Accidents and Injuries at The Wynn
With The Wynn being one of the nicest hotels on the strip you may wonder how accidents can happen at such a nice hotel property.
The amount of people that go through the property on a daily basis and a constant movement of large numbers of people is a part of the reason there are accidents that occur at The Wynn.
If repairs, maintenance and clean up are not done in a timely manner this leads to problems and then accidents.
Premise liability cases ca arise when employees fail to warn visitors of issues.
For example if an area is wet from a spill and that area is not cleaned up or there are no warning signs then the hotel could be liable for your slip and fall accident and injuries.
Common acidents at The Wynn:
Broken chair accidents
Parking Lot accidents
Injuries we see from casino accidents
Of course the slip and fall is a very common accident that can result in a sprained ankle or broken arm, but there are other injuries that happen.
If you do suffer an injury at The Wynn Casino please call us for help.
Casino’s like The Wynn are in the business of making money.
Let’s face it, Wynn wouldn’t exist on this scale if it wasn’t a money making machine.
There are many things that casinos do to keep the customers gambling and the property to remain profitable.
Sometimes this comes at the cost of customer safety.
For example, food left out too long at the famous Wynn Buffet can cause a patron to become sick from food poisoning.
If a person wins a large sum of money and is left to get to their room or their vehicle without adequate security, they might get robbed leaving the casino floor.
These are just some examples of incidents that occur at any hotel casino in Las Vegas like The Wynn.
When a casino is negligent you should have a legal team with expertise in these matters to help you get the relief you deserve.
Damages Recovered in a Wynn Injury Lawsuit
Accidents happen all the time in Las Vegas but when a casino accident goes beyond a ruined trip to the strip that is when we at The Richard Harris Law Firm step in.
We fight to get the full recovery of damages that you are entitled to from an injury sustained at a negligent casino.
These damages include:
All medical expenses including the immediate expenses and any future medical expenses
Changes in your itinerary due to your injuries
Lost income current and future
Mental health treatment for things like PTSD
Pain and suffering
Physical injury compensation
Additional financial costs caused by the injury from a casino accident due to negligence.
If your case ends up going to trial a judge or jury may also award you punitive damages.
Punitive damages are damages awarded by the court for the negligence of the casino or hotel.
These damages are a financial form of punishment because the casino, in this case The Wynn, was grossly negligent or knowingly negligently causing your injuries.
Punitive damages can be upwards of three times the amount of the total of the other damages.
What to do After injury at Wynn
If you are ever involved in an accident it’s vital to get the right people on your side to help you get what you deserve.
Remember the casino is a business and the employees of the casino are representatives of the casino, so they are not the people who are going to be the ones to help you get what you need.
There are a few things that any good personal injury attorney would recommend you do when injured at a Las Vegas casino like The Wynn.
Don’t Sign anything – Once you are injured the casino staff may attempt to make offers to you like free rooms, free gaming and meals to avoid being responsible for their negligence. Never sign many documents related to the accident without having an attorney go over the papers. Insurance companies are notorious for trying to have injured guests sign low ball offers to make the case go away. Once you sign documents you may have given up your right to sue and any chance of further financial relief from your injuries.
Document the casino hotel accident- If you’ve ever been in a casino hotel when accidents happen, they are quickly cleaned up. This is not only to get it out of the view of the other patrons but to hide it from you the victim. Hotel employees will move quickly to clean up evidence so taking photos or video of the accident and the scene could go a long way in playing a role in your lawsuit.
Gather witness statements- If you’re not in immediate danger and are in a safe place then you should get any witness statements and contact information. Accidents happen quickly and you might not really remember since you’re the victim.
Call a Las Vegas Personal Injury Lawyer- With over 40 years of experience in Las Vegas The Richard Harris Law firm is the one who will fight for their clients against the multi billion dollar casino industry.
Statute of Limitations in Nevada
In Nevada, there is a statute of limitations on filing a personal injury claim against a negligent casino.
You must file a claim within two years of the time you were injured.
Family members of a deceased victim can file a claim within two years of the date of the victim’s death.
If you’re under the age of 18 a parent or guardian can file a claim on your behalf within the two year time frame or you can wait until you are 18 and file.
But as a general rule, 2 years is the time frame.
That’s why hiring an attorney immediately is important.
