her suit, she claims that she suffered slip-and-fall injuries while in the casino and that the casino is responsible, because the incident happened due to their negligence. Per the Louisiana Record, the woman was allegedly walking to the casino’s front entrance when she slipped and fell, which she blames on the casino failing to properly maintain the property. As a result of her fall, the woman suffered muscle and tissue injuries to her knees, back and neck.
What Should I Do If I Slip and Fall in a Casino?
Atlantic City has been a casino hub for decades. Each year, millions of people visit our city and pass through the doors of Atlantic City gambling establishments. Many of these people are tourists who are just here to enjoy a vacation. Therefore, it is extremely unfortunate when their vacation is ruined and their lives are thrown into chaos because a casino did not properly maintain its property. Whether it is something as simple as failing to display a wet floor sign on a freshly mopped floor, property owners and managers must be held accountable when their negligence results in someone suffering a severe or even permanent injury due to a slip and fall.
