A woman has sued Louisiana A-1 Gaming and the Boomtown Belle Casino and their insurer for injuries sustained after a slip-and-fall accident at a Louisiana casino. According to the plaintiff's allegations, she went to a buffet-style dinner at the facility in April of 2013. There was a "caution wet floor" sign by the table at which she was seated but she left the table multiple times and didn't have any trouble.
In Louisiana, property owners have certain legal obligations that must be met. One of these obligations is to maintain the safety of their property for others. If the property is not maintained accordingly and an individual is injured while on the property, the property owner may owe them compensation in the form of personal injury damages to assist them in recovering from their injuries.
