Las Vegas Slip and Fall Claims
Seek Compensation with Our Las Vegas Premises Liability Lawyers
Property owners and tenants in Las Vegas are required to maintain a safe
environment for individuals who legally visit their property, regardless
of if it is a home, school, business, or place of public gathering. A
recent Nevada ruling expanded
the liability of property owners even further by declaring that "the open and obvious nature of a
dangerous condition" does not relieve the landowner of liability.
As such, it is the responsibility of the property owner to maintain a reasonably
safe environment and adequately warn visitors of any potential danger,
even if such danger should seem obvious. Slip and fall claims are some
of the most common, yet serious types of
personal injuries and should not be ignored or taken lightly.

How can property owners be held liable for injuries on their property?
Accidents can happen anytime and in any location, but it is the responsibility
of a property owner or tenant to maintain a reasonable level of safety
for individuals who lawfully enter their premises. If an injury occurs
because of dangerous conditions, or other negligent factors, the owner
of the property assumes liability and should be held accountable. Our
Las Vegas personal injury lawyers can fight to help you receive compensation
for your injuries.
Common causes of slip and fall accidents on unsafe property include, but
are not limited to:
- Wet floors
- Icy walkways or driveways
- Poor lighting
- Broken or uneven flooring
- Wobbly chairs or tables
- Steep or narrow stairways
- Inadequate handrails
Some other, more serious incidents that can cause injury due to a property
owner's negligence include:
- Animal attacks
- Fire or gas explosions
- Drowning in uncovered or unlocked pools
- Physical assault-due to inadequate security
