Slip and Fall Attorney
Slip and fall cases can be described as those where accidents or injuries happen one someone else’s property. Property owners are required to alert visitors to hazardous conditions, especially those that may result in an injury. If they ignore this legal obligation of theirs, and have no warning signs posted by obstructions or dangers, they may be held liable for the damages that take place, and may have legal action taken against them accordingly.
This pursuance of a case is very common with slip and fall accidents. More often than not, slip and falls are caused by wet floors that have not been properly marked as a hazard. This failure to warn visitors of the potential danger counts as negligence, and the injuries that take place could be prevented, but instead, will not be the property owner’s responsibility.
When you are unaware of potential hazards due to inadequate signage, that would be considered a case for a personal injury claim. This includes if the property owner was aware of unsafe conditions and made no effort to warn others of the hazards, make reasonable repairs, or take appropriate action.

If you have experienced a slip and fall accident, and have incurred an injury because of it, you may have a case. The negligent actions (or lack of actions) taken by the owner of the property can be used as evidence in your case to earn you fair and full compensation to cover your medical treatment accrued due to the injury.
The Las Vegas, Nevada personal injury attorneys at Eric Blank Injury Attorneys want to be there for you. If we can prove that the property owner did not take reasonable steps to provide a safe environment for you, you have the right to demand financial recovery from the person or company. In most cases, the cost of your medical treatment, lost wages, out-of-pocket expenses, and pain and suffering will be covered by the building owner’s insurance policy.
In order to protect your rights and increase your chances of receiving compensation, the following steps will help establish your losses and file an efficient lawsuit against the at-fault party.
- Remember to immediately take pictures of the scene. This prevents the owner to claim exaggeration on your part. Photographing the property will also prevent anyone from tampering with the scene or make quick repairs to cover up the incident.
- Seek immediate medical treatment. By seeking emergency services, a record of the incident and your injuries will be established.
- Be sure to obtain any contact information of the witness present during the incident.
- Report the incident to the owner of the property. Once the owner knows about the incident, he or she can get the issue taken care of to avoid any other injuries of another individual.
