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:
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.
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.
