Pool Injuries at Mandalay Bay
Over the years the pool scene or pool club parties have become a regular attraction in LAs Vegas and Mandalay Bay is no exception.
The pool area alone is an impressive 11 acres and contains 2700 toms of real sand.
They have an adult, top optional pool located on the property that is walled to separate from the other pool areas.
If you’re really looking for adventure you can grab a tube or body surf the 1.6 million gallon wave pool, or you can also take your tube a float down the lazy river, only one of three in all of Las Vegas.
All of this sounds great for a trip to Vegas or if you’re a local, a great way to cool off at the pool in the hot summer months.
They do let locals go to the pool with local I.D and a small fee, But when it’s 110 degrees outside the pool could be the much needed reprieve.
Slip and fall accidents are common at the pool, so are cuts and other related accidents.

Common Hotel Casino Accidents
There are many injuries that are common amongst all hotel and casinos in Las Vegas including Mandalay Bay that include:
Slip and fall– This is the most common and is caused by wet surfaces, torn or loose carpet, broken handrails on staircases, uneven or cracked floor areas, parking areas that are cracked or uneven, old broken furniture that is unstable , and broken escalators.
Food poisoning– This happens when food is served when the safety codes for food service are not followed including food served from room service, bar restaurants, pool areas and buffets.
Pool injuries– Mandalay Bay has an 11 acre pool area with a wave pool and lazy river so pool incidents can be a common occurrence. These happen when there are too many people at the pool and it’s too crowded or there is no lifeguard on duty. Many people have even drowned at the pools in Las Vegas. People have been known to become paralyzed after diving into the shallow end of a pool and breaking their necks.
Elevator accidents– People have been stuck in hot elevators for hours on occasion due to improper maintenance, or faulty equipment
Rape, theft and assault- Most casino’s including Mandalay do a very good job of sweeping these crimes under the rug. Because most of the time the casino plays a part in the crime with poorly lit areas like garages, lack of security in many areas, room locks that don’t work or are easy to get into.
Hotel Vehicle accidents– Mandalay Bay and most other hotel properties offer shuttle or limo services to guests, particularly high roller clients for use while they stay. These can get involved in a car accident(even with Uber driver) just like anyone else due to improperly trained drivers, drunk or negligent drivers, and improperly maintained vehicles.
Bed Bugs- Yes they do exist and they are gross and can cause all kinds of medical problems for someone who has slept in a bed that has bed bugs. Bed bugs exist everywhere but are more common when hotel rooms are not cleaned properly or the sheets are not washed properly or a mattress is old and not changed out.
