Understanding Who’s Liable for Your Injuries after an Accident
Just because an accident occurs while at a casino does not mean the casino is responsible. The case will need to proven in court. An experienced personal injury attorney can help determine if the accident occurred due to negligence or any other fault of the casino’s owner. The casino owner maintains responsibility for the repair of their property. Regular checks and upgrades are made to ensure customer and visitor safety.
The personal injury lawyers of Jones Wilson LLP are experienced in casino injury litigation and have been protecting the rights of injured victims in Las Vegas for over 20 years. Cory Jones and Justin Wilson both served as insurance defense lawyers for casinos. They know how to litigate valid casino injury cases. For example, did you know that injuries incurred in casinos on the Las Vegas strip are handled very differently than those incurred in tribal owned casinos?
Know How Tribal Laws May Affect Your Case Differently
Tribal casino laws differ from state and federal regulated casinos. A personal injury lawyer must be licensed to practice inside a tribal court if the injury occurred on tribal land. Most Native American tribes have the right to develop the laws for their land, which can be an obstacle to overcome if you are injured on these premises. Even though the situation may be difficult, you should still fight for your personal right to compensation. Many cases have been heard, and the casino has been held liable for the personal injury.
