Parx Casino Accident injury Lawyers

Table of Contents

    Parx Casino is an entertainment facility located in Bristol, Pennsylvania. While the casino is outside of Philadelphia, it is still easily accessible by Philadelphians. Furthermore, many New Jersey residents living in the western parts of the state and not willing to make the trip out to Atlantic City are known to come visit this casino and horse racing track. The vast majority of visitors to Parx will have a safe and enjoyable day. However, as with any location where a large number of people gather, there is always the risk of serious bodily injury or wrongful death. In some cases the circumstances for injury may be created by fellow patrons of the casino. However in other cases, insufficient security, lighting, or preparations can increase the likelihood that a serious accident and injury will occur.

    The Reiff Law Firm represents patrons, guests and visitors who were seriously injured during their stay at a Pennsylvania or New Jersey casino. We are experienced Philadelphia personal injury attorneys with the knowledge and resources to aggressively & strategically pursue your claim. If you were injured in a slip and fall accident or became the victim of an assault or other criminal behavior due to inadequate security, contact us immediately to schedule a free consultation.

    Potential Reasons for Accidents at a Casino or Racetrack Facility

    Casinos and other gaming resorts offer the public an environment to gamble and relax with friends. Unfortunately, some casinos do not maintain their property adequately. The failure to perform sufficient maintenance on the property can expose individuals coming onto the property to an unreasonable risk of serious injury or death. Potential sources of a casino injury due to insufficient maintenance includes:

    • Malfunctioning escalator
    • Uneven stairs
    • Insufficient lighting in a hallway or stairwell
    • Cracked sidewalk
    • Improperly secured sign that can swing or fall onto casino guests
    • A defective or insufficiently maintained chair or stool that is uneven or can collapse
    • A wet or slippery spot due to a spilled drink that is not cleaned-up

    In other cases, the injury may not occur due to insufficient maintenance of the premises, but due to the disregard of other foreseeable risks. For instance, a casino that holds a special event with a famous musician but fails to account for the expected large crowds may have liability for injuries that occur due to overcrowding or packing too many guests into a confined space. Likewise, a casino that fails to provide adequate lighting in its parking facilities that results in an assault, robbery, rape or other criminal act can also have liability for its failure to address the defective condition.

    What Should I Do If I Am Injured at a Casino in Pennsylvania?

    If you have suffered a serious personal injury of any type, your first concern should be stabilizing your condition or injury and, if necessary, getting the medical help you need. Even if your injuries do not seem serious immediately, you should always make a report of the injury at the time it happened should your condition deteriorate. However, once you have sought treatment and made a report of your injury, you should contact an experienced personal injury lawyer who understands how casinos and their insurers approach issues of this type. Other important steps and points to keep in minds following a serious injury in a casino include:

    • Write down everything you remember about the accident as soon as possible. If you keep a regular diary, making notes of the accident now can help preserve your memories of the facts and circumstances.
    • Gather any evidence that is available and can be safely taken. Photos of defects in a sidewalk or step can be helpful as can an image of debris on the floor.
    • If witnesses are present, attempt to get their contact information.
    • Do not speak with the casino owner or their insurance company until you have secured representation. You may not understand the full extent of your injuries and damages and the other party may seek a quick settlement before you realize this. Write down the contact information of witnesses, as well as their detailed accounts of your injury accident.
    • Be sure an accident report is filed and that the report is accurate.

    ...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 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.
