Slip & Fall/Premises Liability

Slip and Fall Accident Lawyer in Nevada

Slip and fall accidents can result in long term, or even permanent injuries that cause pain and suffering, and can result in lost time from work and mounting medical bills. While some injuries are simply due to human error, many slip and fall accidents are the result of the negligence of a property owner or government entity who is responsible for maintaining sidewalks, entryways and other common areas. Dangerous conditions that may indicate a valid premises liability case include:

Proving Premises Liability

Slip and fall accident cases generally fall under the category of premises liability in Nevada. In order to prove negligence in a premises liability case, victims must be able to establish a few crucial elements.

Defendant Responsibility

While property owners are responsible for maintaining the safety of their land or buildings, ownership is not necessarily required to achieve a successful claim. In some circumstances, managers and others who are in control of the premises can be held accountable for damages as well.

No Trespassing

In most cases, individuals who are trespassing are not covered under premises liability law. Wandering children, however, are typically an exception to this rule. In most other situations, the plaintiff must be either an invitee with access to areas open to the general public or a licensee with permission to access specific areas.

Failure to Maintain a Safe Environment

The most crucial step in slip and fall cases is generally being able to prove that the property owner or other responsible party was negligent in providing a safe environment. Sufficient grounds for compensation include things like safety code violations, inadequate maintenance, failure to warn, insufficient lighting, or failure to repair.

Additional Legal Options May Be Available

In many slip and fall cases, multiple factors play a role in the cause of the accident at hand. In these situations, a third party claim can sometimes be pursued. When a handrail malfunctions, a guardrail fails, or a contractor leaves a walkway obstructed, for instance, that party may be partially liable for your injuries as well. Our firm is dedicated to performing a thorough investigation of the events surrounding your slip and fall accident to ensure that all responsible parties are held liable.

I have not had the opportunity yet to thank you for always treating me with respect and kindness. Even though we have disagreed about elements of my injury and how it played out in 1994, you still treated me with respect and dignity. Therefore I just want to thank you for being so kind and respectful to me.
