Have You Been Injured at the Wynn Resort in Las Vegas?
If you have been injured at the Wynn Resort in Las Vegas due to a misfortune for which you were not to blame, you should be eligible to claim compensation for an accident in the Wynn Hotel Las Vegas. Even if you were not a guest of the resort, but were injured at the Wynn Resort in Las Vegas while visiting – or working in – the resort, you might still be entitled to Las Vegas hotel accident compensation.
This article illustrates some of the occasions on which you may be able to claim compensation for an accident in the Wynn Hotel Las Vegas. However, as the consequences of being injured at the Wynn Resort in Las Vegas affect everybody differently, it is essential that you discuss your claim for Las Vegas hotel accident compensation with a lawyer to obtain advice which is relevant to your specific circumstances.
Before Making a Claim for Las Vegas Hotel Accident Compensation
Before making a claim for Las Vegas hotel accident compensation there are some procedures that have to be completed in order to support your claim for compensation for an accident in the Wynn Hotel Las Vegas.
The first procedure is to make sure that your injuries are properly documented. Most accident victims would usually attend a hospital or medical center immediately after being injured at the Wynn Resort in Las Vegas and have their injuries examined, treated and recorded in their medical history. However, not all injuries manifest straightaway; and, if you have not already undergone a medical examination, it is vital that you do so to support your claim for compensation for an accident in the Wynn Hotel Las Vegas.
It also has to be determined that the Wynn Hotel – a member of its staff or an agent of the resort – was responsible for causing your injury through a failure in its duty of care and that the negligence directly resulted in your accident and injury. It will assist the determination of negligence if you were able to photograph the scene of your accident from your mobile phone, or if you reported your accident to a member of the hotel management at the time.
Naturally, the nature of your injuries might have been your first concern after an accident at the Wynn Hotel, or could have prevented you from making a formal complaint. Your lawyer should be able to establish negligence either through the resort´s security CCTV or from witnesses who saw your accident, and it is recommended that you speak with a lawyer as soon as possible while the memories of potential witnesses are still fresh.
Potential Accidents at the Wynn Hotel
We have compiled a selection of accidents which could potentially occur at the Wynn Hotel which would entitle you to claim Las Vegas hotel accident compensation. These are not accidents which have necessarily occurred in the past at the hotel, and if the accident in which you were injured is not listed below it does not imply that you are not eligible for compensation for being injured at the Wynn Resort in Las Vegas.
Injury Compensation for a Trip at the Wynn Hotel
The standard of accommodation at the Wynn Hotel is among the best in Las Vegas; however, you could still be injured in a trip accident that could have been avoided with greater attention being paid by the hotel, its employees and agents. It only takes one tile to be loose by the pool, one cable to come free on the dance floor, or one towel left on the floor of the resort´s spa to cause a trip accident at the Wynn Hotel.
It should be pointed out that the Wynn Hotel does not have an “absolute” duty of care to provide a safe environment during your stay – for example if you tripped over a towel in the spa that had been dropped by a guest just moments before – but when the hazard could have been removed and the risk of injury avoided (and you are injured at the Wynn Resort in Las Vegas due to a lack of care), you should be able to claim compensation for an accident in the Wynn Hotel Las Vegas.
Injuries Sustained at the Wynn Las Vegas Casino
There are many scenarios in which an accident could happen in the Wynn Las Vegas casino – not least because of its highly polished floors! Slips on spilled drinks, trips over a variety of potential hazards and falls from chairs by the slot machines are just some of the ways in which guests can sustain injuries at the Wynn Las Vegas casino.
Casinos are also highly emotive environments, with the potential for huge amounts of money to be won and lost. Altercations can sometimes break out between gamblers in which bystanders can get hurt and if a lack of hotel security is responsible for you being injured at the Wynn Resort in Las Vegas, this would also give you grounds to claim Las Vegas hotel accident compensation.
Injured Falling on the Stairs of the Wynn Resort Las Vegas
Injuries sustained from falling on the stairs of any hotel in Las Vegas are not particularly uncommon – particularly in show venues and nightclubs in which the lighting is deliberately subdued. Other injuries caused by falling can be attributable to items of food dropped on stairs, or hazards such as worn carpets and electrical cables being draped across a stairway.
Similar to the trip accidents mentioned above, the Wynn Resort does not have an “absolute” duty of care if you fell on the stairs of the Wynn Resort in Las Vegas due to a hazard which could not have reasonably been foreseen, or which had only just manifested and that staff did not have time to acknowledge and remove before your accident occurred.
Injured due to an Escalator Accident at the Wynn Hotel
The Wynn Hotel was one of the first resorts in Las Vegas to install a spiral escalator and as much as it adds to the general attractiveness of the lobby area, if you have been injured due to an escalator stopping abruptly you will be able to claim compensation for an accident in the Wynn Hotel Las Vegas provided that it can be established that a lack of maintenance or safety checks was the cause of your accident.
The Wynn Hotel also has an extensive number of elevators throughout its premises and the neighboring Encore Resort. There are many reasons why elevators can fail, and injuries caused by elevator malfunctions and sudden landings are not uncommon events. It is also understandable that guests trapped in a lift whose doors will not open are likely to experience psychological injuries such as panic attacks.
Claiming Las Vegas Hotel Accident Compensation on Behalf of a Child
If your child is injured in an avoidable accident at the Wynn Resort, he or she is unable to claim Las Vegas hotel accident compensation themselves until they are eighteen years of age. As it is impractical to wait a long period of time to claim compensation for an accident in the Wynn Hotel Las Vegas, a parent or responsible guardian will have to act on your child´s behalf as a “guardian ad litem”.
The processes for claiming compensation for a child being injured at the Wynn Resort in Las Vegas are practically the same as for an adult with the exception that any settlement of compensation must first be approved by a judge before the claim can be resolved, and compensation funds are subsequently held by the courts until your child reaches adulthood. You will be able to draw against the funds held by the courts to pay for medical expenses and educational needs, and your lawyer will be able to go through this process in more detail with you when you speak with them.
