Maryland Live! Casino Lawsuits
Posted on behalf of Goldberg Finnegan, LLC on May 14, 2013 in Negligence
Our firm handles injury claims and lawsuits against Maryland Live! Casino which is located in Arundel Mills, in Hanover Maryland. The casino recently opened its doors to the public, and there will surely be a lot of legal claims against Maryland Live. This is because safety policies and procedures have not been in place for any significant period of time. Claims related to card dealer mistakes and improper casino payments are also likely because Maryland Live card dealers are not experienced card dealers for the most part, and are still learning their craft.
Claims against the casino can involve personal injuries that occur at the casino (or the Maryland Live parking lots), and other claims involving gambling losses and the casino's failure to pay out on money owed. If you are injured at a Maryland Casino it is important to talk to an attorney that understands potential legal issues involved.
One issue to consider is whether an injury or death claim against a Maryland Casino such as Maryland Live! is actually a claim against the State of Maryland. The Casino is regulated by the State and receives State Funding, but it is run by private investors, and is likely owned by "PPE Casino Resorts Maryland, LLC" which is located in Baltimore, Maryland. Nobody knows the answer to this question yet because it has not been litigated.
To be safe, it is a good idea to give notice to the State of Maryland pursuant to the State Tort Claims Act and also to give notice to the appropriate local government pursuant to the Local Government Tort Claims Act. According to the State Department of Assessment and Taxation Website, there are at least 3 legal entities with the name Maryland Live in it: "Maryland Live" "Maryland Live! Casino" "Maryland Live Holdings, LLC" and "Maryland Live Holdings Equity Investor, LLC"
