You suffered serious injuries in a Las Vegas casino. Now what? You may know that you deserve compensation for your injuries due to the way your accident took place, whether due to negligent upkeep or a problem with the casino’s security. However, many accident victims find themselves wondering just how much compensation they should expect after an accident in a Las Vegas casino.

In order to understand the compensation you deserve for a serious accident in a Las Vegas casino, you must first understand several basic components of personal injury law, including who you should sue for compensation after your accident and how to determine liability.

Who Bears Liability for an Accident in a Las Vegas Casino?

Several parties may share liability for an accident that takes place in a Las Vegas casino. Most notably, the casino itself often bears liability for an accident that occurs as a result of negligence by the casino or its staff. However, other parties may also share liability for an accident that takes place in the casino, including:

  • The casino’s parent company
  • A hotel or other business where the casino is located
  • The owner of the property, even if it’s a standalone casino
  • A third-party company providing security at the casino
  • A company that provided a defective product or service to the casino: for example, a construction company that failed to properly construct a stairway or handrail

Most often, if the casino bears liability for an accident, you will need to deal with the casino’s insurance company. Most casinos carry property liability insurance that helps provide a high level of financial protection for anyone who suffers severe injury as a result of negligence on the part of the casino or its staff. However, if another party shares liability for the accident, it can complicate your claim. Talk with an experienced personal injury attorney as soon after your accident as possible to get a better idea of who may bear liability for the injuries you suffered and how you should pursue compensation.

The Duty of Care Carried by Casinos

Casinos in Las Vegas bear a strong duty of care to do whatever they can to reduce the odds of any foreseeable injury to its patrons. This requirement extends to all areas of the casino: the casino proper, its bathrooms, its parking lot, and any other area visitors may conceivably turn while in the casino. Las Vegas casinos must exercise all proper food safety requirements, avoid over-serving inebriated patrons, and provide adequate lighting and security. They must also keep up with regular maintenance, make sure that they provide a safe environment for their visitors, and even keep safety gear on hand so that they can provide reasonable aid during an emergency. If the casino fails in its duty in any way, you may have grounds for a personal injury claim regarding the injuries you sustained as a result of that act of negligence.

What Damages Can You Recover?

If you suffered damages in an accident in a Las Vegas casino, you can reasonably expect to recover damages under these categories.

1. Medical expenses.

Most often, medical costs serve as the foundation of any personal injury claim, including a personal injury claim stemming from an accident in a casino. If you sustained a serious injury, you may find yourself with mounting medical costs: the cost of emergency transport and treatment, the cost of your hospitalization or stay in a long-term care facility, and the cost of any ongoing treatments or procedures. If you suffered an injury that will leave you with lifelong limitations, you may have grounds to include durable medical equipment or those ongoing treatments as part of your claim. Furthermore, you may have the right to include physical and occupational therapy as part of your medical costs.

2. Lost wages.

After a serious accident, you may not have the capacity to return to work immediately–if at all. Some employers will work with their employees to get them back to work. Others may want their employees to stay home and focus on recovery. Unfortunately, if you cannot work after your accident, it may leave you without a source of income–and your regular bills will not stop coming while you manage the aftermath of your accident. You have the right to include those lost wages as part of your personal injury claim.

3. Lost earning potential.

You suffered a severe, life-altering injury. Now, you cannot go back to work in your former field–or, in some cases, go back to work at all. If your injuries prevent you from going back to work, you may seek compensation for lost earning potential, which can make it possible for you to pursue new certifications or opportunities in a new field.

4. Pain and suffering.

You have many tangible expenses associated with your accident and your losses. In many cases, you may also have immense personal losses that cannot be financially quantified. You may suffer significant physical pain because of your injuries or considerable emotional anguish. Your injuries may prevent you from engaging in the activities you usually enjoy or leave you dependent on someone else and unable to enjoy time with family members and friends. Talk to an attorney about how to include those non-financial losses as part of your personal injury claim and seek the compensation you deserve for them.

5. Wrongful death damages.

Did you lose a loved one in a Las Vegas casino accident? If so, you may have the right to recover wrongful death damages, which can help pay your loved one’s final medical bills as well as providing compensation to your family. Wrongful death compensation may include compensation for the deceased’s missing income, the services the deceased performed for the family, and the loss of the deceased in your life.
