Nevada law: Hotels must make their premises safe for guests
Hotels and casinos have a basic duty under Nevada law to make sure that their property is safe and free from any threats that may cause injury to a patron. Hotels and casinos in Nevada are well-known for having an adequate amount of staff on duty at any given time. While these employees may be focused mostly on gambling-type issues, they are usually well trained to spot safety issues, as well.
Even though hotels and casinos have often taken the proper steps to help ensure a patron's safety, an individual may still suffer injury while on the premises. Hotels and casinos are typically required to compensate individuals when they are injured on property belonging to the hotel or casino.
Our Las Vegas accident lawyers understand that hotels and casinos do not always take care of every possible safety risk. Every case is different and it is wise to consult with an experienced Nevada personal injury lawyer. We offer free consultations to go over the facts of your individual case in order and help you decide whether to proceed with a claim for your hotel or casino injuries.
Las Vegas hotel / casino negligence lawsuits
If you have been injured at a hotel or casino in Nevada, you may very well have a negligence cause of action against the establishment. There are four basic requirements that an injured party must show in order to be successful in a Las Vegas casino negligence action.
To prove a case of negligence against a hotel or casino, an injured party must prove:
- That the hotel or casino had a legal duty to the injured party;
- That the hotel or casino breached that duty;
- That the party's injuries were caused by the breach of duty; and
- That the hotel or casino's conduct caused the injury.
