Harrah’s Philadelphia Casino Accident Injury Lawyers

Table of Contents

    Harrah’s Philadelphia Casino is a casino and entertainment complex where patrons can play slots, participate in table games, and make wagers on harness racing. Despite the casino and entertainment complex’s name, the facility is actually located close to Philadelphia in nearby Chester, Pennsylvania. However, many Philadelphians still make the trip down to Harrah’s Casino despite the opening of the Sugar House Casino within Philadelphia in 2010.

    The vast majority of visits to the casino and racetrack occur without incident, injury, or anything other than the guest enjoying an exciting day out. However, any location where large numbers of people gather is subject to certain injury risks. The managers of the facility and event can manage and mitigate this risk by taking certain steps and measures. However, the failure to understand the circumstances present and take appropriate action can greatly increase the odds of a serious accident that produces life a life-altering injury or results in the individual’s wrongful death.

    Why Do Casino & Racetrack Injuries Occur?

    Accidents and injuries at a casino and racetrack can occur for a variety of reasons. However the most common reason for injury is probably the slip and fall or trip and fall type of injury. This mechanism of injury can occur in a broad array of circumstances including a cracked sidewalk, a crumbling step in a stairway, debris in a walkway, a bunched up or unsecured rug, or a slippery spot created by a spilled drink. Unfortunately, slip and fall injuries are far from the only type of accident that can occur at a casino. Other types of injuries that can occur at a casino or race track include:

    • An escalator that lurches ahead unexpectedly or has other mechanical issues.
    • A defective elevator that plummets to the ground.
    • A walkway or a pathway that has insufficient lighting.
    • A bar stool, slot machine chair, or other seat that is defective or not well-maintained.
    • A sign that is improperly secured that can fall on to guests standing below.
    • Running a casino and racetrack where large fluctuations in crowds and occupancy occur regularly also requires casinos to take steps to prevent subjecting guests to an unreasonable risk of injury.

    What Should I Do If I’ve Been Seriously Hurt at a Casino in Pennsylvania?

    Individuals who have unfortunately suffered a serious injury in a Pennsylvania casino should always first concern themselves with their health and getting the medical attention they need to prevent further injury and stabilize their condition. However, once you have taken care of your medical needs you should attempt to take several steps including:

    • Make a record of the events and circumstances that caused your injury as soon as possible. If you typically keep a journal, writing about your experience can preserve your memories and can be useful to establish the facts present.
    • If witnesses were present, try to get their name and other identifying information so that you can find them should their testimony be necessary at trial or at a later date.
    • If you can, take a photo of the defective condition that caused your injury.
    • Avoid taking to the casino owner, casino representative, or the casino’s insurance company. They may pressure you to take a settlement hastily that does not cover the full value of your damages.
    • If possible, filing an accident report can provide further evidence that an injury did occur on that date.

    Contacting an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible can preserve your legal rights and protect your ability to obtain compensation for your injuries and losses.

    ...I want to say that the Reiff Law Firm changed my entire life with handling of my legal case.

    As a former client, I want to say that the Reiff Law Firm changed my entire life with handling of my legal case. I was in a very serious automobile accident with severe injuries to neck and back areas. I contacted the law firm and asked what to do with the medical bills and how do I get the correct representation against the individual who rear-ended my car. In short, the firm took complete control of the case contacting my insurance company and asking for all the medical bills and legal matters be sent directly to them. I was able to get treatment from my doctor without worrying about the legal stuff. Furthermore, two years later the case was settled for a substantial amount of money. My life was much better due to the firm handling of my case. My attorneys at Reiff Law Firm are absolutely the best and I have recommended to my family friends. Thanks Reiff Law Firm.

    I’m very comfortable to say there’s no better in the city.

    Before meeting with Jeffrey Reiff and Bob Szostak from the Reiff law firm I’ve consulted with a few other injury attorneys in the Philadelphia region. Difference was, these guys know their stuff! I was absolutely blown away by how compassionate and welcome this law firm makes you feel. Once signed with them I never went a single week without staying in the loop with the progress and updates these guys have on your case. Working with them for some time turned what was an injury case, into a family! From calls and meetings, to just calling in to say “hi how’s everything going” I’ve never felt like a beat was skipped. I’d recommended the Reiff law firm 100%! I’m very comfortable to say there’s no better in the city. The awards they’ve earned over the years speaks for itself! I can never thank the Reiff law firm and Bob Szostak enough for everything they’ve done, their professionalism, compassion and all of their knowledge and experience! Highly rated! Best in the city! I look forward continuing our relationship in the future. Thanks again My Reiff family!

    ...without them I would have been lost.

    I can’t say enough great things about the Attorneys at the Reiff Law Firm. They made me feel at ease when I was going through a very difficult time in my life. Never being in a situation like this I was so unsure of where to start and how to go about the process. Justin gave me options where I thought I had none and explained everything in a way that I could understand. Justin and the team helped me arrange all of the treatment and therapy that I needed, without them I would have been lost. My attorney John went to bat for me like no one else could have, his knowledge and professionalism is unmatched. If anyone is ever in need of a team of attorneys the Reiff Law Firm is my ONLY recommendation.

    I was referred to the Reiff Law Firm by a friend who had previously been a client of the firm. My friend told me that the Reiff Firm had done an incredible job handling his case and treated him like family. My friend's recommendation was spot on. I am going to miss them now that my case is over. Attorney Reiff and Attorney Toczydlowski are excellent attorneys. They really care. They got me an INCREDIBLE RESULT. Most importantly they were there for me during some extremely dark and difficult times in my life. I highly recommend the Reiff Law Firm to anyone seeking the very best legal representation for injuries they suffered in an accident.
