Obtaining Compensation for Vacation Slip-and-Fall Accidents

Vacationing for the summer? We know that many holidaymakers choose waterside locations – and for good reason. While this may be fun – and cooling, especially in hot temperatures – water also means there is a higher chance of slipping and falling.

Water is often tracked around a pool area, and an unsuspecting child or adult can easily slip and fall on water they don’t see. As well, when going in and out of a hotel or motel, water can also be present, creating more situations where a slip and fall accident can occur.

A slip on water can cause injuries such as bruises, scrapes, lacerations, and broken bones. A serious slip and fall accident can also result in a traumatic brain injury if one hits their head, or a spinal cord injury if one’s fall torques their back in the wrong way.

Slip and Falls on Vacation

If you, or a loved one, are on vacation and suffer a slip and fall accident due to water on the ground of a vacation spot, pool, or other area, you may be entitled to receive compensation for the injuries suffered, especially if the slip was due to the negligence of someone else like a land owner or premises owner.

Negligence is a legal term for when someone owes another person a duty; that duty is breached; and the breach of that duty caused actual damages to that person to whom the duty was owed.

For example, if a slippery liquid was left on the floor of a hotel lobby, and the hotel’s maintenance workers failed to see it or clean it up, this could be a negligent act that would render the hotel owner or personnel liable, especially if serious injuries were incurred.

If you are able to bring a slip and fall lawsuit under a negligence theory, you could recover compensatory damages. These are meant to compensate you, or your injured love one, for the injuries or other damages incurred.

The compensatory damages include:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Lost ability to earn a living
  • Pain and suffering
  • Property damage

Of course, all of the aforementioned are case-specific, and each slip and fall claim must be evaluated on its own facts. That is why it is important to consult with our Las Vegas personal injury attorneys at Bertoldo, Baker, Carter & Smith.
