With the rise of casino gaming across the United States, more and more Las Vegas gaming companies are expanding beyond the Silver State. For years, Casino gaming was only allowed in Nevada and New Jersey, but Native American tribes were granted the ability to offer casino games in 1988 when the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act was passed. Casinos then sprouted up in Connecticut, California, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, Washington Oklahoma, Texas, Wyoming, West Virginia, Wisconsin, New York, New Mexico, Alabama, North Carolina, Missouri, Mississippi, Michigan, Minnesota, Maryland, Maine Louisiana, Arizona, Iowa, Kansas, Indiana, Illinois, Florida, Idaho, Delaware, Alaska and Colorado. Many of the 566 casinos across the United States (as of 2010) are managed and branded by Las Vegas casino companies, so often times, those injured in casino accident outside of Nevada are required to file suit in Nevada. Our firm, Benson and Bingham represents Americans nationwide in casino accidents tried in Las Vegas.
The majority of casino injury lawsuits are for slip and fall and other personal injury incidents that happen to casino players or people staying in a casino’s hotel. Other times, however, accidents can happen while the building is under construction. In January, there was a construction accident in a Cincinnati casino that had 50% ownership of Las Vegas, Nevada’s Caesar Entertainment Company. Support beams failed when construction workers were pouring concrete. Workers fell thirty feet. Many of the workers, who suffered broken bones, bruises and scrapes headed to a local hospital for evaluation. Benson and Bingham can represent you in most casino accidents across the United States.
