Taking a break in the glittering world of Las Vegas strip is a dream-come-true for many. It is, however, important to remember that here, too, accidents can happen.
Injuries by slipping are among the most common injuries to guests at Las Vegas strip hotels. This includes slips on the wet surfaces around hotel pools; slips on spilled drinks and slips on carelessly discarded fruit items.
Tripping over other people’s bags in crowded casinos or arcades or loose carpet edges on steps are also responsible for many injuries on holiday in Las Vegas.
Injury by falling
Poorly lit stairways occasionally claim victims by causing guests to trip and fall down stairs. On some occasions, guests have been known to fall off equipment used to entertain them.
While slipping, falling or tripping injuries are by far the most commonly experienced accidents, gym equipment and valet parking can also cause injuries in Las Vegas.
Defective gym equipment
Inadequate instruction or supervision while using hotels’ gyms may also lead to personal injuries, including sprains, back injuries and, depending on the circumstances, even broken bones.
Valet parking accidents
In spite of the fact that most people enjoying the nightlife of Las Vegas on foot, occasionally, revellers are run over by cars as they leave hotels, clubs, etc. In many cases, these incidents are the result of careless actions by valet parking attendants.
If you were injured in Las Vegas during the past three years and the accident leading to your injury was caused by another person’s lack of attention, negligence or other mistake, you may qualify for personal injury compensation.
