Casino owners may try to minimize premises liability claims

Hundreds of thousands of people visit the casinos in Nevada every year. For this reason, it is not strange that premises liability lawsuits are also prevalent in this state. When so many people move about, there will always be the likelihood of an individual suffering some personal injury.

Chlorine exposure at pool may lead to premises liability claim

Residents of all states, including those in Nevada, are likely aware of the dangers that can be posed by public swimming pools. Owners of such facilities have the responsibility of ensuring that the water is clean and that the required chemicals are added in the correct quantities. Swimming pool injuries are not uncommon at this time of the year, and owners of public facilities may have to face premises liability claims if they are deemed negligent.

Pedestrian accident: Nevada joins campaign to prevent fatalities

In collaboration with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, law enforcement agencies across Nevada will take part in a June campaign that will be focused on the safety of pedestrians. Statistics provided by the Las Vegas Transportation Research Center, the NHTSA and the University of Nevada indicate that local residents -- rather than visitors to our state -- are the victims of almost 90 percent of fatal car and pedestrian accidents. The Joining Forces campaign aims to increase awareness about how poor choices during driving -- and walking -- can result in a fatal pedestrian accident.

It is only natural for consumers in Nevada to expect the stores at which they do their shopping to be free of hazards.

In cases in which the injuries were caused by avoidable safety hazards that were left unaddressed, the business and property owners may be held liable in premises liability lawsuits.
