Slip and fall accidents: Woman files suit after fall in casino

Thousands of people are injured every year across the country due to dangerous conditions in public places such as stores and restaurants. What is even more frustrating is that these injuries may be prevented by taking a few basic safety precautions. Things like bunched up floor mats, liquid on the floor or uneven ground can lead to slip and fall accidents. Laws implemented in the state of South Carolina make it the responsibility of property and business owners to remove or repair potential hazards. Victims who are injured by hazards in stores and business may be able to take legal action.

A woman in another state claims she was injured after falling in a casino, and she has filed a lawsuit. According to the lawsuit, the woman was a guest at the casino and was walking through the establishment. The woman claims she encountered a hole in the ground that caused her to fall.

Allegedly, the woman suffered injuries due to the fall. She is holding the owners of the casino responsible and claims that they were negligent in repairing the alleged hazard. She is seeking all reasonable damages, as well as court costs and other fees.

Although some accidents are completely unpredictable and unpreventable, some accidents may be averted when property owners eliminate potential hazards. Those in South Carolina who believe they have suffered injuries due to negligence in slip and fall accidents could benefit from discussions with a legal representative. Damages awarded from a successfully litigated lawsuit could provide much-needed compensation for victims who may be facing financial hardship.
