An injury from a fall is a type of personal injury case – that is, a non-criminal case where a victim seeks compensation for injury caused by another party. You might also see it referred to as premises liability. Any situation where someone slips or falls on another person’s property can be thought of as slip and fall – whether it happens at a store, a government office or a friend’s house.
When you suffer an injury from slipping or falling on someone else’s property, it can be difficult to receive compensation for your treatment and recovery time. However, if the slip was the result of poor maintenance practices such as icy sidewalks, overcrowded aisles or wet floors, you may be entitled to compensation. You just need a premises liability lawyer to help you prove that the slip was caused by the property owner not taking proper care to prevent such slips ahead of time.
As your premises injury attorney, we’ll help you build a case by collecting statements about and taking photographs of the area where the incident occurred. We’ll also look at medical reports to determine whether or not the injury was caused solely by the slip. With our full-proof process and our past experience with slipping and falling cases, we can help you get a settlement to cover the cost of treatment, rehabilitation, and lost wages under premises liability laws in the state of Nevada.

Let’s review some important basics about this type of case.
Slipping accidents can happen for a wide variety of reasons. However, they most typically take place on commercial property with high amounts of foot traffic. It may come as no surprise that a grocery store or supermarket is the most common environment for a slip and fall in most states. This is because of the crowded atmosphere and high likelihood of spills.
Any spill or hazard can contribute to a slip and fall. Businesses, in particular, have a strong duty to make their premises safe for the public. If there is a spill or other problem that makes a fall more likely, the business must take action fast. Employees must either resolve the issue or take action to minimize the danger, such as by putting up signs and cordoning off the area.
To be successful, a personal injury victim must generally establish that their injury was caused by the action or inaction of another person. When it is caused by an action, that is recklessness; when it is caused by an inaction, that is negligence.
Let’s take our supermarket example. If a customer spills something in the store and nobody does anything about it all day, that is negligence. If employees are running through the store, squirting ketchup and mustard all over the floors, that is recklessness.
Depending on the situation, slip and fall settlements may run anywhere from a few dollars to millions. A fair settlement makes things right by covering medical expenses and other costs directly attributable to the accident. Defending your rights means taking the correct actions quickly, gathering evidence and making the right statements to those involved.
