On August 30, 2021, Judy Wong and William S. Wong (collectively, “Plaintiffs”), represented by William Sze Wong, filed a personal injury lawsuit against Las Vegas Sands Corp., Venetian Casino Resort, LLC, Las Vegas Sands, LLC and Ors. (collectively, “Defendants''). Plaintiffs filed suit seeking general and special damages along with attorney’s fees for the alleged negligent act of Defendants. This complaint was filed in the United States District Court in the Eastern District of California with Judges Kimberly J. Mueller and Kendall J. Newman presiding.
In the complaint the plaintiffs alleged that, “On or about September 2, 2019, Plaintiff, Judy Wong, was legally and lawfully upon Defendants’ premises, as a customer, business invitee, and patron when Plaintiff slipped on a polished wet marble floor on her way to the reception area to check-out after a night stay and fell on the wet polished marble floor’ with her full body weight on the back of her head causing substantial injuries. the fall suffered by Plaintiff and the injuries resulting therefrom were caused solely and proximately by the negligence of Defendants and without any negligence of Plaintiff contributing thereto.”
The plaintiffs further alleged that, “The Defendants reasonably should have had, actual knowledge and notice of said dangerous condition, and that the Defendants in the exercise of its duty of care should have had such knowledge and notice, yet failed to warn the Plaintiff of its existence of the danger, or fail to take reasonable action to protect the Plaintiff once they knew of the dangerous condition. As a result of the Defendants’ negligence Plaintiff suffered injuries. Said injuries caused Plaintiff to suffer extreme physical pain and suffering, and severe emotional distress, all to her damage in the amount in excess of $3,000,000.”
The plaintiffs also alleged that, “William S. Wong has suffered, and continues to suffer, the loss of consortium and companionship as a result of the injury to Plaintiff William S. Wong’s wife. The loss of consortium and companionship includes, but is not limited to, the physical, psychological, and emotional pain that results when the other spouse is injured and can no longer provide the love, affection, companionship, comfort, and sexual relations concomitant with normal married life, and the sadness, shock and anguish of seeing a spouse suffering from all kinds of physical and emotional injury as a direct and proximate result of Defendants’ negligence.”
There are two claims for relief laid down by the plaintiffs. The first claim deals with negligence as the Defendants due to Defendants’ duty to maintain its premises in a reasonably safe condition for the general public. The second claim deals with loss of consortium and companionship.
In the prayer for relief, Plaintiffs have requested the court for general damages, past and future, in a sum in excess of Three Million Dollars ($3,000,000.00). Plaintiffs also requested the court for special damages for medical care and treatment, and for future medical care and treatment and incidental expenses for a sum in excess of Two Hundred Thousand Dollars ($200,000.00) for pain and suffering and for extreme emotional distress as a result of loss of consortium and companionship along with such other relief as the Court may deem just and equitable.
