Dangerous Conditions

Suffering an injury on another person’s property can be frustrating, especially when it’s a result of the person’s negligent actions. You’re worrying about medical bills, dealing with the insurance company, and trying to heal—all because someone else failed to keep his property safe.

Premises liability claims can range from slip and fall accident to personal attacks, and property owners are responsible for injuries that occur as a result of an unsafe condition that could have been prevented. Such conditions can include:

  • Broken furniture
  • Damaged stairs or handrails
  • Falling objects
  • Lack of security
  • Poorly lit areas
  • Slippery or waxed floors
  • Uneven or unclear walkways
  • Unlabeled construction areas

Premises Liability Claim Misconceptions

Although you might think that most companies would rather prevent premises liability claims from going to court—and prevent the bad publicity that accompanies a lawsuit—typically, that’s not the circumstances. Many companies don’t want to settle quickly or fairly, in hopes that it will deter injured victims from making claims.

One of the biggest misconceptions we see from folks who have come to Las Vegas and they’re injured in, let’s say, one of the hotels, is that that hotel will want to quickly settle the case in order to avoid the bad publicity and bad goodwill that would be brought on if one of their guests were injured.

Find Out if You Have a Case

By law, owners must maintain a certain level of safety on their property and when they fail to do so, they should be held accountable. In premises liability claims, you must prove that:

  • the accident was caused on another person’s property as a result of his/her negligence
  • and the owner was aware of the unsafe conditions and could have prevented the situation.

What Should I Do?

Whether you slip because of standing water on the floor, or you fall down because of a hole in the ground, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries if you were injured on another person’s property.

Here are some tips to remember after your accident that can help build your claim:

  • Get medical treatment. Even if you don’t think you were injured or your injuries seem minor at the time, you should seek professional care and document your treatment.
  • Take pictures where the accident occurred. If you have access to a camera, you should photograph the area where you were injured and what caused your accident before anyone has the opportunity to improve the condition of the property.
  • Don’t sign anything or give a statement to the owner. The owner may try to use your words against you later, so it is important not to discuss anything with anyone except your premises liability lawyer.
