Biloxi & Gulfport Casino Injury Attorney
The casino and gaming industry has transformed the Biloxi-Gulfport region over the past 25 years, revitalizing our tourism industry and bringing huge casinos and hotels to our front steps. From the Golden Nugget to the Hard Rock Hotel to Harrah’s, Gulf Coast casinos are part of a multi-billion dollar local industry that is here to stay. What you might not know is that local casinos are the locations of hundreds of injuries each year, many of which are preventable. At the Law Offices of Judy Guice, P.A., we help victims of casino injuries go up against the powerful casinos to get the recovery they are owed.

Slip-and-Falls and Other Casino Injuries
Casino owners have a legal responsibility under Mississippi state law to prevent accidents from occurring on the casino property. Slip and fall accidents are common occurrences on casino property, given the amount of constant activity, physical objects, and people present. While such accidents may be inevitable, casinos profit greatly from inviting all of this activity, and the law places a high responsibility on casinos to monitor the property for dangerous conditions that could lead to injury. This includes dangerous conditions in the casino itself, a pool area, a restaurant, a dance floor, a parking lot, and everywhere else owned or maintained by the casino. When the casinos fail to take proper precaution in preventing injuries, an injured victim can pursue a negligence claim against the casino for the full range of his or her injuries.
Slip-and-fall injuries are not the only types of injuries that may occur in a casino. Food-borne illnesses are often spread through hotels and casinos, and bedbug infestations and water-borne illnesses are dangers a guest might encounter. Furthermore, injuries can be suffered due to faulty mechanical operations, whether from casino machines, escalators and elevators, and so on. The painful and costly effects of such injuries can persist for years. At the Law Offices of Judy Guice, P.A., we represent victims across Mississippi in bringing claims against the casinos to recover for the costs of a victim’s medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, and other damages.
Casinos Have a Duty to Prevent Criminal and Violent Acts
In addition to being a place where accidents occur, casinos are far too often places where violence and other criminal acts occur. Such acts can include:
- Assault and battery
- Sexual assault
- Theft and robbery from hotel rooms, vehicles, and persons
- Property damage
- Extortion and intimidation
The owners and operators of casinos are required to provide adequate security to prevent and stop criminal acts, and as a guest of the casino (whether or not you are an overnight guest), you are owed a high legal duty under the law. If a casino fails to provide such adequate security – whether through insufficient or negligent staff, improper security or alarm systems, or through other means – we can bring a negligent security claim against the casino on your behalf.
