Personal injury in Vegas often results from being injured in one of the many casinos in the area. Common types of casino injuries include:
- Slip and fall accidents: one of the most common accidents on casino grounds is slipping and falling due to unsafe conditions such as tripping hazards or unmarked slippery floors.

- Injury or assault by another casino patron: assault or physical attack by another patron on or around casino grounds.
- Pedestrian accidents on casino property: pedestrians hit by racing taxis, other pedestrians or casino vehicles.
- Injury or accidents inside casino hotel rooms or in common areas: injury in hotel room, bathroom, spa, pool, bedroom, in the hallway or elevator.
