A case recently settled in Clark County District Court and the ruling awarded a Palms customer $6.6 million after he was injured at the casino. The suit stated another man dove after a water bottle that had been thrown by a “Palms Girl” promoter and knocked him to the ground. He sustained multiple injuries as a result ranging from knee pain, neck pain and back pain to sleep apnea, depression and obesity. Evidence was given by medical experts, which substantiated his claims.
The Palms claims that such actions go against their policy and a staff meeting was held instructing employees not to throw items into a crowd. However, despite these claims the Palms had a goal post constructed in its sports book when the Palms girl, who was an independent contractor, threw the water bottle.
The $6.6 million dollars awarded against the Palms for negligent supervision included past and future medical expenses, past and future pain and suffering, past and future lost income, pre-judgment interest as well as legal fees and costs.
