Slot machines, roulette, blackjack – whatever game you’re into, there is something at the casino to suit you. Whether you’re there to have fun with friends or try your luck and win some serious cash, a day or night out at the casino can be lots of fun. Your personal safety is generally the last thing on your mind when you are there, but an accident in a casino could happen if something goes wrong. Have you suffered an injury in an accident in a casino? If you have, and the accident was not your fault, you may want to consider raising a claim for personal injury compensation. If you do consider this option, you should also consider employing the services of a personal injury lawyer, and that’s where Accident Advice Helpline can help you.
A slip, trip or fall accident in a casino can have serious consequences
The types of accidents that occur in a casino are many and varied. One of the most common however, is the slip, trip or fall accident. Although this might at first sound rather innocuous, this sort of accident often results in broken limbs and sometimes even head injuries.
It’s easy enough to understand how you could be involved in an accident in a casino such as this when you think about how busy casinos can be. There is also the consideration the last thing on anybody’s mind is health and safety. If someone leaves something lying around on the floor, it can easily become a trip hazard and catch out the unwary. If you slip on a wet floor after somebody has spilt their drink, or trip over a handbag or even on damaged flooring, you could sustain a minor or more serious injury.
What types of injuries could be sustained?
The injuries you can sustain from an accident in a casino such as this can be serious. We have already mentioned the possibility of breaking limbs, a possibility which is even more likely if the accident victim is someone who suffers from osteoporosis, the brittle bone disease. Elderly people are generally more likely to suffer serious fractures than young people, and their fractures can take longer to heal too – in the case of a fractured hip, for example, it may never fully heal and could cause ongoing pain and problems.
You can only claim personal injury compensation for accidents that are caused by others. But the other consideration is the nature of the injury. That’s why it’s important to get medical treatment for injuries from an accident in a casino. Not only does this prove that the injury really did take place, but also that it was severe enough to require medical treatment. If you later decide to make a claim for compensation for your injuries after an accident in a casino, Accident Advice Helpline will need to see evidence that you sought medical attention, normally in the form of a medical report/records from your doctor.
How can you stay safe in a casino?
Staying safe in a casino is really a matter of common sense. Bearing in mind that once you get ensconced in gaming, you will have little thought for health and safety, it is prudent to have a walk around and find out where the emergency exits are in case of fire. Also, make sure that you always look where you are going to avoid any potential slip, trip and fall hazards. If you notice spillages or a wet floor, reporting this to management is a good idea, not only for your own safety but for the safety of others too. Likewise, if you spill your drink, make sure somebody comes to clean up the mess and prevent creating a hazard for somebody else.
If you are injured in an accident for which someone else was to blame, and the accident happened in the last three years, you should think about how to claim compensation for an accident in a casino.
