Common Causes of Slip & Fall Accidents in Nevada

Examples of hazards that may lead to slip and fall accidents include:

  • Snow and ice
  • Water leaks and spills
  • Recently waxed or mopped floors
  • Sudden changes in walking surfaces (from carpet to wood, for instance)
  • Broken steps and stairs
  • Parking lot potholes
  • Splashed grease or oil
  • Loose carpet, floorboards, rugs, or mats
  • Cables running across walkways
  • Open doors, drawers, and other obstructions
  • Uncleaned debris
  • Bright light reflecting on a shiny floor that causes a glare
  • Poorly lit areas that make it difficult to see
  • Lack of handrails
  • Lack of signage warning of such hazards

Who is Responsible for a Slip & Fall Accident?

Property owners and managers of any kind have a “duty of care” when it comes to guests. By law, the duty of care states that property owners are responsible for the wellbeing of friends, family, customers, clients, staff, and anyone else who enters their space.

If there is a hazard on a property, it must be either blocked off so no one can be affected by it or promptly repaired, removed, or otherwise made safe. Any property defect that causes injury to a person that the property owner knew about or reasonably should have known about can lead to a lawsuit.

Hotel & Casino Slip & Fall Accidents

If you get into a slip and fall accident at a hotel or casino in the Henderson area, contact an attorney right away. Do not report your slip and fall to the staff or security unless you need immediate help and medical attention.

Why? Hotels and casinos in the Henderson and Las Vegas areas will do whatever it takes to minimize liability for any accident that takes place on their property. They may even attempt to place the blame on you.

Only speak to the employees as much as you have to before contacting an attorney. Otherwise, you may accidentally say something that can be used against you to deny your claim.

Compensation for a Slip & Fall Accident

The average payout for a slip and fall accident varies based on the unique factors of each case.

  • Property damage repair and replacement, in case something like a watch or cell phone was damaged during the fall
  • The cost of all medical expenses related to the accident, including hospitalization, surgery, medication, physical therapy, and more
  • Lost wages or the loss of your earning capacity should you have to take time off of work for recovery or leave your job entirely
  • Pain and suffering, emotional trauma, and other hardships endured (also known as “non-economic damages”)
  • Other losses directly related to your accident

Should I Get a Lawyer for My Slip & Fall Case?

While having a lawyer on your side will greatly bolster your claim and improve your chances of obtaining maximum compensation, the choice is up to you. An attorney can help your case by investigating the accident scene, building your claim, determining how much compensation you are eligible for, helping you file paperwork correctly and on time, Whether you wish to take this on by yourself or work with a lawyer is entirely your choice.
