Fire at the Golden Nugget Causes Critical Injuries

A man was seriously injured in a fire at the Golden Nugget. According to a news report in The Associated Press, the building fire occurred on the 22nd floor of the Golden Nugget in downtown Las Vegas. Officials say the 22nd floor is one of many that are currently under construction. It is unclear if the victim was a worker or a guest. He was found unconscious and has been listed in critical condition. Numerous people were evacuated from nearby floors and no one else was hurt. Investigators have not ruled out arson as a possible cause of the fire.

According to the report, the fire did not spread more because of the sprinkler system. Not all building fires are so easily contained. Anytime there is a fire in a place of business, it must be determined if the building was constructed to code and if injuries were suffered because of the negligence of the building owner or building management. Investigators must also consider faulty wiring, the negligence of visitors to the building, and even the potential for an arsonist to be involved.

Anyone who is injured in a building fire would be well advised to discuss his or her legal rights and options with an experienced Las Vegas personal injury attorney. Burn injuries and smoke inhalation injuries can cause permanent damage. Victims of these types of injuries may pursue financial compensation for damages including medical bills, lost wages, cost of hospitalization, and pain and suffering.
