Get help finding the Right Premises Liability Lawyer for your case
Injuries inside Indian Casinos are as common and similar as accidents that can occur in other businesses. The most common claims inside Indian Casinos are premises liability claims. The most common type of premises liability cases are: slip and falls, which can result in minor to severe injuries. Often times these injuries can result in doctors visits, physical therapy and sometimes hospitalization. Although injuries can be severe, recovering your damages from Indian Casino Injuries through the law can be difficult, since most Indian Casinos sit on Indian reservations.
Its common for people to believe that law treats Indian Casino related injuries similarly as would any other injury inside a business, however California law does not apply, because Indian reservations have their own tribal laws and courts where their cases are heard. Often times dealing with tribal entities is more difficult than state courts because there are special, federal rules that apply strictly to tribal communities and litigation occurs not Superior Courts, but Tribal Courts. Each tribe is a sovereign nation with different tribal procedures to be followed in order to recover damages. One of the most important requirements to note is that the victim is obligated to file a claim with the casino where the accident took place and the claim must be filed within the statute of limitations. Failing to file a claim before the statute of limitations runs out can be a complete bar to recovery.
Finding an injury lawyer to represent you in an Indian Casino Injury Case can be difficult. The number of California Attorneys who have experience practicing in Tribal Courts is very low, in comparison to the number of attorneys with California Superior Courts experience.
Working with a Personal Injury Lawyer immediately after your injury can prevent you from overlooking the statute of limitations to a claim. Each Indian reservation has unique laws and procedures that an injury lawyer can research to successfully handle your case. While most accidents inside Indian Casinos are common, the Tribal Courts process adds complexity a victims injury claim. Accidents involving gambling equipment not properly setup can also be disputed through hiring a lawyer.
The process of making a claim is essential to having a case against an Indian Casino. An untimely and improperly submitted Indian Casino Injury Claim can result in rejection of your claim from the Indian Casino. An injury attorney can prevent your claim from being rejected and if rejected the attorney can submit an appeal.
