Accidents Occur at Gold Coast Casino
Our attorneys are the best in these casino related accident cases.
In many instances the injury could have been prevented.
The best way to avoid an accident in a casino or hotel is to be safe and follow all the rules, but even then accidents can happen.
Dangerous Flooring – When a floor is wet and slippery a guest can take a hard fall and an injury can turn a fun trip into a nightmare. Water and a spilled beverages can do havoc on an unaware customer. Wet floors from mopping or spills should be immediately cleaned up and signage posted to let the guest know of the hazard. Rain on the shoes of visitors coming in from the outside can bring the hazard in the lobby, elevator, bathrooms etc. Food and debris left on the floor can cause a trip or slip as well. Uneven flooring, cracked tiles, loose mats and torn carpet can also be a major hazard to a guest.
Bad Lighting – Not having the proper lighting can cause a fall and injury. Parking lots that are dimly lit can create a danger for a guest to be robbed or attacked. Major injuries have been known to happen in stairwells where lights may be inadequate. Lighting is important in many ways and can deter criminal activity from happening. Unfortunately, casinos can attract a criminal element and bright lights in the parking garages and other areas need to be well lit for the safety of everyone.
Food Poisoning – What a way to ruin a good time. Being poisoned can happen at any of the restaurants on the property. The room service you ordered may be tainted. This can put a guest in the hospital if the reaction is serious. The reason for this event could be the kitchen staff, food company suppliers, restaurant owners etc. The food may have been fine but was undercooked or left on the counter too long before it was cooked. There are many reasons why food poisoning can happen and most times it is not the customer’s fault.
Security Issues – There is always a chance for an injury and when there are security issues a guest can be in danger. With gambling and drinking emotions can run hot. Security is extremely important to providing safety for the guest. The entire property inside and out needs to be on camera. No one wants to get assaulted or robbed when at the GC. Guests should be able to go to and from the parking lot safely and move throughout the inside with no stress. Security must be trained and ready to respond if there is any type of incident. Not having enough security can be an issue and create a more dangerous environment.
Escalators and Elevators – Proper upkeep on these are important. If either one of these breaks and comes to an immediate stop the guest can be thrown about and be injured. Being trapped in an elevator can also be traumatizing and the victim may panic. Defective parts or improper maintenance are usually the cause when there is an elevator or escalator accident.
Broken Furniture – Sitting down and if the chair or barstool breaks can put a person in immediate harm. This type of injury can really catch a guest off guard. All throughout the casino property there are chairs and stools at all the table games. Lounges, restaurants, pool side, and in the hotel rooms furniture is in constant use. Maintenance must be on the lookout for broken furniture and replace it or fix it immediately. If they do not handle these issues in a reasonable amount of time, they can be held liable for the damages.
Pool Accidents – Anytime there is a swimming pool there needs to extra precautions. Especially in a hotel and casino environment where there may be intoxicated guests taking a dip in the pool. Hot tubs can be dangerous as well because a guest may find themselves so relaxed that they fall asleep. The potential for drowning is always there at a pool. Lifeguards and security measures need to be in place in order to make sure a tragic event doesn’t occur. Lifeguards need to be properly trained and alert at all times.
If a business is going to invite guests on their property then they have a legal obligation to upkeep the facility.
This is important for the safety of the guests.
If the property is not keeping up on these issues then the risk for injury will increase.
How Long Do You Have to File a Lawsuit?

Speaking with a witness and gathering information that can help you win a lawsuit needs to be done immediately.
This will give you a much better chance of success.
