Assaults and Attacks on Another's Property
Premises liability is an area of law that requires all premises, property and business owners
to ensure that they provide a safe environment. This means that they are
legally obligated to ensure that guests, visitors and others who are lawfully
permitted to be on their property are kept free from preventable harm.
While many may associate premises liability law with
slip and fall accidents and other similar situations, the law also applies to situations in which
victims are injured during third party alterations.
When premises owners fail to provide sufficient or adequate security, their
guests are subjected to increased risks of suffering injuries during assaults
or attacks committed by third parties. While these risks may differ depending
on the property or business involved, these types of encounters frequently
occur in the following places:
- Bars and night clubs
- Sport stadiums
- Apartment complexes
- Parking lots
- Amusement parks
- Hotels and motels
No matter the nature of the altercation involved, any victim who suffers
physical, emotional and/or financial harm as the result of a third party
assault or attack has the right to pursue legal actions against the premises
owner who failed to prevent or stop the event from occurring. The key
element in these cases, upon which a successful personal injury claim
will be hinged, is determining whether or not a premises owner failed
to uphold their duty.
Establishing Negligence and Liability
At Shook & Stone, our experienced
Las Vegas personal injury lawyers have refined our abilities to clearly and convincingly establish negligence
and liability. During these types of cases, our legal team works tirelessly
to explore whether or not a premises owner knew, or should have known,
that these types of third party assaults would occur. Certain places,
such as bars or nightclub, frequently play host to these types of events.
Additionally, police reports that may indicate high crime areas can also
be used to show that premises owners should have known about the potential
dangers guests and visitors faced. This can highlight the fact that a
premises owner's failure to provide sufficient security is a direct
breach, or failure, of their duty to keep visitors safe. Regardless of
what your personal case may entail , you can be sure that our passionate
attorneys leave no stone unturned in exploring the facts surrounding your
case and working toward holding premises owners liable.
