Under guidelines set forth by the U.S. government, each Native American tribe maintains legal sovereignty over civil actions that happen on tribal lands. As a result, Indian casinos are theoretically immune from civil lawsuits, including personal injury lawsuits.

However, under the Tribal-State Gaming Compact, Indian casinos in California agreed to a limited waiver of tribal immunity for personal injury (tort actions). This opens the door to sue casinos and their affiliated tribes for slip-and-falls and other bodily injury.

Northern California is home to a number of casinos that attract thousands of visitors on an annual basis. Thunder Valley and other gambling casinos are doing brisk business and busing in patrons from all over. Many have their own hotels, golf courses, pools and other amenities that add to the fun — and the potential for injuries.The experienced personal injury lawyers of Guenard & Bozarth will pursue actions against any casino property:
  • Thunder Valley Casino Resort
  • Red Hawk Casino
  • Jackson Rancheria Casino & Hotel
  • Cache Creek Casino Resort
  • Tachi Palace Hotel & Casino
  • River Rock Casino Resort
  • Eagle Mountain Casino
  • Black Oak Casino Resort
  • Colusa Casino Resort
We have obtained compensation for all manner of casino injuries, including slip-and-falls on stairs or slippery floors, accidents caused by construction hazards, electric shock from slot machines, swimming pool injuries, shower falls and other circumstances.Our role is to demonstrate the negligence that led to the incident, to document your injuries and losses, and to represent you in legal proceedings. Injury claims are handled under tribal jurisdiction, and it is important that your attorney understand their rules. For example, there is a statute of limitations of just six months to file your claim. These cases are typically resolved in arbitration rather than a court system, and we come prepared to present a legally sound argument to the arbitrator.

Guenard & Bozarth gets results in tough cases, and superior results where other firms take quick settlements. Call our Elk Grove or Sacramento offices at 916-226-9098 or contact us online. We offer a free consultation for injuries in casinos and take cases on a contingency fee.

Never in my life did I think I would recommend an attorney. Somehow God sent this angel of an attorney to assist me in my personal injury lawsuit. I was told by lawyers in Bakersfield that my lawsuit was frivolous because there was money in it.

I live in Elk Grove where we don’t always have a lot of choices. Lawyers are one area where we have few good choices. I wanted to work with a local law firm after my motorcycle accident, and I chose Glenn Guenard and Ross Bozarth.

My daughter was involved in an automobile accident in an intersection on her 17th birthday. The other person said it was her fault and my daughter said her light was green. I am not the sort of person who sues but my insurance
