Las Vegas has millions of tourists visiting year-round wanting to gamble at the casinos, party at the clubs, and stay at some of the world’s best-known hotels. In 2018, an estimated 40 million tourists visited Las Vegas. Moreover, the Las Vegas Strip is one of the largest tourist spots in the entire state, with its world-renowned entertainment, casinos, hotels, bars, and everything in between.
With such a large number of visitors, accidents are bound to happen on the Las Vegas strip. Whether you’re a local or a tourist, a Las Vegas personal injury lawyer can help you if you have been injured in an accident.

With 46 percent of visitors traveling by flight to Las Vegas and the Las Vegas Strip having an estimated 35,000 hotel rooms, a tourist will likely be riding a shuttle from the airport to his or her hotel. The strip also has free shuttles to transport tourists to casinos, hotels, and bars. With so much traffic on the Las Vegas strip, driver and pedestrian accidents are a common occurrence and can be quite severe.
The Las Vegas Strip is 4.2 miles long and is lined with bars, clubs, and restaurants around every corner. Tourists are often eating and drinking, and along with that comes the potential for spills and slip and fall injuries. Depending on the location of the fall, the cause of the fall, and whether the premises owner knew about the property defect, a claim or lawsuit could result.
The Las Vegas strip’s wide array of entertainment (and the sheer length of the strip) make taxi services a popular form of transportation between venues – especially when shuttles are not available. Taxi accidents are common in congested and popular areas of the strip. As a passenger or pedestrian, you may be a victim of an inattentive taxi driver.
The strip is equipped with valet parking for many establishments. It is a common service, but along with the service exists the possibility of negligence on the part of valet staff. An employee not paying attention may hit another vehicle or pedestrian if he or she is not paying proper attention. If you have been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence, an experienced Las Vegas personal injury attorney will work to get you compensated.
The Las Vegas Strip is a place to enjoy yourself and have a good time, but it is also a place known for accidents.
