Each year, thousands of people visit stores and shops across the great state of Nevada. The vast majority of businesses and shops in Nevada are safe and welcome visitors. Although in the minority, there will always be those property owners who neglect to maintain their properties. Potential hazards like water left on the floor can cause shoppers to slip and fall. When hazards or neglect cause injuries to visitors, property and business owners can be held legally responsible.
A man in another state filed a lawsuit after he allegedly slipped and fell in a Sav-A-Lot grocery store. The man claims he was shopping at the store and slipped on sugar that had spilled onto the floor. The lawsuit alleges that the man suffered physical injuries due to the fall.
The defendant failed to remove the sugar from the floor in a timely manner and displayed no warning of the alleged hazardous condition, the plaintiff alleges. The man holds the defendant responsible for his injuries suffered in the alleged fall. The plaintiff seeks damages in excess of $75,000 plus any other just relief.
Property and business owners across the United States have a civic duty to provide a safe environment for all who are lawfully on their premises. If this lawsuit is successful, the awarded compensation could be used by the plaintiff to help with medical expenses accrued as a result of his alleged injuries. Those in Nevada who have been injured in an accident, whether due to a slip and fall or another mishap that occurred because of the negligence of another could benefit by seeking the services of an experienced personal injury attorney. If successful, a claim could provide the victim with substantial financial relief.
