Las Vegas, Nevada is known for its world-class shopping, dining and entertainment. Tourists from all over the world visit this wonderful city to enjoy all it has to offer. However, patrons can be harmed when objects or substances are left on floors or when the premises are not properly maintained. Fortunately, premises liability laws in Nevada and across the country protect customers and visitors of all public establishments.
A couple in another state filed a lawsuit against a restaurant after the husband was allegedly injured while dining. According to the lawsuit, the couple was dining in a booth in the restaurant. Allegedly, the booth fell on the husband as the couple was exiting the booth.
The lawsuit claims that the man suffered severe injuries that included injuries to his left arm, left hand and fingers. They accuse the defendant of negligence by failing to repair the booth and allowing the dangerous condition to exist. The couple seeks a trial by jury and all just relief.
Although the vast majority of restaurants and stores in Nevada are safe and welcoming, accidents will still happen. Unfortunately, if owners, operators or employees of stores and restaurants fail to adequately do their job and eliminate hazards, customers could be injured and premises liability laws could be violated. Those who have been injured due to the negligence of business or property owners could benefit from discussions with an experienced personal injury attorney. A successfully litigated claim could result in monetary relief to replace lost wages and help with medical expenses.
