Do You Have a Case Against the Hotel or Casino? Answer These 3 Questions


If you have experienced an injury or suffered damages while staying at a hotel or casino, you may be wondering if you have a case. It can be difficult to determine whether you have a legitimate legal claim against either of these two establishments.

Our hotel & casino accident lawyer at Cameron Law can review the circumstances surrounding your accident and advise you on whether or not you can sue the establishment for your injuries and damages. Attorney Daven P. Cameron handles hotel and casino accident cases in Henderson, Las Vegas, Paradise, and Spring Valley.

Ask Yourself These 3 Questions Before Suing the Hotel/Casino

If you wonder if you can sue a hotel or casino, there are three important questions that can help you understand if you have a case against the establishment:

1. Was the Hotel/Casino Obligated to Provide Reasonable Care to You?

The first question you should consider is whether the hotel or casino had a duty to provide reasonable care to you. This means that the establishment had a legal obligation to take reasonable steps to ensure your safety while you were on their property.

Examples of reasonable care may include ensuring that your room is free of hazards, maintaining safe conditions throughout the property, and providing adequate security measures to prevent crimes such as theft or assault.

2. Did the Hotel/Casino Breach Its Duty of Care (e.g., Due to Negligence)?

If you believe that the hotel or casino failed to provide reasonable care to you, the next question is whether this failure was due to negligence. Negligence occurs when the establishment fails to take reasonable precautions to prevent harm to its guests. For example, if the hotel failed to repair a broken staircase or maintain adequate lighting in a parking lot, and you suffered an injury as a result, you may have a case for negligence.

3. Did You Suffer Damages Due to the Hotel/Casino’s Breach?

Finally, even if you can prove that the hotel or casino breached their duty of care due to negligence, you must also show that you suffered damages as a result. This may include physical injuries, emotional distress, lost wages, or property damage. In order to have a successful legal claim, you must be able to demonstrate that the damages you suffered were a direct result of the hotel or casino’s breach of their duty of care.

When gathering evidence and building your case, you might want to seek the assistance of a lawyer to ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve. You do not have time to waste after the accident because Nevada has a two-year statute of limitations for personal injury claims (Nevada Revised Statutes § 11.190).
