Property Owner’s Responsibility to Prevent Falls
Who is liable for your damages after you slipped and fell on someone else’s property? It depends on what led up to your fall and what type of visitor you were when it happened. Property owners owe differing levels of care to different visitors, which can impact liability and, ultimately, your available recovery amount.
In premises liability law, there are three distinct visitor types in most cases:
- Invitee: An invitee is a person who has been invited onto the property by the proprietor and for the proprietor’s benefit. A shopper inside a retail store is a common example of an invitee. Property owners owe the highest duty of care to invitees, which can mean they need to look for and address any hazards before invitees arrive.
- Licensee: A licensee is a person who has entered a property for personal reasons. A friend who is visiting another friend’s house is a common example of a licensee, as are door-to-door salespersons. Property owners owe a moderate duty of care to licensees, which can mean they need to warn them of any known hazards on the property.
- Trespasser: A trespasser is a person who is on the property without permission or while committing a crime, such as a burglar. Property owners owe the slightest duty of care to trespassers.
Based on this information, your slip and fall accident case will likely be the strongest if you were an invitee when the accident occurred. However, we can work on all sorts of claims, including those in which our client doesn’t know what type of visitor they were.
Nevada Comparative Negligence Law
Nevada uses a comparative negligence law with a 51% threshold. If you are found to be at least 51% liable for your slip and fall accident and damages, you won’t be able to make a recovery. A defendant will try to use this law to argue that you slipped due to your own carelessness and, therefore, they shouldn’t owe you anything. Our legal team can anticipate this defense and look for ways to circumvent it before it ever comes up.
