Slip & Fall Accidents

Pahrump Slip & Fall Accident Lawyers

Took a Spill? Time to Sue

Slip or trip and fall accidents are sometimes propped up as “no big deal” by insurance companies that argue that falling over can’t be “that bad.” Of course, if you slipped on someone else’s property, then you already know just how serious these accidents can be. You might also already know that you should take action against the negligent property owner who caused your injuries.

Bertoldo Carter Smith & Cullen in Pahrump can help you file a claim if you were visiting someone else’s property when you slipped and fell. The property owner probably owed you a duty of care to protect you from such injuries. By failing to protect you, they could be liable for all your damages. Let’s explore your legal options today.

Causes of Slip & Fall Accidents

Everyday causes of slip/trip and fall accidents include:

  • Uplifted carpets
  • Slipper tile floors
  • Loose cabling and wires
  • Random debris on the ground
  • Poorly lit hallways
  • Missing handrails at steps

What caused your slip and fall accident? If you have any evidence of your accident, then please share it with our attorneys. Photographs of the scene are incredibly useful, of course.

If you fell in a commercial property, then there might be cameras around that recorded your accident. Call (702) 505-8115 now if you haven’t already. We need to tell the proprietor of that property to preserve all security camera recordings. If the footage “goes missing” or “accidentally” gets deleted, then we might be able to use that against them in court, assuming that your case escalates to litigation.

Types of Visitors & Duties of Care

Under premises liability law, there are three types of visitors:

  1. Invitee: An invitee has been invited to the property for business reasons. For example, a customer in a store is an invitee. Proprietors owe the greatest duties of care to invitees, which usually includes looking for hazards and addressing them before invitees arrive.
  2. Licensee: A licensee has been invited to the property for nonbusiness or social reasons. For example, a friend in another friend’s home is a licensee. Proprietors owe a moderate duty of care to invitees, which usually includes warning them about hazards around the property.
  3. Trespasser: A trespasser is on a piece of private property without invitation or permission, and often with the intent to commit a crime while there. Proprietors owe a minimal duty of care to trespassers, which includes not setting traps to hurt them while they are there or warning them about guard personnel or dogs there.

Reasonable Time to Clear a Hazard

Property owners need to make a reasonable attempt to clear slip and trip hazards as they occur on their property. The amount of time that constitutes a “reasonable” amount will vary from case to case. For example, a grocer should clear a spill in an aisle within minutes because they are expected to instruct employees to walk the aisles often for that exact reason. But the same grocer might not be expected to clean a puddle in the backroom where shoppers are told not to enter with the same rapidity.
