San Manuel Casino Slip And Fall

Postby Amado » Sun Dec 04, 2016 1:00 am

First of all, an Indian casino is generally not subject to the same laws and jurisdiction as if you were injured on other commercial property. I am not sure, but I don't think you can sue them. But if they have a claim's department, by all means submit all of your medical records and bills to that department.  I would think they would cover any out of pocket medical expenses that you have had. The other issue is, are they even liable for the accident. Just like a fall in a grocery store, the operators of the business must have "known or should have known" of the hazard and failed to remove it in a timely manner. So, if someone just a brief time before you fell had spilled a drink or some food and this is what you slipped on, the casino really has no liability. They did not cause it and there is no way they could have "known" of the problem quickly enough to prevent the accident. Of course, if you have evidence to the contrary that would help the case but again, I don't know if you can deal with the casino like you could with another business. Be happy to get the out of pocket meds. Good luck.
