Trip and Fall Accidents Attorney in Las Vegas

Our Attorneys Can Help You

In Las Vegas, property owners are responsible to keep their property in safe condition. If they do not, and some one is harmed by tripping and falling, then the property owner if responsible.

"Fall" injuries are grouped into two major categories: "slip and fall," and "trip and fall." The "slip" injuries involve slipping on a wet substance. "Trip and fall" cases involve tripping on a defect or hazardous condition in or on ground, or, lack of lighting or handrails.

Common 'trip and fall' cases involve:

  • Tears in carpeting
  • Loose 'strips' or nosing on carpeting
  • Holes in sidewalks or pavement
  • Lack of compliance with safety or ADA standards regarding staircase construction
  • Burnt out light bulbs in public areas (causing darkness in walkway areas)
  • Heaving slabs of concrete
  • Extension cords for electric equipment such as floor buffers
  • Carpet cleaners
  • Left out in walkway areas
  • Protruding objects in walkway areas (e.g. display pallets)
  • Lack of handrails

It is often our most vulnerable members of society who are the most at risk for serious trip and fall injury, i.e. elderly persons, and small children. Although typically in such cases the defense is that "you should be watching your feet when you walk," in fact, no one does this in real life (as it is more important, safety wise, to be looking at things that may be coming toward you, and it is expected that public walkways will be safe for walking); and, in fact, Nevada law has a special state-sanctioned jury instruction that says you are not legally required to stare at your feet when you walk.

Trip and fall cases usually involve some level of litigation. The insurance carriers know that attorneys who never go to court to try trip and fall cases, and make settlement offers accordingly. If you have a trip and fall case in Las Vegas, you need a law firm with a reputation for trying these cases when necessary.
