What Is Premises Liability?

Premises liability refers to the legal responsibility of property owners to ensure the safety of their premises for visitors and guests in or around:

  • Stores and shopping centers
  • Hotels, resorts, and casinos
  • Restaurants and bars
  • Apartment buildings and rental properties
  • Office buildings and commercial spaces

Property owners have a duty to maintain their premises and to warn visitors of any potential hazards. If they fail to do so, they may be held liable for injuries that occur on their property.

Types of Premises Liability Cases

Premises liability cases can arise from a wide range of accidents, including but not limited to:

  • Slip and fall accidents due to wet or uneven surfaces, loose flooring or carpets, inadequate lighting, or debris
  • Dog bites and animal attacks
  • Swimming pool accidents, such as drownings or slip and fall incidents
  • Elevator and escalator accidents due to faulty maintenance or malfunctioning equipment
  • Negligent security resulting in assaults, robberies, or other violent acts on a property

No matter the case type, gambling with your legal representation is never worth it. A Las Vegas premises liability attorney from High Stakes Injury Law has the experience to handle your case carefully and diligently.

Who Is Liable In A Premises Liability Case?

Property owners are typically held responsible for injuries, especially if they were aware of or should have been aware of the hazardous condition and failed to take reasonable steps to address it.

A third-party contractor could also be at fault if they failed to provide a safe working environment while performing services on the property.

Whether it is a single property owner or multiple parties involved, our Las Vegas personal injury attorneys will thoroughly investigate your case to determine liability and pursue the appropriate legal action against all those responsible for your accident injuries.

What Injuries Occur In Premises Liability Cases?

Premises liability cases can result in a wide range of injuries, including but not limited to:

These injuries can significantly impact an individual’s physical, emotional, and financial well-being.

What Damages Can I Recover In A Premises Liability Case?

Economic and non-economic compensation for accident injuries may include:

  • Medical expenses, including current and future treatment, medications, and rehabilitation
  • Lost wages and loss of future earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Property damage
  • Punitive damages, in cases where the property owner acted recklessly or intentionally

A Las Vegas premises liability attorney from High Stakes Injury Law will fight for your right to maximum compensation for all damages and losses.

How Much Is My Premises Liability Case Worth?

The value of a premises liability case depends on various factors, including the severity of your injuries, the impact on your life and ability to earn income, and the property owner’s negligence.

Before you decide that the accident wasn’t severe enough to warrant legal action, consider how much these accidents cost victims and their families:

  • Emergency medical services: On-scene paramedic, ambulance rides, and emergency room treatment can easily exceed $7,000 in Nevada. You are on the hook for these costs when you fail to hold responsible parties accountable for their negligence.
  • In-patient hospital care: The average cost of an overnight stay in a Las Vegas hospital exceeds $2,800 per night. With severe injuries keeping victims hospitalized for weeks or even months, these costs can quickly add up to tens or hundreds of thousands.
  • Surgery and rehabilitation: Medical treatment costs are astronomical, even with excellent health insurance. For example, a spinal fusion surgery often exceeds $100,000 and $1 million in lifetime costs. If head trauma is involved, surgery and rehabilitation can cost over $2.5 million in total medical expenses.
  • Lost income: If your workplace injury keeps you from earning an income, you can seek financial compensation for missed wages. In severe cases, when someone cannot work again, they can suffer millions in future lost earnings.

These tangible economic damages pale in comparison to the emotional and physical pain victims suffer as a result of their injuries. 

As a victim, you deserve to be compensated for all the ways someone else’s negligence has impacted your life, no matter how small you may think your case is.

How Do I Know If I Have A Valid Premises Liability Claim?

An experienced premises liability attorney is the best option for evaluating the validity of a premises liability claim.

Generally, If the property owner was aware or should have been aware of the hazardous condition that caused your injury and failed to address it, you may have a valid compensation claim.

Additionally, any accident occurring within 2 years of the initial injury may qualify you for a compensatory personal injury claim. 

However, there are exceptions to this rule, so seek legal advice as soon as possible to avoid missing out on vital compensation.

What Happens If I Am Partially At Fault For My Premises Liability Injury?

In Nevada, the rule of comparative negligence applies to premises liability cases. 

This means that if you are found partially at fault for your injury, the compensation you receive will be reduced by the percentage of fault assigned to you.

Understanding comparative negligence can be challenging, so having an experienced Las Vegas premises liability attorney is vital to securing full and fair compensation. 

They can argue against any property owner or insurance company’s attempts to shift blame onto you and fight for your right to fair and just compensation.

Who Do I Report A Premises Liability Accident To?

Police may or may not respond to a premises liability accident, depending on the severity of injuries. If they do, make sure to get a copy of the police report and take note of any contact information for witnesses.

You should also report the accident to the property owner or manager as soon as possible and request that an incident report be filed. This will help document the details of the accident and provide evidence for your claim.

Additionally, seeking medical attention immediately after an accident is crucial, even if you do not feel severely injured at first. Some injuries may not present symptoms until later, and having documentation from a medical professional can strengthen your case.

Can I File A Premises Liability Claim If The Accident Occurred On Private Property?

You can still file a premises liability claim if the accident occurred on private property. Private property owners have a duty to maintain safe conditions for visitors and guests, just as commercial property owners do.

However, determining liability may be more challenging in these cases. For example, if you were injured while visiting a friend’s house, you would need to prove that they were aware of the hazardous condition and failed to address it.

This is why you need legal advice from an experienced Las Vegas premises liability attorney who can gather evidence and build a strong case.
