In Nevada, business and property owners must adhere to strict rules and regulations that were put in place for the protection of customers and visitors. To adhere to these premises liability laws, foreign objects must be removed from floors, faulty infrastructure must be repaired or warnings must be provided alerting visitors to the potential dangers. Unfortunately due to a lack of funding or resources, maintenance can sometimes be neglected. When the negligence of property or business owners results in injuries to customers, legal action can be taken.
In another state, a woman filed a lawsuit after she was allegedly injured in the parking lot of a restaurant. According to claims, the woman had visited the restaurant and was walking back to her vehicle. Allegedly, she stepped in a hole in the parking lot and fell, twisting her ankle and landing on her knee.
The woman claims her injuries caused her to endure physical impairment and incur medical expenses, as well as pain and suffering. She seeks to hold the restaurant owners responsible over claims that they allowed the dangerous condition to exist, failed to repair the parking lot and failed to provide warning to customers. The plaintiff seeks damages and all just relief.
Unfortunately, thousands of people in the United States are injured every year due to dangerous conditions in and around public establishments. Those in Nevada who have been injured due to the negligence of property or business owners could take matters into their own hands and pursue legal action. By filing a premises liability claim, victims could be compensated for any pain, suffering or financial losses experienced as a result of injuries.
