Calder Casino Accident Lawyer

Calder Casino Accident LawyerCalder Casino is located in Miami Gardens, Florida. The 10,000-square-foot casino opened its doors in 2010, offering residents and visitors of Miami-Dade County 1,100 slot machines, a player’s club, a VIP lounge, and bars and restaurants. While the casino is still relatively new, it has not stopped from innovating and expanding. In May 2018, the Backyard Casino opened just outside Calder Casino. It is the area’s largest smoking friendly open-air casino. While many people enjoy Calder Casino for a night out or a day off from work, there is always a risk of accidents.

Common Casino Accidents

Guests of Calder Casino and of other gambling and entertainment venues in South Florida face a number of risks. While the premises should be safe for them, it is not uncommon for casino management and employers to fall behind on their responsibilities. When casino employers are negligent, guests are at risk for:

  • Slip and Falls: Guests at casinos may slip and fall or trip and fall because of spilled liquids, recently mopped or waxes floors, loose or torn carpet, clutter on the floor, and poorly lit walkways and stairs. Whether a guest is on the casino floor, in a hotel area, in a restaurant, or in the parking lot, their path should be clear and safe. Anyone who is injured in a fall at a casino should speak with an accident lawyer for Calder Casino.

  • Unsafe Conditions: Slip or trip and falls may be the most common premises liability claim, however, they are not the only way guests may be hurt at a casino. Visitors to Calder Casino may be hurt if they are in a vehicle accident, struck by an object inside the facility, or ingest contaminated food or beverages. If you are injured in any type of accident at Calder Casino, and you believe it was because of a hazard on the property, contact us right away.

  • Inadequate Security & Crime: Casinos are often a target for crime, including theft, robbery, assault, and sexual assault. In fact, Calder Casino made the news in 2011 for an armed robbery executed by five individuals. The robbery, which involved a Calder employee, lead to the death of a Brinks guard. This tragic offense is an example of the importance of thorough casino security. Incidents like this and more minor offenses can be extremely dangerous to guests, both financially and physically. Guests who are injured in a crime at Calder Casino should speak with an accident attorney for Calder Casino about whether the casino had adequate security. There may be evidence that the crime could have been prevented had there been better security measures, such as more guards or surveillance cameras.

  • Excessive Force by Security: While some casinos lack adequate security, others have overzealous security guards. If a guest is accused of causing trouble, cheating, or becoming inebriated, a security guard or member of management may use excessive physical force and cause that victim harm. When a member of the casino’s security personnel harms a guest, that individual should speak with a lawyer right away.

Mr Nick Gerson has been extremely attentive (even on weekends!) and has been more than willing to take time to answer all my questions.

I am more than pleased to recommend you seek him as your attorney. You will not regret you did!! G.I.B.
Mr. Gerson and all his team gave to my case the careful and professional attention it needed from the beginning to end. Unfortunately, a year ago I was involved in a car accident on the victim side. I have appreciation for the good service that was given to me and my situation. Thanks. Cales & Mr. Hyde (Carlos Andrés García Jiménez), Google User
