The Purpose of a Slip and Fall Lawsuit
The purpose of a slip and fall suit is to help you, the victim of the accident, receive the compensation you’re entitled to because of your accident.
If you slip or fall in a place of business, we can seek appropriate compensation from the involved insurance companies.

Our personal injury attorneys could pursue reimbursement for:
- Doctors’ appointments
- Emergency room visits
- Physical rehabilitation

- Prescription medications
- Decreased quality of life

When Are Slips and Falls Considered Negligence?
Slips and falls are sometimes caused by negligence on the part of the owner of the establishment. If the owner of a business is not complying with safety regulations that are mandated by the law, then that could be considered negligence.
If there was a spill left unattended, then that could be negligence. If there was a part of a building that was under construction or otherwise dangerous but wasn’t roped off, then that could be negligence.
The business where you fell doesn’t necessarily have to be guilty of negligence for you to have a case. These are just a few scenarios in which your accident may have happened.

How Much Does a Slip and Fall Lawyer Cost?
Slip and fall accident victims facing mounting medical bills often worry about the additional cost of legal representation. However, Van Law eliminates this stress by offering our services on contingency.
Thus, if we don’t procure compensation through an insurance settlement or win your case in court, you don’t pay any attorney’s fees.
In addition, your initial consultation is free, and you’re under no obligation to hire us after we’ve sat down to discuss your case. So, there’s no risk in speaking to the Van Law team about your slip and fall accident.
How Long Do You Have to File a Slip and Fall Lawsuit?
This will depend on the type of lawsuit you plan on filing. In a slip and fall case, you’re likely filing either a personal injury suit or a wrongful death suit. In Nevada, the statute of limitations for both of these is two years, according to NRS § 11.190(4)(e).
This amount of time is how long you have to file a case. If you’re approaching this deadline, then contact us today so that we can meet and discuss filing a suit before this deadline expires.
Frequently Asked Questions About Las Vegas Slip and Fall Cases
As you consider partnering with Van Law, you may have these questions:
What Is the Average Settlement for a Slip and Fall?
There is no average settlement for a slip and fall. How much you can recover through a claim or lawsuit depends on many things, including:
- Your estimated recovery period
- The severity of your condition
- Your anticipated care costs
- Your missed time from work
- The extent of your pain and suffering
- Other circumstances of your fall
Our team intends to account for every hardship in your claim’s value. That way, you can rest easy knowing that we’re advocating for you.
What Is the Slip and Fall Law in Nevada?
There isn’t a singular law for slip and fall cases in Nevada. Yet, in general, the state grants you the right to seek compensation after falling on another party’s property. To prove your case, we must establish:
Duty of Care
All property owners must keep their premises safe for invited guests. This means keeping walkways clear of dangerous conditions, promptly mopping up spills, and sealing off dangerous areas.
Breach of Duty
Your lawyer must show that although the property owner had an obligation to keep their premises safe, they didn’t. Examples of hazards on another’s property include:
- Poorly lit walkways
- Wet floors
- Stairs without rails
- Uneven pavement
- Exposed electrical cords
- Overgrown foliage
- Slippery floors
Next, to hold the at-fault party financially accountable for your losses, you must show that the property owner’s negligence caused your fall. We could use security camera footage, photos of the accident scene, and accident reconstruction data to bolster your case.
Finally, your lawyer will demonstrate that because you slipped and fell, you have damages. These could include medical bills and lost income.
Where Do Slip and Falls Frequently Happen in Las Vegas?
There isn’t a centralized database that keeps track of where slips and falls happen in Las Vegas. Yet, clients have come to us after slipping and falling at:
- Department stores
- Government buildings (such as the DMV)
- Hotels and resorts
- Water parks, amusement parks, and other attractions

- Knee injuries
- Whiplash and other soft-tissue conditions

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
