Most of the time the person never sees it coming.

Here are some of the common causes of injuries at Harrah’s.

Broken Furniture – This happens more than you may think. A bed frame can go bad. You may go to sit in a chair and it is breaks. A desk falls over because of broken leg. A faulty bar stool can really cause damage. These accidents often happen out of nowhere when you least expect it. Going down on a hard floor can be devastating. The property owners and management must properly maintain the furniture. This means checking it regularly to make sure it is not faulty. If it is they have an obligation to fix or remove it. Furniture has screws and bolts and these need to be tightened if they get loose. Hotels and casinos have a high volume of customers constantly using the furniture. Booths and chairs should never tip over when someone sits down.

Slips, Trips, and Falls – This is one of the most common accidents in hotels and casinos. Management, and employees must be on the look out for wet spots on the floor. In the winter time snow can get brought into the lobby. This must be constantly checked. Any type of liquid is dangerous. Whether it is water or a spilled drink an unsuspecting guest can injure themselves if they slip and fall. Trips can happen with loose flooring, cracked tiles, or mats out of place. Defective flooring in hotels is unforgiving if you fall. Hotel employees can try and eliminate the hazards. They can do constant checks and have non slip mats. They should also remove any clutter or trash on the floor that can trip a person.

Electrical Issues – If there is defective wiring an electrical shock incident can happen. This is the last thing anyone wants when on vacation. Outlets, cords, or switches if defective can cause this type of accident. Faulty hair dryers or other items in the rooms can be dangerous. If a guest is injured because of being shocked on the property they have a case. The property can be held liable for any damages in these types of injuries. If there is an electrical issue in the hotel, they must fix it immediately. Leaving faulty wires exposed is not acceptable.

Elevator Malfunction – The Harrah’s Lake Tahoe has 18 floors. Elevators are constantly being used. There are times when an elevator malfunctions. Like anything else it needs to have constant maintenance. An elevator malfunction can leave a guest injured. All of a sudden, the elevator stops. Injuries can happen if the stop is abrupt. The elevator stopping between floors is dangerous. This can bring on panic to some. Hopefully it gets back going quickly. In cases that it doesn’t mental stress can cause heart rates to increase. No one wants to feel trapped in an elevator. The property must be constantly monitoring the elevator. They must service the elevator when it is time. This is not always the case. Properties may overlook the needed service. If a malfunction and injury happen, they can be held liable.

Pool, Spa, and Fitness – Swimming pools can be dangerous. There is always the risk of drowning or injury. Slip and falls are common around pool areas. Hot tubs and saunas can make a person faint or become dizzy. Rules must be followed in order to make these environments safe. Lifeguards need to be ready and properly trained. If they are not and an accident occurs the hotel can be held responsible. The pool at Harrah’s is open throughout the year. The fitness center has workout machines and equipment. If these are not maintained then an accident can take place.

Assaults and Attacks – These are injuries that will be due to the fault of another. These can happen inside the property or outside. Getting attacked in the parking lot can be traumatizing. Getting robbed at gunpoint terrifying. Being injured in a brawl that you did not start can leave you injured. Security has an obligation to keep their guests reasonably safe. Security must be always monitoring the property with cameras. Guards on foot or bikes need to be on patrol. These guards must also have their proper cards up to date and valid. Proper training can be crucial in stopping these types of incidences.

Food Poisoning – This can catch a guest off guard. It can send them to the bathroom or even worse the emergency room. There are many restaurants that this can occur at on the property. It can also happen through room service orders. Food must be prepared and stored correctly. There are many rules and procedures put in place to minimize food poisoning. Employees must be trained in these standards. Food poisoning can ruin your vacation. If you are a guest on a business trip it can have a financial effect on you. Not showing up to a meeting or losing an account because you were ill can be damaging.

Not every accident and injury are the fault of the property owner or employee.
