Common Hotel and Casino Accidents

A trip to Las Vegas should be fun with gambling and shows, as well as some of the best restaurants in the world. 

An accident or injury at a hotel casino can completely ruin your vacation and leave you with injuries that could change your life.

Is the hotel casino responsible for your injuries?

Common reasons people get hurt at hotel casinos

  1. Hotel room injuries- Your room has many things that can cause injury to you while visiting Las Vegas. Faulty wiring, malfunctioning shower or tub, broken furniture, or even security keys that may open your door that some else has.

  2. Transportation accidents- Many hotels offer a shuttle service to events and the airport. While this is a convenient service it can be dangerous. The driver may not be safe, like driving while texting. The driver may not have been trained properly. The shuttle may not be maintained or run properly leading to an accident 

  3. Elevator and escalator accidents- These can pose substantial danger when they are not maintained properly. Falls from both escalators and elevators are common when escalators catch clothing and elevator doors fail to close. Being stuck on an elevator between floors is also a common problem.

  4. Food poisoning- There are so many choices when it comes to dining at a casino hotel. Most casino’s like the Palms have a buffet that can feed several hundred people at one time. That amount of food can be dangerous if not stored or prepared properly. Serious food poisoning can lead to a trip to the hospital

  5. Negligent security- Security that is not properly trained or lack of security personnel is the main reason things like robberies, assaults by other patrons happen at casino hotels. Even though there are cameras all over the casino floor there are areas where cameras are not like restaurants, restrooms, and hotel rooms. 

  6. Damaged furniture- Broken or unmaintained furniture can cause patrons to take falls that can lead to severe injuries.


Whether you’re a patron or an employee of the Palms, these accidents can happen to anyone at any time.

If you are injured while at a hotel casino you need to hire a personal injury attorney.

How Long do I Have to File a Claim?

In Nevada the statute of limitations or the time you have to file a claim is two years from the date of your accident.
