What to do After Encore Accident
Any good personal injury attorney will tell you there are a few things to do immediately after an injury accident at The Encore.
Seek Medical Attention– you may not think you need to see a doctor but you should regardless of how you feel. Injuries you don’t know you have could be lingering. This also goes a long way for your future claim.
Don’t Sign Anything– report the incident to management or security of The Encore. But any lawyer will tell you never to sign anything or accept any “gifts” from the hotel casino.
Gather Information- if you’re safe only! Take pictures and video of the incident. Gather any witness contact information and statement if possible . You don’t know how fast video surveillance can disappear from a casino.
Hire a personal injury attorney- this should be the first thing you do , but in the scheme of things it’s better to get medical help first. But this decision could affect your future. You need an attorney that knows hotel casino injuries and is not afraid to take on the big casinos like The Encore.
No one expects to get hurt while on vacation in Las Vegas but it does happen.

Possible Settlements from Encore Injury
A personal injury law firms job is to reach a settlement that recovers all of your past and future compensatory expenses.
If the big hotels or any other business did what it was supposed to do when accidents happen, then personal injury lawyers would be out of a job.
Sadly, most businesses like casinos will try to deny your claim or pay you as little as possible.
A personal injury lawyer will negotiate with the company owners or insurance companies on your behalf to get you compensation for:
Medical Expenses – hospital stays, doctor’s appointments, rehab, mental health, medication, and future medical treatments
Lost wages- and salary, tips, bonuses and promotion you could lose out on because of your injuries
Loss of future earnings- any future tips, salaries, bonuses or promotions you will lose in the future because you were injured
Pain and suffering– from the impact of the injury
The largest settlements awarded are to those families who lose a family member to the injuries from negligence.
If your case goes to trial because a settlement can’t be reached you might be entitled to punitive damages.
Punitive damages are to punish the defendant for gross negligence or reckless malicious behavior causing your injury.
Punitive damages can be as much as three times of your compensatory damages.

Encore Hotel and Casino
Encore is the sister property to The Wynn Las Vegas and located on the same property as the Wynn.
Steve Wynn began construction on the second installment of his high end hotel property on April 28, 2006 on the one year anniversary of the opening of The Wynn.
Encore officially opened at 8pm on December 22. 2008. Since the economy at the time was in an economic downturn the high end resort opened to a much more subdued opening than other Wynn properties.
The Encore originally planned to employ 5,000 people with 1400 of them moving over from The Wynn.
Encore has 2,034 rooms and opened with 5 restaurants and once a nightclub.
Encore was in direct competition with the other high end property construction including the Cosmopolitan and City Center.
Encore’s opening included The Encore Esplanade, an upscale shopping experience that includes high end retailers like Chanel, Hermes, and Rock and Republic.
In 2010 Encore opened The Beach Club, a 55,000 square foot pool complex for adults only featuring a new attached nightclub known as Surrender.
XS the nightclub at The Encore became one of the top grossing nightclubs in the United States.
As nice of a property as The Encore is, a fight involving 15 to 20 people broke out in September 2020.
Wynn Resorts actually filed a lawsuit against the people involved in the fight.
The resort immediately increased security and added temporary metal detectors on the weekends.
Recently a guest of The Encore was drugged and robbed of a $60 thousand dollar watch and his casino chips and credit cards from other hotel patrons.
