Las Vegas Premises Liability/Slip and Fall Accident Attorney
The term “slip and fall" describes the type of injury that occurs on someone else’s property which is usually the result of a dangerous condition such as a defective surface or slippery substance. These injuries most commonly occur at resorts/casinos, restaurants, grocery stores, and shopping malls. The fact that you become injured from a slip, trip, or fall does not necessarily mean that someone else is legally responsible for your injury.
The owner or operator of a business has a legal duty to maintain the premises in a reasonably safe condition, or at least warn the public of a dangerous condition that they caused, knew about, or should have known about. If the owner failis to perform these functions, and you injure yourself on his property as a result, you may have a valid claim against the business. Premises liability claims encompass a variety of injuries including but not limited to:
- Injuries sustained in elevators;
- Injuries sustained outside on private or public land; and
- Injuries sustained during recreational activities
While the most common premises liability case is a slip and fall accident or a trip and fall accident, premises liability lawsuits may also stem from any unsafe or dangerous conditions, defect in the construction, or inadequate maintenance of the premises where an injury or accident occurs. These types of cases include:
- Injuries from toxic chemical exposure;
- Lead poisoning
- Defective lighting
- Failure to warn of hazardous conditions on the property
- Improperly installed or maintained equipment
- Dog bites and animal attacks
- Other dangerous conditions on the premises
