Las Vegas Personal Injury Attorneys
Premises liability law covers virtually all properties and businesses in and around the Las Vegas area. While many stores and entertainment venues maintain very attractive facilities to draw patrons, many others do not keep pace with needed maintenance and housekeeping requirements in a high-traffic business. Premises liability injury claims are held to same standard as automobile accidents including comparative negligence. But winning a premises liability personal injury claim can be more challenging and strongly contested, meaning that is vital to have an experienced legal representative like our Las Vegas personal injury attorneys at Albright, Stoddard, Warnick & Albright.
Millions of patrons visit the Las Vegas strip throughout any year. These are congested areas that encompass large facilities and operational grounds where falls and other accidents can happen at a moment’s notice. Not only are slip and fall accidents common, but the number of people visiting can be involved in injuries ranging from falls to robberies. When multiple actors are involved in an injury the opportunity for additional negligent parties can be present as well, including standing to sue those who perpetrate criminal acts against others. This can complicate many premise liability cases when separate parties attempt to shift blame, but our Las Vegas personal injury attorneys understand how to unravel these types of difficult liability cases.
Grocery stores also have unique problems with upkeep of their business location, especially regarding store fixtures and floor maintenance. The opportunity for customer injury in a grocery store may be higher than most other businesses, particularly due to high levels of traffic. Safety programs do not always receive proper attention and the chance for personal injury is always apparent.
Malls also have a potentially complicated legal issue with premises liability because of the number of different stores in the structure and the variety of negligent actors that may be involved. Not only do the different stores have upkeep issues, but also the mall operators themselves are often liable merely because of the location in which the injury occurs.
