Las Vegas Slip and Fall Statistics

They say what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. But that’s not true for slip and fall accidents that are quite common in Sin City. Blame the city’s frequently changing weather for them, its high foot traffic, or lack of safety protocols in hotels, casinos, or other public spaces, but when you encounter a slip and fall accident in Vegas, you will likely bring the effects back home. And this may include hefty medical bills, along with pain and injuries. While we can’t help you with the pain, we can certainly offer assistance in securing monetary compensation for your treatment, physical and emotional suffering, and lost wages due to a slip and fall accident.

Before we tell you how you can reach us, here’s a quick overview of some Las Vegas slip and fall statistics to help you realize how common these accidents are and the potential injuries or effects they may cause.
