Sugar House Casino Accident Injury Lawyers

Table of Contents

    Philadelphia hasn’t always been the home of casinos, never mind multiple options for those looking to be entertained by gambling and other activities. However, since 2010 the Sugar House Casino has provided one gambling destination in southeastern Pennsylvania. The Sugar House Casino is a gambling and entertainment destination located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The casino is located along the Delaware River in Philadelphia’s Fishtown neighborhood. The casino is so-named because it occupies the site of the former Jack Frost sugar refinery.

    The Sugar House Casino draws hundreds of thousands of visitors each and every year. For the vast majority of these visitors, their trip is completed without issue or injury. However, at any location where large numbers of people gather, there is the potential for injury. This injury risk can be exacerbated if patrons and casino guests act in an unsafe or unruly manner. Furthermore, the risk of injury can also be exacerbated when an entertainment facility fails to plan adequately for the expected crowds, does not perform required maintenance, or otherwise does not protect its guests from an unreasonable risk of bodily injury or death.

    Potential Reasons for Accidents at a Casino Entertainment Complex

    While casinos offer a fun, typically safe, and enjoyable location for friends and family members to spend time and gamble, the casino facility owes its guests certain obligations. Chief among those obligations is to avoid subjecting guests to defective conditions by timely addressing these dangerous issues by making a repair or, at minimum, providing guests with a warning so that they can avoid the risk.

    Casinos and all facilities typically endeavor to protect their guests from known risks on the premises. However, in certain cases the actions of a fellow patron can make the risk more pronounced and more likely to cause serious injury. In other circumstances, a lapse in the casino’s oversight of the facility can lead to significant and life-altering injury or death. Potential risks can include problems created due to insufficient maintenance.

    For instance, a casino may fail to address a defective or malfunctioning escalator. The lurching on the escalator caused by a lack of maintenance or a defect can make it more likely the riders will fall or trip. In other circumstances the problem may involve:

    • A stairwell or passageway that has insufficient lighting. The lack of lighting can increase the likelihood of a slip and fall accident.
    • A parking area that is not guarded or well lit. Aside from an increased fall risk, an unsecured space of this type may fail to prevent a violent attack or some other crime from being committed against a guest.
    • A cracked sidewalk or pathway can also increase the risk of a trip and fall accident.
    • A defective chair or stool can collapse causing the guest to fall to the ground.

    A sign that is not properly secured can fall from many feet in the air. If the sign strikes patrons standing below, injuries can be catastrophic.
    Unfortunately, a lack of needed maintenance isn’t the only reason that can increase the odds of a personal injury event at a casino. A casino that fails to correctly anticipate crowd levels for an event and take necessary precautions can significantly increase the odds of an injury. For instance, if a famous celebrity is known to be making a casino-sponsored appearance, but the facility takes no steps to manage the increased crowds the risk of injury increases dramatically.

    ...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.
