Hotel and casinos are “Target Defendants”. These types of defendants look to intimidate plaintiffs and their attorneys. A typical tactic is for a casino to seek a Motion to Dismiss any lawsuit. Moreover, another tactic is that a casino will try to “shift the blame” on the plaintiff or some other party.
Persistence and diligence pays off. The bottom line is that Casino/Hotel Defendants will only consider settlement when the claim of negligence can be proven. Moreover, Attorney for Hotel is keenly interested in how plaintiff answers written and oral questions (Deposition). Personal injury claimants who are focused and prepared do well in litigation. I personally take time to prepare my clients.
