When residents in Lake County, Indiana, go to casinos, they expect to risk their money. What they do not expect to risk is their safety. Unfortunately, for one man in another state, his luck ran out when he fell down a flight of stairs at a casino. He is now suing the establishment for premises liability.
The accident occurred as the man was walking down a flight of stairs at the casino. The man claims that he fell because the stairway treads were not properly maintained. He accuses the casino of premise liability, negligence and negligence per se, in part for not properly warning patrons about the hazardous conditions and unsafe stairway. He is seeking compensation for his medical expenses, physical pain, suffering and other damages he incurred as a result of the fall.
