What to do if Injured at The Silverton

There are several steps you need to take when injured at any casino hotel including The Silverton.

Any good lawyer will tell you to follow these steps to protect yourself going forward:

Once you’re injured you need to notify the management or security officer of the casino hotel.

Once the hotel has been notified, request medical attention. You may think that you don’t need it and that you may not be injured but go get checked out anyway.

You never know what injuries you have that are not visible. Also injuries can present themselves later.

You will also need medical records for any future claims you might need to make.

When you are safe, gather as much evidence as you can. This means take video and photos on your phone of the accident scene and the injuries if you can. If you notice any other guests that witness the incident ask to get their contact information and ask them to give a statement as to what they witnessed. Gather any other information like reports and video from the casino.

Don’t accept any immediate offers for compensation. Casinos have a tendency to offer immediate solutions to a problem, if you win big they offer you a suite, if you lose a few dollars you’ll get a free buffet. The same applies if you get hurt while at a casino like The Silverton.

The Silverton may offer you something that looks like compensation, like a free stay or vacation package.

It might sound like a good idea but never accept these offers. Going forward these gifts can be misinterpreted  as a part of your settlement for the injuries you sustained. Also never sign anything that releases the company from liability.

Contact an experienced legal expert in casino injury cases. Casino owners and insurance representatives will try to have you settle your claim with low ball offers or try to deny your claim altogether. After you seek medical treatment and before you do anything else you need to seek the advice of a legal representative who can help you navigate the claims process and get you the settlement you deserve.

Common Injuries at The Silverton

Like all other casino hotel properties in Las Vegas there are a few common injuries that we see all to often:

Slip and Fall– The most common injuries in casino hotels. Wet floors, uneven carpet, broken escalators, badly lit areas, and old broken furniture are all causes of slip and falls at casino hotels

Food Poisoning- With so many food outlets and so much food passing through the casino – poor packaging, poor handling and storage can result in food poisoning resulting in a trip to the E.R.

Swimming Pool Accidents– Drownings, slip and falls around the pool area and chemical burns from pool chemicals are all considered pool accidents

Assaults– Inadequate security and intoxicated patrons can be the cause of assaults on you as a guest of the hotel casino.

Burns– Broken plumbing leading to dangerously hot water can result in a guest getting burned.


Who’s Responsible for my Injuries at The Silverton?

At The Silverton it can be confusing to figure out who is responsible for the injuries you suffered.

A good lawyer will investigate to determine who is responsible for your injuries.

There may be one responsible party or multiple parties.

Regardless, we will help you find the responsible party to get you the settlement you deserve.

The most common responsible parties are:  

  • The casino owners or management

  • The property owner

  • Manufacturing company of an outside vendor item

  • A contractor for the casino like an escalator maintenance company

  • The parent company of the hotel

  • A casino employee

As you can see there are many possibilities as to who might be responsible for your injuries.

A personal injury lawyer with expertise in casino injuries can gather evidence and help.

Silverton Casino History

Located a few miles off the strip, Silverton Casino or Silverton Lodge is a 300 room casino hotel with a rustic theme that opened in 1994.

Originally known as Boomtown Las Vegas the property failed to make money due to its location.

The area around The Silverton has since taken off making it a destination for locals as well as tourists.

In 2004 a Bass Pro Shop was added as part of a renovation that includes a 117,000 aquarium that features Mermaid shows.

Additionally there is a timeshare tower, The Berkley Las Vegas and Nevada’s first Cracker Barrel restaurant is located at The Silverton.

Additionally, The Silverton added a 150 room Hyatt Place as part of the plan to create a village environment.

When you’re injured at a place like The Silverton you may think it’s simple and you fill out some paperwork, maybe see a doctor and The Silverton agrees to pay for all your expenses right?

That couldn’t be any further from the truth.

There are many questions that need to be answered and one of the biggest is who is ultimately responsible for my injuries?

Since The Silverton has grown into a small village area with many corporate partners, the answer to who is responsible can be very confusing and difficult to decipher.

It could be one business owner or multiple, only a full investigation can determine the responsible parties.
