Las vegas casino accident attorneys
Las Vegas is known around the world for its incredible hotels and casinos. However, these hotels and casinos are singularly focused on keeping their gaming revenues high. In order to do so, they attract guests with the prospect of a Vegas type experience, promoting alcohol, entertainment, and nightlife. With all of the focus on guest fun and excitement, guest safety is often neglected.

Unfortunately, many other individuals hurt or injured in a hotel or casino-related accident die of their injuries.

What Do You Do If You Were Hurt?
In addition to filing a report and getting immediate medical care, you should also take pictures of any injuries you sustained as well as pictures of the surrounding area of where you were injured and the thing that caused your injury. Be sure to take pictures at various angles to capture as many details as possible of the circumstances and surrounding scene. These pictures can be critical to establishing the casino’s wrongdoing later on.
If you were hurt due to a trip or slip and fall, it is also important that you keep and store the shoes you were wearing when the accident occurred. Lawyers for the property’s insurance company will most likely ask to inspect them down the line, should you decide to file a personal injury lawsuit.
