What Are the Leading Causes of Slips, Trips, and Falls in Nevada?

Slip and fall accidents send more than one million Americans to emergency rooms every year. Unfortunately, the vast majority of slip and fall accidents and trip and fall accidents can be avoided. 

Most slip and fall accidents are the result of hazards and dangerous conditions, including:

  • Loose or unsecured wires and cables
  • Slippery floor surfaces caused by waxing or spills
  • Broken stairs
  • Broken or missing handrails
  • Unsecured carpets and rugs
  • Uneven floor surfaces
  • Inadequate lighting
  • A buildup of debris and clutter
  • Building code violations, such as poorly designed stairs

Property owners in Nevada have a responsibility to search their premises for these – and other – types of slip and fall hazards. If they allow these hazards to exist and you slip and fall as a result, the owner might be liable for your resulting injuries and losses.

What Compensation Can I Recover if I’ve Slipped and Fallen in Nevada?

While there are some exceptions – like claims for workers’ compensation benefits – you’ll typically be able to recover compensatory damages after a slip and fall in Nevada.

Compensatory damages include two different types of awards: economic and non-economic.

Economic damages are intended to help you handle the financial costs and expenses related to your slip and fall, such as:

Non-economic damages compensate for the harder-to-value trauma and life changes you experience as the victim of a slip and fall, including:

  • Chronic physical pain
  • Disfigurement and scarring
  • Reduced quality of life
  • Loss of consortium
  • Pain and suffering
  • Embarrassment

The more your life changes because of a slip and fall accident in Nevada, the more you can typically expect to recover with a legal claim for damages. You can make the most of your fight for compensation by trusting our top-rated Nevada slip and fall accident attorneys to fight for you.

Common Slip and Fall Injuries

Slip and fall and trip and fall accidents can cause debilitating, life-altering injuries, including:

After a slip and fall, it’s imperative that you report it to the property owner or management. Then, seek immediate medical attention at the closest emergency room to you, even if you don’t think your injuries are severe. Sometimes, internal trauma can be difficult to recognize, especially with the rush of adrenaline you’ve experienced because of your fall. 

Getting checked out at the local hospital will protect your health and help to formally document any physical injuries you’ve suffered, which will be important when you pursue compensation from the negligent property owner down the line.

Can I Still Get Compensation if a Nevada Property Owner Blames Me for a Fall?

When you file a slip and fall claim, the property owner’s best defense will be to blame you for your accident. If you don’t dispute these claims, they could limit or bar a financial recovery.

That’s because Nevada’s modified comparative negligence statute will apply to your civil slip and fall lawsuit. Damages are reduced proportionately to fault up to 50 percent. Once your liability exceeds half, you lose the ability to recover compensation from the negligent property owner.

You can recover a reduced monetary award if your liability is less than 51 percent. 

Let’s say you’re assigned half of the blame for a recent slip and fall accident in Las Vegas, Nevada. If your case is worth $100,000, you’d be able to recover a maximum of $50,000 when contributory fault is considered.

How Long Will I Have To Recover Compensation After a Slip and Fall in Nevada?

Once you’ve been hurt in a slip and fall accident in Nevada, you’ll have just two years to formally seek damages for your resulting injuries.

A two-year statute of limitations also applies to wrongful death lawsuits related to fatal slips and falls in Nevada.

You lose the right to seek compensation from a negligent property owner if you don’t file your personal injury claim before the filing deadline expires. There are exceptions that could change the time limit for your case, however, so it’s best to get in touch with our attorneys as soon as possible.
