Property owners have a responsibility to ensure their premises are safe and free from hazards and defects that could cause visitors harm. In Las Vegas, many incidents occur at resorts and casinos.  Malls, stores, restaurants, and parking lots are other locations where incidents are common.  Premise liability refers to accidents or injuries that occur due to unsafe conditions on another person’s property, and can include the following:

  • Slip, trip and falls
  • Restaurant accidents
  • Grocery and Retail Store Accidents
  • Food Poisoning
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Water Park and Amusement Park accidents
  • Playground and School accidents
  • Daycare accidents
  • Nightclub accidents
  • Construction site accidents
  • Insufficient or abusive Security
  • Broken glass
  • Faulty store displays
  • Elevator accidents
  • Snow and ice injuries
  • Sprinkler overspray

Slip & Fall and Trip & Fall

Slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall events are extremely common.

What is a slip-and-fall or trip and fall accident? Just as it sounds, a slip and fall occurs when you slip on something on the floor, then fall and injure yourself. Likewise, a trip and fall occurs when you trip over a hidden or unexpected object and injure yourself.

Slip/Trip and-fall accidents can occur from problems such as water, ice, grease or food on a walking surface. They can also occur from a poorly maintained walking surface, including broken floorboards or crumbling steps, and in poorly lit areas.

If you are injured in a slip/trip-and-fall accident, you may be entitled to compensation for:

  • Past, current and future medical bills associated with the slip/trip-and-fall injury
  • Lost wages if you were unable to work while recovering from the injury
  • Pain and suffering
  • Property that was damaged (such as broken glasses) during the accident
