What if I slip and fall at Mohegan Sun or Foxwoods Casino?

slip and fall at Mohegan Sun or Foxwoods Casino

You may have heard that both of Connecticut’s two casinos, Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods, have their own independent court systems. So what happens if you are injured at the casino? Mostly likely, your case will need to be brought in the respective tribal courts at Mohegan Sun or Foxwoods. Only personal injury attorneys licensed in the tribal courts may bring such claims. Attorney James Harrington of Polito and Harrington is licensed in both the Mohegan Tribal Court and Mashantucket Tribal Court at Foxwoods. If you are injured at either casino, keep the following in mind: 

  1. Report your injury to casino officials as soon as possible. Video in many slip and fall cases is critical. Once reported video footage will be preserved in most cases, however if not reported, the video is often destroyed within days of an injury.
  2. Do not hesitate to take action: Both Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods have much shorter statute of limitations than state courts and thus time is of the essence.
  3. It is critical to determine who the proper defendant is. Although Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods are often the defendants, there are hundreds of non-tribal entities operating inside of the casino. It is imperative that you speak with a tribal attorney familiar with identifying these entities as soon as possible.
