Compensation for Injuries at the Bellagio Resort Las Vegas
If you have been a guest, a visitor or an employee of the Bellagio Las Vegas, and been hurt in an accident for which you were not to blame, you may be entitled to make a compensation claim for an accident at the Bellagio in Las Vegas.
This article explains how you can claim compensation for injuries at the Bellagio Resort Las Vegas and provides examples of some scenarios in which you may qualify for Las Vegas resort injury compensation.
However, no two settlements of compensation for injuries at the Bellagio Resort Las Vegas are ever identical, due to how the injuries you sustained affect your quality of life. Consequently it is recommended that you seek professional legal advice from a lawyer who can give you information which is relevant to your particular circumstances.
The Criteria for Claiming Las Vegas Resort Injury Compensation
The criteria for claiming Las Vegas resort injury compensation is not complicated. In order to be eligible to make a compensation claim for an accident at the Bellagio in Las Vegas, you must have sustained quantifiable injuries in an accident which would not have happened but for the resort – or an employee of the resort – failing in its duty of care.
Quantifying that you have sustained injuries is achieved by referring to your medical records. Therefore, if you have not had your injuries examined, treated and recorded in your medical history, visiting a medical center or hospital should be your priority – and not just for the purposed of claiming compensation for injuries at the Bellagio Resort Las Vegas!
Establishing that the Bellagio was in breach of its duty of care when your accident happened can be a little more complicated. Any photographs you were able to take of the hazard which caused your accident and injuries would be of benefit to your compensation claim for an accident at the Bellagio in Las Vegas, and your lawyer should be able to use security CCTV and the statements of witnesses to your accident to support your Las Vegas resort injury compensation claim.
Accidents Happen in Las Vegas Resorts
Accidents happen in Las Vegas Resorts, but not all of them are foreseeable and could not have been avoided. For example, if you slip of some food which has just fallen from a diner´s plate, and the restaurant staff could not have reasonably been expected to identify the hazard and remove it prior to your accident, the resort will not be considered to have failed in their duty of care.
However, there are many different scenarios in which the hotel could be at fault when you suffer injuries at the Bellagio Resort Las Vegas, and we have listed a selection below. Please note that these are not necessarily accidents which have occurred at the Bellagio, and the exclusion of any given accident does not imply that you will be unable to claim Las Vegas resort injury compensation.
Slips, Trips and Falls in the Bellagio
As mentioned above, the Bellagio does not have an “absolute” duty of care to provide you with a safe environment; but if you slip on a spilled drink in a bar at the Bellagio – which has presented a risk of injury for more than a few minutes – trip over a coat which has fallen from a chair in the casino or fall down stairs in one of the Bellagio´s theaters due to inadequate lighting, you should speak with a lawyer about making an injury compensation claim for an accident at the Bellagio in Las Vegas.
Accidents in the Bellagio Casino
Slips, trips and falls are not the only accidents that can happen in the Bellagio´s casino. Casinos are emotive venues in which large amounts of money can be won or lost. Frustrated gamblers can sometimes badly react to losing and resort to violence. If you sustain injuries at the Bellagio Resort Las Vegas as an innocent bystander due to a lack of protection from the casino´s security personnel, this would entitle you to claim Las Vegas resort injury compensation.
Escalator Accidents at the Bellagio
The Bellagio has a network of escalators both inside and outside the complex and, as Las Vegas regulars will tell you, they are not always in perfect working order. If an escalator stops abruptly, and you fall and hurt yourself, your solicitor will have an engineer inspect the service and maintenance records for the escalator. If it transpires that the escalator was not appropriately maintained, you should be able to make a compensation claim for an accident at the Bellagio in Las Vegas.
Injuries Sustained in the Bellagio Fitness Center
The Bellagio´s fitness center is a state-of-the-art facility with a host of personal fitness instructors ready to put guests through their paces. However, injuries at the Bellagio Resort Las Vegas can be sustained due to inappropriate “Power Plate” training schedules, faulty equipment and even due to a trip over a discarded towel or robe in the showers. If you have sustained injuries in the Bellagio´s fitness center, you should speak with a lawyer to confirm your eligibility for Las Vegas resort injury compensation.
Claiming Compensation after Returning Home from Your Vacation
Not all injuries at the Bellagio Resort Las Vegas are immediately apparent – this is one reason why people do not seek medical attention or make an accident report straight after an accident. If your vacation has ended and you have returned home, and you are subsequently diagnosed with an injury that may be attributable to a failure in the Bellagio´s duty of care your lawyer will be able to collect evidence of negligence on your behalf to support your compensation claim for an accident at the Bellagio in Las Vegas.
Injuries to Employees who Work at the Bellagio
It is not only guests and visitors to the resort who may be eligible to claim compensation for an accident at the Bellagio in Las Vegas. Employees, performers and trade visitors are also entitled to claim Las Vegas resort injury compensation if they sustain injuries in an accident. Even if you (as an employee) are receiving workers comp to cover your medical expenses and replace your lost income, you may still need the services of a lawyer if the resort does not pay all the compensation to which you are entitled or disputes the validity of your claim.
Time Limits for Claiming Las Vegas Resort Injury Compensation
Irrespective of whether you suffered an injury as a guest, a visitor or an employee of the Bellagio Hotel, you have two years from the date on which an injury is identified and diagnosed to claim compensation for an accident in the Bellagio Hotel Las Vegas. Different rules apply if your child sustains an injury at the Bellagio Resort in Las Vegas, and you should discuss this scenario with a lawyer.
