A slip and fall accident can happen on just about any surface that is wet, slippery or poorly maintained, and they often lead to serious injuries that can require costly medical care.
When a business owner or government entity fails to provide safe conditions that are free from preventable harm, the owner may be held liable for any injuries sustained on their property. This is considered premises liability law, an area of law in which our Las Vegas slip and fall attorneys are well-versed.
We have decades of experience helping injury victims recover the maximum amount of compensation they are entitled to after an unexpected accident caused by another’s negligence or carelessness.
