Nevada Personal Injury Lawyers Representing Accident Victims in Smith Valley

Nearly fifty miles southeast of Nevada’s Carson City is Smith Valley, a quiet community of 1,600 residents, most of whom are families raising young children.

The area first gained notoriety in the 19th century thanks to the legendary Wovoka. Known as “Jack Wilson” amongst European Americans, Wovoka was a well respected Northern Paiute religious leader who was the recipient of prophetic visions and claimed to be able to control the weather. He eventually created what is known as the Ghost dance, a traditional form of round dancing that was supposed to resurrect Paiutes who had passed while removing white European Americans from North America.

Today just over 1% of residents in Smith Valley are exclusively American Indian, but the community does boast a fair blend of nationalities and races. The residents in this area tend to enjoy a higher income than the Nevada median household income, earning nearly $53,000 each year compared to the state average of $49,760.

More impressive is that many of these residents are entrepreneurs and made-business owners who have built their own success from the ground up. These businesses, as with others across the country, are responsible for the safety of those on their premises.

The Importance of Premise Liability in Nevada

It doesn’t matter if it’s a business you own, a home, or any other piece of property, Nevada state law holds that you are responsible for keeping the individuals who come to your premises safe from unreasonable danger.

What this means is:

  • It’s your duty to regularly inspect your property
  • It’s your duty to maintain your property
  • It’s your duty to warn individuals of any potential harm

Determining Liability in Smith Valley

Determining premise liability, particularly in the state of Nevada, can be tricky and requires a cautious approach and careful handling. For example, if someone slips and falls in a place of business, the business owner may not be held liable if they or an employee did not know about any potential dangers or hazards.

If it’s thought that the dangerous surface should have been previously repaired or taken care of, however, then that business owner may be liable.

Premise liability claims really come down to whether or not the business owner was negligent and to what degree, as well as whether or not the injured party was careless in their actions and to what degree that may have contributed to their injury. This is what can make these cases incredibly complex and often requires the handling of a seasoned Smith Valley personal injury attorney.

At Bertoldo, Baker, Carter and Smith, our Smith Valley personal injury lawyers have fought for the health and recovery of a number of injured clients, as well as defended the rights of business owners to ensure fair compensation for both parties.

Whether you’re a business owner with questions about premise liability or have been injured because of the negligence of another, please call us today at (702) 505-8115 to arrange for a personal consultation.
