But, sometimes a lapse in training or procedures leads to injury. A casino injury can happen in any number of ways. If you have a casino injury, discuss it with an experienced attorney.
As a customer or visitor to a casino, the casino is responsible for the safety of their property. If there are hazards or safety issues, the casino is responsible to fix them. If someone gets hurt because of the safety issue, the casino could be responsible.
Types Of Casino Injury
Injuries can happen in lots of different ways. But, there are several basic ways the law holds casinos accountable for customer’s safety.
Premises liability law deals with the responsibility of a property or business owner. Business and property owners owe a duty of safety to customers and visitors.
Dram shop law assigns injury responsibility when businesses serve too much alcohol. Casinos serve alcohol. Under Pennsylvania laws, places like this cannot serve too much alcohol to customers. When businesses over-serve alcohol, it creates a public safety hazard. Drunk people injure themselves and others.
Casino Injury Cases
Slip And Fall Injury

Dram Shop Lawsuits Against Casinos
Businesses that serve alcohol in Pennsylvania are required to refuse service to anyone visibly intoxicated. Yet, some bars and casinos will bend this rule for profit. Bartenders and servers hoping for bigger tips will continue to serve alcohol to drunk customers. When these drunken customers injure other people, the law allows injured people to sue the bar(s) that over-served the customer.
