We Represent Casino Slip and Fall Victims from Las Vegas to Atlantic City
Retailers, hotels, restaurants and other businesses which invite the general public into their establishment all must take care to prevent one of the most common and potentially dangerous accidents that can cause some, especially the elderly, significant injury. The common accident we are discussing is a slip and fall injury. A slip and fall injury can be one where a person falls from an elevated height of 10 feet for example or when someone trips over a curb. The United States Center for Disease control reports that over 17,000 people are killed in slip and fall deaths in the United States every year. Leading Las Vegas personal injury law firm Benson and Bingham has represented individuals from across the Nevada and the United States in slip and fall cases from Las Vegas and Atlantic City.
Slip and fall injury accidents can be caused by a number of factors. Curbstones, parking chocks, door sills and cables can be common causes of Las Vegas or Atlantic City parking lot injuries. Wet and ice weather can also cause slippery and wet floors, and as people lose traction, then can slip and fall. The NSC, National Safety Council, reports that there are approximately 110,000 slip and fall injuries annually in the United States. Slip and fall accidents can result in a number of different injuries, including death, broken bones, sprains, spinal cord, join injuries and even head injuries. Costs from a slip and fall death are approximately $940,000, which doesn’t include the victim’s family’s pain and suffering. On average, a non-fatal slip and fall injury can cost an individual approximately $28,000.
