Property owners are expected to keep their premises reasonably safe. While especially true for business owners, this also applies to private and public property. If you were injured while on the property of another person or a business, you could be entitled to compensation for those injuries.
An experienced Las Vegas premises liability lawyer can provide an analysis of your case and help you seek compensation. Our skilled attorneys at LVNV Legal | Injury Law Firm are experienced in handling unsafe property cases and could provide essential legal guidance.
For you to be successful in a claim against a negligent property owner, certain elements of premises liability must be proven. This includes proving that the defendant owned the property, that a dangerous condition was present on the property, that defendant knew or should have known about the dangerous condition, and that the hazard directly caused you injury. Other nuances may also need proven in individual circumstances.
Hazards on a property that can create a dangerous condition vary greatly, but often include:
Many other hazards may also be grounds for a property hazard lawsuit. Our local lawyers at LVNV Legal can review your premises liability case to determine your potential available recovery.
Most unsafe property cases fall within the standard personal injury limitations period of two years from the date the injury occurred. Nevada Revised Statutes § 11.190 requires most premises liability cases be filed within this time limit, otherwise you could be time barred. Exceptions may exist, but it is critical to approach a qualified attorney in Las Vegas as soon as possible after an accident on someone else’s property.
State law sets different duties of care owed by a property owner depending on the legal status of the plaintiff at the time they were on the defendant’s property. Your visitor status at the time of your accident can significantly impact your ability to recover compensation for your losses. A Las Vegas attorney could determine what type of visitor you were and how this could impact your premises liability case.
An invitee is a person who is visiting a premise for the benefit of the property owner. These are commonly patrons at stores or restaurants. These types of guests are owed the highest duty of care.
Property owners are expected to actively inspect for hazards and work swiftly to correct them when present. There is also a requirement by law to conduct regular safety inspections and warn of any known dangers.
A licensee is an individual who comes onto the property for the benefit of themselves or the joint benefit of the parties. These most commonly include social guests, such as when a friend comes to a person’s home to visit. No regular inspections are required, but warnings of known dangers are.
A trespasser is on the property of another without the expressed or implied permission of the owner. These visitors are owed the least amount of protection as property owners are only expected to not intentionally harm trespassers, such as with traps.
An injury on another’s property could be compensable through a premises liability lawsuit. However, holding a property owner liable for their negligence can be difficult without legal guidance.

I consulted with Mr. Segal on a business matter, and found him to be very detail-oriented and analytical. His legal knowledge and thorough analysis enable him to strategically position clients for success. I also found that he conducts himself in a professional manner and truly cares about his clients' interests.
Shoham's keen analytical mind, strong business sense and straightforward approach to litigation makes him a strong force to be reckoned with if you ever have to face him in the courtroom, and an even stronger ally to have when working on a case with complex legal issues. I endorse this lawyer.
Mr. Segal has handled several real estate deals for our company. His service is always professional, efficient and prompt. His response time is very quick and helpful. looking forward for working with him in the future. Best experience!
Shoham was kind, patient and knowledgeable in explaining how to qualify my mother for Medicaid long term care. I did not even know my mother was eligible. There are so many aspects to paying for long term care that so many people — including myself — do not know about. One would be lucky to have this firm in your corner navigating you through it.
Knowledgeable, professional and patient. Mr. Segal was always available to us and was able to take care of all of my family’s legal needs. I am so grateful that he was there to guide us through everything. Highly recommended!
Shoham has been handling my foreclosure case and I am beyond satisfied with the results so far. Beyond being very knowledgeable and professional, Shoham is very accessible and his demeanor is of an attorney who thoroughly calculates and strategizes his every move. I highly recommend to anyone in need of a lawyer for any sort of litigation.
My parents don't know much about the best way (or any way) to plan their estate. My sister and I have been trying to get them to figure things out for a decade but they never do because it made them too nervous. I got recommended to Mr Segal by a friend and now the ball has started rolling! He made my parents feel comfortable...
