Las Vegas Slip and Fall Lawyer


Experienced Slip and Fall Lawyer

In Nevada, business owners, homeowners, and landlords are required by law to take reasonable steps to keep their properties safe for visitors. This includes performing routine maintenance, making necessary repairs, and staying up to date on local safety codes. Unfortunately, thousands of people are still injured every year as a result of property owners failing to maintain their premises. Injuries sustained as a result can be both painful and costly, so if you or a loved one were injured on another person’s property, it is vital to retain the services of an experienced slip and fall lawyer who will aggressively represent your interests and help you obtain the compensation you deserve.

A slip and fall accident can result in serious fractures, head injuries, contusions or other injuries. Under the legal concept of premises liability, the victim of a slip and fall accident can claim damages if the accident was caused by the negligence of the property owner or an employee.

Our firm, Naqvi Injury Law, helps victims of premises liability accidents get compensation for their injuries, lost wages and suffering. In your case, we will work to maximize the compensation you receive.

Negligent Maintenance

In Nevada, all property owners are required to take reasonable steps to ensure that their property is safe for invited visitors. To this end, property owners must:

  • Maintain a risk-free environment;
  • Make necessary repairs in a timely manner;
  • Post warning signs, if needed;
  • Block access to dangerous areas or hazards; and
  • Comply with local safety requirements.

Whether due to ignorance or carelessness, many property owners fail to take these steps and in so doing, endanger the safety of any visitors. Fortunately, those who are injured as a result of a property owner’s negligence can obtain compensation for the losses they suffered. To establish that an accident could have been avoided, but for a property owner’s negligence, the plaintiff must provide evidence that:

  • The property owner owed a duty of care to the plaintiff;
  • The property owner breached that duty;  and
  • The plaintiff was injured as a result of the property owner’s breach.

Most slip and fall accidents occur at busy locations, such as:

  • Retail stores;
  • Grocery stores;
  • Malls;
  • Stadiums;
  • Amusement parks;
  • Restaurants;
  • Hotels;
  • Cruise ships; and
  • Bars.

Some of the most common slip and fall accidents are caused by failing to prevent or correct the following defects:

  • Defective stairs and railings;
  • Slippery floors;
  • Uneven or icy sidewalks;
  • Torn carpet or warped floors;
  • Poor lighting;
  • Debris or trash;
  • The presence of toxic fumes or chemicals;
  • Improperly stacked merchandise;
  • Crumbling curbs;
  • Safety violations; and
  • Inadequate security.

These types of accidents can cause a wide array of injuries, including, but not limited to the following:

  • Severe ankle, knee, and wrist sprains;
  • Concussions or traumatic brain injury;
  • Bruising, scrapes, and lacerations;
  • Dislocated shoulders;
  • Fractured vertebrae or spinal cord injury;
  • Fractured hips or pelvis;
  • Fractured wrists, ankles, and hands; and
  • Facial injuries.

The severity of slip and fall injuries vary depending on the age and relative health of the victim. For instance, elderly people or those with preexisting bone conditions may sustain more serious bone breakages in the event of a fall, whereas infants are more likely to suffer from serious head injuries.


The cost of treating these types of injuries can be financially overwhelming for many victims. Expenses can include the cost of surgery, repeat doctor’s visits, emergency treatment, prescription medications, and rehabilitative therapy. The repercussions of serious injuries can also be far-reaching as victims may suffer pain for the rest of their lives or be unable to regain the strength and flexibility that they previously enjoyed. Injured parties may also be required to take time off from work, making it even more difficult to pay medical bills. Spouses and loved ones may also be required to take a leave of absence to help care for the victim or hire someone to help with childcare or the completion of daily activities. This can eat even further into a family’s budget, especially when they are living on a fixed income or do not have adequate insurance coverage.

Fortunately, slip and fall victims may be able to obtain compensation for medical expenses as well as:

  • Lost wages;
  • Loss of future income;
  • Property damage;
  • Pain and suffering; and
  • Loss of consortium.

While a monetary award may not be able to fully compensate a victim for the pain and suffering that he or she endured as a result of the injury, it can go a long way towards hastening the recovery process.

Invited Visitors and Trespassers

All property owners are required by law to take certain steps to make their property reasonably safe. However, some individuals owe a higher duty of care to visitors, of which there are three general types:

  • Invitees;
  • Licensees; and
  • Trespassers.

Invitees are visitors who have been invited onto another person’s premises for the property owner’s benefit. Those who fall under this category include patrons of shopping malls, grocery stores, casinos, and other businesses. These visitors are owed the highest duty of care because the reason for their presence is solely for the owner’s benefit. To establish that he or she falls under this category, an injured party must demonstrate that:

  • He or she entered the property by invitation, whether express or implied;
  • He or she entered the property for a purpose connected to an owner’s business or with an activity conducted on the property; and
  • His or her presence was beneficial to the owner.

Business owners have a duty to warn invitees of both latent and hidden dangers of which they know, or should know.

Most visitors who fall under the category of licensee are social guests who are invited onto someone’s property, but not for business purposes. For this reason, licensees are owed a reasonable duty of care, but one that is lower than that owed to invitees. As a result, property owners are only required to warn of dangers that they actually know exist and are also not required to detect and make repairs. They are also not usually required to reveal the presence of hazards that are open and obvious and would be recognized by a reasonable individual.

In Nevada, property owners are not required to take reasonable steps to make their property safe for trespassers. There is an exception, however, when a trespasser is a minor and is injured by:

  • An artificial condition located on the property that is attractive to children, such as an unfenced swimming pool and the owner does not take reasonable steps to avoid injury; or
  • A dangerous condition that is left exposed and the property owner does not take measures to protect children from coming into contact with it.


If a plaintiff is able to establish that the defendant owned or was in control of the property and that he or she was legally present at the time of the injury, he or she must then demonstrate that:

  • The property’s condition was dangerous;
  • The owner knew or should have known of the danger; and
  • The property owner had a reasonable opportunity to repair the problem or provide notice of the danger.

To be held legally responsible for a victim’s injuries, the property owner must have had actual or implied notice that the dangerous condition existed on the property. If the owner created the dangerous condition, a court will presume that he or she knew that it existed.

A court will also assess whether a landlord or property owner made routine and reasonable efforts to keep the property safe by evaluating the following factors:

  • The length of time that the dangerous condition existed;
  • Whether the owner performed routine maintenance;
  • The reason for the condition’s presence;
  • Whether the dangerous condition could have been removed;
  • Whether there was a safer place the hazard could have been placed without inconveniencing the property owner; and
  • Whether a failure to utilize a warning sign or barrier contributed to the injury.

Time Limits

In Nevada, a person who was injured as a result of an owner’s failure to maintain his or her property only has two years to file a claim in court. However, if the victim only damaged property during the fall, he or she will have three years to file.

Our law firm’s founding attorney — Farhan Naqvi has handled hundreds of complicated auto accident cases, including:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Drunk driver accidents

He started his career as an insurance defense attorney many years ago and later joined one of the largest personal injury law firms in Nevada where he often litigated more than 200 cases simultaneously. His strong experience with insurance companies & accident law is the foundation of our boutique law firm. We devote ample resources & time to obtaining maximum compensation for accident victims.


Trials are notoriously time-consuming and stressful. While in many cases, plaintiffs have no choice but to pursue legal action to obtain compensation for their losses, in others, legal action can be avoided. Property owners may be willing to settle with injured parties to avoid a trial, which may bring unwanted publicity and cost much more than they anticipate. At Naqvi Injury Law, we are often able to help our clients avoid the stresses of court by negotiating a settlement with the property owner and his or her insurance providers.

Maximizing Your Compensation

Naqvi Injury Law will begin investigating your case immediately. We will work to determine the cause of the accident and the property owner’s liability. We will work closely with your doctor and other medical specialists to identify the true extent of your injuries, and the medical treatment and rehabilitation you need to recover to the fullest extent possible. Our firm will also include a demand for any lost wages in your claim if applicable.

We have successfully represented numerous victims of slip and fall accidents and other acts of negligence. These have included both Las Vegas residents and out-of-state visitors. We will work to build a strong and persuasive case deigned to maximize the compensation you receive.

Call Us Immediately

After you have gotten medical help, speak with a knowledgeable personal injury attorney as soon as possible. The longer you wait, the more difficult it will be to obtain compensation for your injuries.

  • Get the names and phone numbers of witnesses.
  • Write down your recollection of the event, including what caused your fall.
  • Do not make any statement to an insurance company representative.

Then call Naqvi Injury Law at (702) 487-3729. An attorney at our firm can evaluate your case and discuss what we can do to help you get compensation for your injuries, financial losses and suffering.

Why Work with Our Firm?

A property owner or landlord’s failure to safely maintain his or her premises can have serious consequences, including physical injury, emotional distress, and financial trouble. Medical expenses can quickly overwhelm a family’s ability to pay and the physical pain suffered by the victim can be excruciating. Property owners who fail to fulfill their responsibilities to invited visitors can and should be held responsible for injuries sustained as a result, so if you or a loved one were injured on another person’s property, please contact Naqvi Injury Law by calling (702) 487-3729 or by completing and submitting one of our standard contact forms and a member of our legal team will help you schedule a free consultation with an experienced slip and fall lawyer who can explain your legal options.

Although this was a long experience (most cases are) it was worth while. We came in to this case worried about not being properly represented, or being taken advantage of because of our younger age; However, Jake Suty and Ashley Cortez were extremely helpful and determined to get not only the settlement but the treatment we deserve as any other human being. They worked with us even when we had a million questions and concerns. and were able to help push for a settlement that was more fair to us than originally offered. They were comforting, knowledgeable, and overall pleasing regarding energy. Hopefully we never have to go through this again, but if we did, I know where I will be returning! Thank you all at Naqvi for your help!

Every time I called I was greeted bubbly, caring people on the other line,shout out to their intake dept! They would always ask how I was feeling so far before even connecting me to the person assisting with my case. Maggie worked diligently on getting me situated from beginning to end and communicated with me every step of the way. Meghan my attorney communicated with the insurances companies and made sure I was compensated for everything I had been through. She made sure I was comfortable with what I was getting and consulted everything with me! Thank you all for making this experience a seamless one. They aren’t all talk and get things done!
