Unemployed punter sues Crown Casino after breaking his neck when he slipped on a puddle of vomit after a gambling session Alisha Rouse, Daily Mail Australia · April 29, 2020 at 7:42 am A man who suffered life-changing injuries after slipping on someone else’s vomit at a Crown Casino is suing the multi-billion dollar company for negligence. Michael Stephenson had enjoyed a night of gambling at the casino on Melbourne’s Southbank when he slipped and broke his neck. The incident could now cost the casino hundreds of thousands of dollars, with a lawyer claiming the casino should have mopped up the vomit. Crown Casino is owned by billionaire businessman James Packer. Mr Stephenson said he now suffers with depression and anxiety following the fall in December 2017, after the neck brake and an injury to his right hip left him with an abnormal gait.
