Las Vegas casinos are famous for their lodgings, food and above all, their entertainment. Whether you are checking in as a guest or frequenting one as a public patron, the noise and visual stimulations can be disorienting and overwhelming. At George T. Bochanis Law Offices, our Las Vegas Casino injury lawyers are familiar with the hazards or actions that may have caused your injury.
For example, perhaps a casino failed to address loose carpeting in a hallway or didn’t fix a problem with a stairway railing. Maybe you slipped and fell on a wet floor and there was no sign to warn you. Dim lighting may have prevented you from seeing an obstacle on the floor, causing you to trip unexpectedly or the lack of security at a sold-out show led to an injury caused by a criminal act on the casino premises.
Regardless of how your injury occurred, our casino accident attorneys in Clark County know that it can impact your life in many ways. A fall can affect any part of your body, and common injuries include the following:
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, falls are the number one cause of traumatic brain injuries. After a head injury, you may experience dizziness, mild confusion or brief unconsciousness, all of which are signs of a concussion. A concussion usually requires several days of rest so that the damaged brain cells can have a chance to heal.
Our hotel injury attorneys in Las Vegas recommend seeking medical attention after a fall, since not all injuries are immediately obvious and many cause long-term effects. For example, after a head injury, you are three times more likely to suffer a second head injury. Studies also show that a single head injury increases your risk of stroke and dementia, even years after the accident. Likewise, a back injury can later cause other complications, impeding your quality of life. Nevada has a statute of limitations on personal injury lawsuits, so a problem that surfaces later may not be eligible for compensation.
Our goal is to discover every responsible party and ensure that your medical costs, lost wages and pain and suffering are compensated. Our Clark County hotel injury law firm can also provide services to you if you have sustained injuries due to motor vehicle accidents, dog bites, products liability, workers’ compensation and wrongful death cases.
