A slip and fall can happen anywhere at any time. Often, these incidents only result in minor bumps and bruises. However, when a property contains hazards, a tripping accident can result in severe or even fatal injuries.
If you suffered a serious fall because of dangerous conditions on someone else’s property, you may be entitled to bring a premises liability suit. A Spring Valley slip and fall lawyer at LVNV Legal could assess your case and determine an effective strategy for pursuing compensation. Let a skilled attorney handle your claim while you focus on recovering from your injuries.
The owner of the property where the injury occurred is usually held responsible in a slip and fall case. However, a plaintiff and their attorney must be able to show that the owner was negligent, and that the accident could have been prevented. There may be additional legal nuances depending on whether the injuries occurred on private, commercial, or government property.
In any slip and fall case, the plaintiff must prove three things:
Slip and fall cases can become complicated and proving negligence can be a difficult task without legal counsel. Additionally, Nevada follows a comparative negligence system, which means the plaintiff could see their damages reduced if they are found partially at-fault for their injuries. A skilled slip and fall attorney at our Spring Valley office can be a crucial resource when building a case and holding the responsible party liable.
The money that injured victims can recover from at-fault parties is referred to as damages. In slip and fall lawsuits, plaintiffs may be entitled to compensatory damages to cover all of their economic and non-economic losses. These could include medical costs, lost wages, future earnings, and pain and suffering. Compensatory damages are meant to enable a plaintiff to return to their pre-accident state, a legal concept known as making a plaintiff “whole.”
If the defendant’s actions were particularly egregious, the court could order them to pay punitive damages. Punitive damages are meant to punish the defendant for their conduct and discourage others from engaging in similar behavior. However, this form of compensation is rare. A seasoned local attorney can advise a slip and fall victim on the damages that may be available in their circumstances.
If you are suffering from injuries from a serious trip and fall accident, you may be able to recover damages from any negligent parties. However, it is important to remember that the rules governing what constitutes a legitimate claim are complex. As such, it is essential that you speak with a Spring Valley slip and fall lawyer before attempting to pursue a lawsuit on your own.
Additionally, the statute of limitations in Nevada only gives you two years from the date of the fall to file a claim for damages. Be proactive and contact our office right away to discuss your case. We are prepared to work for the compensation you need for your losses.
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...
