Woman Awarded $775K After Tripping At Vegas Casino

July 30, 2013

A woman who tripped on a speed bump and injured her shoulder at a U.S. casino has been awarded $775,000.

The Nevada Supreme Court upheld the judgment against Harrah’s casino, the Las Vegas Sun reported.

Alice Swanson has been seeking compensation since 2007, when she tripped and fell.

She said the bump was too high, and a jury agreed.

Jurors decided the casino had failed to exercise reasonable care. They awarded Swanson $375,000 for past pain and suffering and $400,000 for future pain and suffering.

Harrah’s had appealed, saying the jury verdict should be overturned because of a lack of evidence.

    I don't know if I would want to sue a Vegas casino. She could end up having another unfortunate "accident".
