Alleged fall on stairs results in premises liability claim

The holidays are a time when shoppers around the country flock to malls and stores in search of that perfect gift for their friends and family. One fact of life that can get lost in the hustle and bustle of the holiday shopping season is that accidents are going to happen. Some accidents are impossible to anticipate and are unavoidable. However, a lot of accidents can be prevented by taking a few simple precautions such as removing hazards or fixing property that has fallen under disrepair. In the state of Nevada, those who suffer injuries due to hazardous conditions while lawfully visiting a property may have grounds to file a premises liability lawsuit.

Fatal pedestrian accidents in Nevada could reach record highs

Going for a walk or run near crowded city streets can be a dangerous activity. Roadways are becoming more congested as populations increase in Nevada cities. This means there is a greater risk for accidents involving vehicles and pedestrians. Despite laws and needed improvements in pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure throughout the state, pedestrian accidents are on the rise.

Economic growth could mean more trucking accidents

The national economy is continuing to grow, and with this growth comes the need to transport products and merchandise. Businesses in Nevada and across the United States rely on trucks to import and export goods on a daily basis. As the economy grows, so does the number of semi-trucks on roadways across the nation. Due to the size of tractor-trailers, any accident involving these rigs is more likely to be damaging and result in serious injuries. According to recent statistics, fatal trucking accidents occur almost 11 times a day.

Premises liability suit filed after man allegedly falls on steps

Safety codes and regulations have been established in the state of Nevada to protect those that are lawfully visiting local and state-owned property. Just like businesses and other public places, property owned by local governments must be properly maintained and adhere to safety regulations. Unfortunately, negligent maintenance or mistakes made during construction of establishments may present hazards that can cause injuries to visitors. When hazards or negligence cause injuries to those legally on the property, a premises liability claim may be pursued.

3 tips for driving safely during the NFR

As a Las Vegas native, you know that the National Finals Rodeo is here every year. As it approaches this year, you are probably dreading the uptick in traffic. When the NFR gets into full swing, the streets get full of more cars and the sidewalks packed with more pedestrians than usual. 

Pedestrian accidents involving bicyclists continue to climb

In crowded Nevada cities these days, walking and biking are great sources of transportation. By walking and biking, commuters can save money and avoid congested roadways. This means of traveling is not only economical, but also healthy and a great way to stay in shape. Running and biking have become popular forms of recreation as healthier lifestyle choices have become a trend in recent years. Unfortunately, pedestrian accidents are on the rise, so exercising along crowded roadways these days can be very dangerous.
