Internet viral videos that make light of people tripping and falling usually leave out what follows—injuries, hospital bills, and sometimes death. A trip and fall can be serious; and if it occurs at a place of business or a retail establishment, the cause of your fall is important to note. If you tripped on something in the walkways of the store, your injuries and losses should be covered by the store or business. Call us today: 702-252-0055.
If this happened to you Ladah Law Firm, PLLC, knows how to help. As a Las Vegas premises liability lawyer, Ramzey Ladah will protect your rights and your claim to compensation for your injuries. Maybe it was a frayed piece of carpet, or a stack of pants that hadn’t been put on a shelf yet, the store is responsible to maintain a safe environment for you to shop. When they are negligent in this regard you shouldn’t have to pay for their oversight.
Even though it may seem obvious to you that the improperly placed clothing rack tripped you as you walked by, the store and lawyers for their insurance company will attempt to show that it was entirely your fault. They may even claim that the danger was obvious, making you negligent for not paying attention. Fortunately the Nevada Supreme Court took that defense away from merchants and businesses, claiming that their liability remained if proper barriers and signage are not employed. We know how to assign liability to the negligent party, thus preserving your claim.
