Aliante is a master-planned community, which is located in North Las Vegas, Nevada. The community is home to thousands of residents and includes a mix of approximately 6,500 homes, commercial centers, shopping, dining, and the new Aliante Station Casino. The community is sprawled over more than 1,900 acres and more than 400 acres are dedicated to a mix of recreational and public facilities. These include a golf club, three city parks, a Nature Discovery Park with a scenic lake, and a 24-mile interconnecting trail system.

In short, Aliante is built as a city within a city. As with all cities, however, the parties responsible for maintaining the community have a duty to make sure that areas are safe for residents and visitors to the area. This is particularly true for recreational and public facilities, such as parks, golf courses, and trails. Accidents can occur when property owners and maintenance crews do not take adequate measures to ensure that areas are safe and free from dangerous hazards

Unfortunately, accidents from dangerous conditions on properties occur far too often, and the public suffers. If you have suffered an injury at Aliante, the experienced Aliante personal injury and accident lawyers at the Ladah Law Firm can help you recover damages.

Types of Premises Liability Accidents

  • Slip-and-fall accidents on wet or slippery floors;
  • Tripping on foreign objects, including wires, cords, and
  • Tripping in potholes or broken sidewalks;
  • Dog bites;
  • Injuries to children;
  • Drowning and near drowning injuries in swimming pools;
  • Slipping & falling around wet surfaces around pools;
  • Falling on stairs as a result of broken handrails or defective stairs; or
  • Tripping on ripped or bunched carpet.

Property Owners’ Duties to Others

Property owners–and those that they hire to maintain a property–are required to keep a property in a safe and hazard-free condition. This means that warning signs or fences should be put around bodies of water, debris and objects in walkways should be removed, dog owners should keep their dogs restrained in the event that someone enters the property legally, and all surfaces, ranging from stairs to sidewalk to carpet and more, should be maintained and free from defects.

If a property owner does not maintain their property in a safe condition and another party suffers harm as a direct result, the victim may bring forth a suit for damages against the property owner if they can prove that:

A dangerous condition on the property existed;

  • The dangerous condition was the proximate cause of the victim’s injuries;
  • The property owner knew or should have known about the dangerous condition; and
  • The property owner failed to remedy the condition within a reasonable amount of time.

Keep in mind that there are special rules for injuries to trespassers and to children. Trespassers are not owed a duty of care, other than that the property owner must refrain from willful and wanton harm. Children, on the other hand, are protected even if they were trespassing under the doctrine of attractive nuisance. This doctrine holds that because of a child’s young age and inability to reason and perceive dangers, if an object or circumstance exists on a property that would be considered “attractive” to the average child, and the child is harmed as a result, the property owner can still be held liable.

Why You Should Work with an Aliante Premises Liability Lawyer

Proving that your injuries would not have occurred but for the negligence of a property owner can be a challenging thing to do. Indeed, not only will you have to prove two of the toughest elements listed above (that the property owner knew or should have known of the condition and failed to repair it within a reasonable amount of time), but you will also need to prove the extent of your damages as well. Even if your medical bills clearly indicate how much treatment you’ve received, the extent of your noneconomic damages, like pain or suffering, or other economic damages, like the future value of your lost wages, may be debated. When this is the case, having an experienced attorney on your side who can advocate for you, work with accident reconstruction experts, and valuate and negotiate your claim can be crucial for recovering your full compensation amount.
