If you were injured after slipping and falling on another’s poorly maintained property, you may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit seeking compensation.
At Henness & Haight, our personal injury attorneys in Las Vegas have represented many victims who were injured in slip and fall accidents and have a strong understanding of Nevada’s laws surrounding these types of cases. We can guide you through the many steps involved in a slip and fall accident lawsuit.
The first step before any lawsuit can begin is to conduct an investigation into the accident to determine if you have a case. Our attorneys will conduct a thorough investigation to determine the cause of your injury and who should be held liable.
These types of cases fall under the legal concept of premises liability, which holds property owners liable for certain injuries that occur on their property. When investigating your claim, our attorneys will determine:
- Who was in control of the property when the accident occurred
- If the victim was given permission to use or enter the property
- If a dangerous condition existed on the property
- If the property owner or party in control of the property knew of or should have known of the dangerous condition
- If the dangerous condition caused the victim to suffer an injury or other damages
In most cases, you will file a claim with the property owner’s liability insurance provider after a slip and fall accident. The insurer will send an adjuster to investigate your slip and fall case and negotiate a settlement based on his or her findings.
Our attorneys will help you file a claim against the insurer and will handle all communications with the insurer, including negotiating a settlement for your claim. We are familiar with the many tactics they may use to reduce the value of your claim, and we are committed to fighting for the maximum compensation you deserve.
