Determining Liability for a Slip-and-Fall Accident


If you have been injured on someone else’s property, you may be wondering who should be held responsible for your medical bills and other expenses. You must determine if the incident was purely an accident that no one could have prevented, or if your injuries resulted from a hazardous condition. If the accident was directly related to someone’s negligence, you may be able to pursue compensation for the damages you have suffered.

There are a number of dangerous conditions that property owners are legally obligated to rectify. When a hazardous condition on the property cannot be repaired immediately, it is the property owner’s responsibility to post warning signs and to notify visitors about those dangers. For example, broken staircases can lead to serious injury accidents and they must be repaired as soon as is reasonably possible. When a property owner is notified of the dangerous condition and fails to mark the area as dangerous, anyone hurt there may hold the property owner liable for the accident by filing a premises liability claim.

Valid Las Vegas premises liability claims often involve a failure to post signs near a slippery floor, criminal activity that could have been prevented by an increase in security and cracks in a walkway that should have been repaired. There are many types of dangerous conditions that property owners are obligated to fix.

Negligent property owners may be held liable for losses such as medical bills, past and future suffering, therapy fees and time away from work. The experienced Nevada personal injury attorneys at Shook & Stone have a long history of successfully handling premises liability claims on behalf of injured victims.
