Las Vegas hotels and Casinos go to great lengths to make their pool area a fun and exciting location for their guests to enjoy. These pools are often crowded, with loud music and large quantities of alcohol. These factors combined with the Las Vegas sun and heat, can present significant risks to guests, especially when there is a higher likelihood of slipping and falling on wet concrete. Many Las Vegas resorts even have scheduled times where they transform their pool into a club, where the increased number of people and, often, their increased consumption of alcohol, only increases the risks to guests. Meaning, the excitement of a Las Vegas pool can also come with an increased risk of pool-related injuries.
Who Is Responsible For My Pool Injury?
However, Las Vegas’ casinos are still responsible for ensuring their pool is reasonably safe. This responsibility increases when they increase the number of guests and provide them more alcohol. Whether you are a local or just visiting, if you were hurt while visiting a Las Vegas pool, the hotel may be responsible. If you have questions regarding your injuries or your ability to make a claim against a hotel/casino, call or stop by SJW Injury Attorneys today.
