After A Slip-And-Fall Accident
Under Nevada law, property owners are responsible for maintaining and securing their property in a reasonably safe condition. When a property owner fails to maintain their property in a reasonably safe condition, the property owner is responsible for notifying occupants and persons on the property of any dangerous condition that exists.
Premises liability exists when a person is injured as a result of an owner failing to maintain the property in a reasonably safe condition or failing to properly notify occupants of a dangerous condition that exists on the property.
Slip-and-fall injuries often occur when a dangerous condition exists and the owner fails to fix the problem or when the property owner fails to warn others about the danger. Our attorneys have had success at pursuing property owners for clients injured as a result of the owner’s negligence.

Premises Liability And Negligent Security
Property owners, including hotels, casinos and apartment complexes are also responsible for providing a secure property for those visiting or living on the property. Negligent security measures can result in assaults that could have been avoided provided the property owner had adequate security.
In addition, the failure of the property owner to have and maintain adequate lighting, working security cameras, effective locks and/or other measures including performing background checks on security personnel, which can be used to protect the safety of guests and occupants, will provide evidence that the property owner was negligent for any such injuries caused to you. When these safety measures are overlooked, innocent people, such as yourself, can be injured.
What To Do If You Are Involved In An Accident:
- Check to ensure the drivers/passengers/pedestrians are not injured;
- Call 911 for emergency medical attention;
- If you do not require immediate medical treatment/assistance, remain at the scene of the accident and do not leave until police arrive. A police report will help verify that another party was negligent — not you.
- Gather the other party’s contact information including their insurer’s name.
