Experienced Personal Injury Lawyers in Salt Lake City
Drinking is a popular pastime among patrons of casinos. However, it can quickly become dangerous when bartenders and servers misjudge, overlook, or otherwise fail to acknowledge the amount of alcohol provided to visitors. This is referred to as dram shop liability, and victims and families of this type of negligence are encouraged to take legal action against the parties responsible.
Take, for example, a recent case of ours involving the deaths of a mother and two daughters hit by a drunk driver who was overserved at Peppermill Casino. Despite visible impairment, the man was permitted to leave the casino and drive home. In this case (and many others like it), the drunk driver is not the only person to blame. We must also look closely at the casino’s staff, who knowingly overserved a patron and then let him operate a vehicle.

Types of Casino Injuries
Casino floors can be dangerous if improperly maintained or secured, which can easily result in a serious injury. If you were injured while visiting a casino, you should seek compensation for the resulting damage. Casinos circulate a large number of people each day, and sometimes they aren’t able to keep up with the crowd. Spills or furniture breaks may be overlooked or even ignored, creating hazards for you and other guests.
If the casino manager, owner, or employees have been negligent in maintaining a safe environment for visitors, they should be held liable for their actions. These types of personal injury cases can cause untold amounts of damage, from minor cuts to wrongful death. Whatever the injury or resulting damage, if it was caused by the negligence or error of another, we want to help you seek compensation.
Common types of casino accidents include:
- Alcohol-related accidents
- Alcohol server liability
- Slip-and-fall accidents
- Trip-and-fall incidents
- Security guard issues
- Food poisoning
- Health club or salon accidents
Most injuries sustained on the premises of the casino or in casino property, such as a transportation shuttle, can be considered the responsibility of the casino. The circumstances may determine whether or not the casino was responsible, but if they acted neglectfully in any way, you may have a personal injury case.
Fight for Maximum Compensation
Any type of injury sustained at a casino can result in serious damage. You could break bones, suffer a concussion, become ill, or experience some other type of painful harm. Whether you slipped on the hotel floor and injured your hip or dealt with severe food poisoning from an inadequately cooked meal, the responsible parties should be held liable. Whether you were injured in a casino in Wendover, Mesquite, Las Vegas, Laughlin, or Reno, our firm wants to help.
