What Happens If I Fall in a Grocery Store in Nevada?
In Nevada, if someone slips and falls in a grocery store, they can seek to hold the store chain accountable for the incident and their injuries. This is because, as a property owner and an employer, the store chain is responsible for ensuring their store staff members and managers clean up hazards in the stores, such as spilled water on the floor.
So, if an employee does not act responsibly, such as by not cleaning up a spill, the chain is liable for any incident and injuries that occur as a result. However, the injured person must prove the employee/store chain was negligent and establish that the person’s damages are legitimate. A slip and fall lawyer from our firm can help with this task.

How do I Prove the Nevada Grocery Store Acted Negligently?
Our Nevada attorney will build your case to show how the grocery store acted negligently. To prove negligence, first, your lawyer will seek out evidence, such as in-store camera footage of the incident and staff duty lists. Next, they will show this evidence to the store chain’s insurance provider and explain how the evidence indicates negligence. Then, your lawyer must explain how your case demonstrates each of these elements of negligence:
- Duty of care (The store chain’s responsibility to act carefully to prevent injury)
- Breach of duty (The chain’s failure to carry out their responsibility)
- Causation (How the failure in responsibility led to the incident)
- Damages (Your injuries and related losses/issues)
How do I Establish that My Damages Are Legitimate?
To establish your damages, first, your lawyer will seek out other evidence, such as your recent health history. Next, they will give fair monetary value to your non-financial damages, like your physical damages, which will make these damages seem more tangible. Then, they can show the insurer the evidence and values for your damages.

How Will My Nevada Grocery Store Slip and Fall Lawyer Recover My Damages?
Recovering the damages could be challenging if an insurer tries to diminish your case. Many insurers try to avoid or reduce a claimant’s payout. To recover your damages, we can negotiate with the insurer for a fair payout. To prevent the insurer from avoiding a fair payout, our lawyer will demand all your due damages and the fair value for them. If necessary, they could pursue a lawsuit against the negligent party.
If your lawyer must sue, they can take care of the entire litigation process. This includes preparing a lawsuit, serving the suit to the other party, filing the suit through the court system, defending the suit at trial, and seeking a fair verdict in court.
What Is the Statute of Limitations for a Slip and Fall in Nevada?
Your lawyer will also help to meet the deadline for a lawsuit at any point in your case. Per Nevada’s statute of limitations (NRS § 11.190(4)(e))), this deadline is generally within two years of the day an incident occurred.

These guys are amazing. Helped me throughout the process. Always there when I need help. Inititailly called a law firm (the one that has lots of ads on the radio), but they declined my case. Van Law Firm accepted my case without a second thought! Kudos to Daniel, my case manager, and Amanda who expedited my payment process. Highly recommended.Milby Mags
Got in an accident at the beginning of the year and they have been awesome, especially with it being my first accident and me being like this. They have been very communicated, stayed in contact with me the whole time, giving me updates when there were any and even when there weren’t and answered any question I had. I would recommend them to anyone. Everyone I have talked to there has been very friendly. I would give them a 10 out of 10.Ethan Gullet
They made sure that my insurance company covered what I paid for them to which included the gap for my car that was totaled. My medical costs were taken care of and reduced substantially so I was able to get more on my settlement. My case manager, Will Garcia, was always helpful in assisting me and answering any questions I had. They really did an amazing job with my case. I would definitely recommend them to anyone in need of this type of legal help. Most lawyers do not help you with the recovery of the car and rental etc. They are amazing.Teresa Cuthbertson
