Understanding Nevada Premises Liability Law
Lawsuits resulting from slips and falls typically are brought under a broader category of the law known as premises liability law. Under Nevada law, property owners have a duty to ensure that their premises are safe for use. Generally speaking, premises liability law says that any property owner owes a duty of care to a person who enters the property, including homes and businesses alike. This duty of care means that a property owner must eradicate any potential harms that she knows about or should know about, and that she has a duty to warn others about certain dangers on the property. In practice, this means a property owner must clean up liquid spills when they happen, for example, or must replace torn carpeting that could result in a trip and fall accident. Property owners also have a duty to provide lighting in areas where a slip, trip, or fall might happen, such as a stairway.
Nevada law is particularly friendly to plaintiffs who file claims after sustaining injuries on another party’s premises. In the recent lawsuit of Foster v. Costco, the Nevada Supreme Court clarified that the duty of care owed by property owners does not go away even when a potentially dangerous condition is open and obvious. In brief, if you suffer serious injuries on another party’s property in Paradise, NV, you may be able to file a successful premises liability lawsuit.
