Attorneys handling claims against casinos must be licensed to practice before tribal courts. These tribal personal injury laws are different than state personal injury laws, and attorneys practicing in tribal court must use in-depth knowledge of tribal court laws and procedures to effectively represent clients.
At Kennedy, Johnson, Schwab & Roberge, L.L.C., we have the resources necessary to represent clients in tribal courts. Our clients include people who were injured at casinos in Connecticut. They are people who have experienced a slip-and-fall accident, including slipping on standing water, in a hallway or in a stairway. They also include people who have been injured when casino security was inadequate to prevent an assault by another visitor or staff.
Our law firm also handles dramshop liability cases. In Connecticut, dramshop liability laws hold bartenders, restaurant owners, liquor store owners and homeowners accountable for serving someone who was already intoxicated. They also hold parties accountable for serving minors who later went on to cause a drunk driving accident.
To achieve favorable results for our clients, we draw on a wealth of experience, knowledge and skill. Together our New Haven personal injury attorneys have more than 150 years’ combined experience representing injured people who have experienced many different types of injuries. These include traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and burns. We also represent the surviving families of people killed in casino accidents by filing wrongful death lawsuits.
At Kennedy, Johnson, Schwab & Roberge, L.L.C., we handle all Tribal Court Claims cases on a contingency fee basis. This means that we do not get paid unless and until you receive a settlement or a jury award.
