Representing the Victims of Personal Injury Accidents throughout Nevada
“Slip and fall” is the term commonly used to refer to accidents that occur on another person’s property as a result of another person’s negligence or a dangerous condition. Slip and fall accidents often occur at hotels, motels, resorts, casinos, restaurants, grocery stores, and shopping malls.
Slip and fall accidents involve the complex legal theory of premises liability. Just because you were injured due to a slip and fall on another person’s property does not necessarily result in liability, but if you were injured as a result of the property owner or manager’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries.

Common Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents

- Dog bites and animal attacks
- Other dangerous conditions on the property
Legal Theory of Premises Liability
For a plaintiff to prevail in a slip and fall case, he or she must prove the following:
- The property owner or property manager knew about the hazard and failed to take the appropriate and necessary actions to prevent injuries. The duty of care varies depending on the relationship between the owner and the person entering the property. For instance, the obligations of a business toward its patrons are different than the obligations of a homeowner toward his or her guests.
- The plaintiff exercised personal responsibility to prevent the accident. An injured party must not have been acting irresponsibly or negligently, or in such a way that exacerbated the situation.
