Slip and falls are the most common type of accident related to premises liability laws in Nevada and the rest of the country. When a property or business owner fails to provide safe conditions for their visitors or customers, injuries that result in the owner’s negligence can make the victims eligible to obtain financial compensation.

Proving Premises Liability
In a premises liability case, there a few critical elements a plaintiff must establish in order to determine if the order was negligent. The victim must prove that the property owner or an employee caused the dangerous condition, the owner or employee must have known about the dangerous condition but did nothing about it, and the owner or employee should have known about the dangerous conditions. Judges and juries determine liability by deciding if the owner makes an effort to keep the property safe.
