Las Vegas is one of the top tourists destinations not only in Nevada but across the globe. Home to a multitude of world-class restaurants, shops and attractions, this beautiful city leaves a lasting impression on nearly every person who visits. Thanks to premises liability laws, tourists do not have to fear for their safety when visiting these wonderful attractions. Despite these laws, thousands of people are injured across the country every year due to hazardous conditions in public establishments.
A man in another state has filed a lawsuit after he allegedly fell and suffered injuries while visiting a pet supply store. According to the lawsuit, the man was shopping in the store and making his way to the checkout counter when he encountered a substance on the floor. Allegedly, the substance caused the man to slip and fall.
The man claims he suffered severe injuries and disabilities as a result of the fall. He seeks to hold the store responsible over claims that the store owners allowed the hazardous condition to exist and failed to provide a warning to customers. The plaintiff seeks monetary damages in excess of $1 million.
Unfortunately, maintenance and basic cleaning duties in stores and restaurants can be sometimes neglected, leaving unsafe conditions for customers. In Nevada, those who are injured due to the negligence of property or business owners can purse legal action. By filing a premises liability claim, victims and families could receive much-needed compensation that could be used to pay medical expenses and replace lost wages.
