Injuries At Casinos Require Knowledge Of Tribal Law
If you have suffered an injury on the premises of an Indian casino, you may not know where to turn for help. Tribal personal injury laws are different than state personal injury laws, and you may feel as if you can’t find anybody to help you fight for the money damages to which you are entitled. In fact, only attorneys licensed to practice before the tribal courts can represent clients in these courts.
