Examples of Common Casino Accidents in New Jersey
Casino accidents usually arise due to some dangerous or hazardous condition of the casino property. Common examples of the types of premises liability accidents that happen to guests in casinos include:
- Slip and fall accidents – Slip/trip and fall accidents are some of the most commonly occurring accidents at casinos. Guests can slip on spilled drinks or food, on recently mopped or waxed floors, or on snow and ice outside walking into the casino. Tripping accidents may result from wires or cords strewn across walking paths, torn carpets or rugs, broken staircases, or broken or uneven pavement and walkways.
- Elevator/escalator accidents – Elevator and escalator accidents are another commonly occurring type of accident in casinos. These types of accidents usually happen due to inadequate maintenance of elevator and escalator equipment, or due to design or manufacturing defects in the equipment. Casino guests may be crushed in elevator doors that prematurely close, or may trip or get stuck in an escalator that collapses under a guest.
- Parking lot accidents – Casino parking lots are an area where guests may be injured as vehicles come in and out of the lot or garage. The casino may be liable for these accidents where they occur due to negligent design or inadequate maintenance (such as broken lighting), or where a guest is hit by a vehicle being driven by a valet.
- Food poisoning – Guests may also suffer injury from eating contaminated food from casino restaurants or buffets. Bad food may include food that has been spoiled or prepared in a kitchen not following proper food safety rules.
- Negligent security – With money and alcohol being prevalent in a casino, it creates a perfect mix for people to engage in criminal or violent behavior. Innocent victims of that behavior may have a claim against the casino where criminal activity or violence is facilitated due to negligent security, including lack of lighting, security cameras, locks or keycard access, or trained security personnel.

Frequently Asked Questions about Casino Accidents in New Jersey
The statute of limitations under New Jersey law gives you only two years from the date of the accident to file a personal injury lawsuit against the casino and other liable parties for your injuries and losses. If you wait too long to file a lawsuit in your case, you risk filing an untimely suit that can be permanently dismissed by the court, losing you the right to pursue financial recovery from those at fault for the harm you have suffered.
Although it can be difficult to predict whether your case will end up being filed as a lawsuit or going to trial, most injury cases are settled long before reaching trial or even seeing the inside of a courtroom. Our attorneys will work diligently to secure maximum compensation for you as efficiently as possible through a negotiated settlement. But we also have the courtroom experience necessary to pursue your rights and interests in court, if litigation becomes necessary to give you the best opportunity for a fair and full financial recovery. Our firm will provide honest advice when we believe going to court is the right step in your case.
