A Louisiana man has filed a negligence complaint against a Mississippi Casino. The complaint states that the victim alleged he was a guest of the casino's owner when he slipped on a foreign substance while walking up the stairs in 2015. The slip caused the victim serious injuries and which resulted in mental and physical pain and suffering, incurred extensive medical expenses and disability. The victim states that the casino did not inspect the stairs promptly, clean up the substance on the floor and did not correct the dangerous condition.
Negligence laws are enforced to protect individuals from harm. Often these instances are due to carelessness, not intentional harm. Slips and falls can be dangerous and possibly result in disability or fatalities. The Consumer Product Safety Commission determined that floors and flooring materials contribute to more than 2 million fall injuries every year. Establishment owners have a responsibility to keep their facilities well maintained and provide a safe environment for patrons. Anyone injured due to negligence should seek counsel from an attorney who specializes in this field. Negligence cases need to be evaluated by a professional to hold the person or organization responsible for the injuries that they have caused.
