The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / News / Wapner Newman sues Parx Casino for security negligence

Wapner Newman sues Parx Casino for security negligence

Publish Date: 10/29/2022
Fact checked by: Mike Goodpaster

Philadelphia personal injury firm Wapner Newman has commenced litigation against Parx Casino on behalf of a casino’s guest. The 71-year-old man, the lawsuit alleged, was violently assaulted and robbed on October 1, 2022, around 2:30 in the morning.

According to the court filing, the assault was committed on the property of Parx Casino by another Parx Casino customer. Based on the information provided, the casino’s security staff and surveillance systems were ineffective at protecting and preventing the attack. They didn’t do enough to stop it while it was happening and did not respond in a timely manner following the attack.

According to Robert Miller, the managing partner of Wappner Newman, the casino operator is obligated to protect its patrons. This could be done by establishing a comprehensive security program that monitors and detects criminal activity.

Miller said that his firm would pursue justice for the attack’s victim and the Parx Casino’s future patrons. He noted that the residents of the surrounding counties should not be subjected to the same level of violence.

According to Julianna Burdo, a partner at Wapner Newman, their client, who was attacked at the Parx Casino, had expected the facility to provide him with a safe environment. However, it did not meet that standard.

“Our client trusted that Parx would provide him with a safe place to gamble, and to come and go in a safe manner. Parx utterly failed to meet this reasonable expectation,” Burdo said. “Security personnel at Parx were not patrolling this parking lot and camera surveillance was not being properly monitored, or it was simply ignored.”

Parx Casino also has an ongoing lawsuit against gaming company Pace-O-Matic (POM), with the latter responding to the ongoing legal battle earlier this week.

POM issued a statement saying that the lawsuit filed by Greenwood Gaming and Parx Casino against the operators of legal skill games in Pennsylvania is meritless and attacks the small businesses that rely on their revenue from these games.

“Parx Casino is attempting to shield its efforts, through various consultants, and use the levers of government to harm legal skill games, and in particular POM’s Pennsylvania Skill games,” POM added in the statement.
