Premises Liability: Explained

When you patronize a business or otherwise enter another person’s property in Nevada, you have the fair, justified expectation that you will be kept reasonably safe. Unfortunately, that does not always happen. This is where the concept of premises liability comes into play. Under premises liability laws in Nevada, property owners and property occupiers (businesses) have a responsibility to keep their premises in reasonably safe condition for customers and other permitted guests. If an accident happens because of an unreasonably dangerous safety hazard, a property owner or business may be legally responsible for the victim’s damages.

  • Elevator/Escalator Injuries: Elevators and escalators in shopping malls, office buildings, and other public places must be regularly inspected and maintained. We fight for justice for people who have sustained injuries due to malfunctions of elevators/escalators. 
  • Casino Injury Claims: Nevada is home to many of the world’s most impressive casinos. Unfortunately, serious accidents can happen at casinos if proper precautions are not taken. Many casino accident claims in Nevada fall under premises liability law. 
  • Negligent Security: In Nevada, businesses and property owners also have a duty to provide adequate security. We take on cases where lack of security measures has led to assaults or other criminal attacks. Contact our Nevada negligent security attorney today for help. 
  • Swimming Pool Accidents: Swimming pools—whether public pool, commercial pool, or residential pool—pose serious safety risks if not properly maintained. Notably, young children face the highest risk. If you or your loved one was hurt or killed in a swimming pool accident, our Nevada premises liability attorneys are more than ready to help. 
  • Animal Attacks: Property owners can be held liable for injuries caused by animal attacks on their premises—particularly if they were aware of the animal’s aggressive behavior and did not take adequate precautions to protect visitors. A non-owner of a dog may bear liability for an attack on the grounds of premises liability. 
  • Toxic Exposure: We also deal with cases where individuals have been exposed to hazardous substances like mold, lead paint, or chemical spills. These cases require demonstrating that exposure occurred due to negligence in handling or failing to warn about the dangerous condition. Toxic exposure cases can be among the most complex types of premises claims. 

Know the Elements of a Premises Liability Claim Against a Property Owner

In Nevada, a property owner/property occupier is not automatically responsible for an accident that happens on its premises. It is crucial that injured victims understand that liability will not be assumed as a matter of law. Instead, injured victims must prove all of the elements of a premises liability claim in order to establish fault and hold the property owner/property occupier accountable. Here are the four central elements of premises liability in Nevada: 

  1. A Duty of Care: The foundation of any premises liability case is establishing that the property owner or occupier had a duty of care toward the injured party. In Nevada, this duty varies depending on the status of the visitor—invitee, licensee, or trespasser. For invitees (those invited for business purposes, like customers in a store) and licensees (those allowed for social reasons), the highest duty of care is owed. In Nevada, only a very limited duty of care is owed to a trespasser. 
  2. Breach of Duty: Once the duty of care is established, it must be shown that the property owner or occupier failed to meet this duty. A breach of duty is the crux of any premises liability claim. In effect, the injured victim has to prove that the defendant (business or property owner) was negligent. What constitutes negligence is highly case specific. It could be failing to clean up a spill in a timely manner, not repairing a broken step, or not adequately lighting a dark staircase. 
  3. Causation: Without causation, there is no liability in a premises liability claim. For example, proving that you were hurt at a casino and that there were unsafe conditions at that casino is actually not sufficient to prove fault in a premises liability claim. Injured victims must also establish a causal connection between the unreasonable safety hazard and their injuries. Causation should not be underestimated. It is one of the keys to proving fault. 
  4. Damages: Finally, injured victims must prove their damages to bring a successful premises liability claim in Nevada. These damages. can include medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other losses. Your premises liability compensation in Nevada will be determined, primarily, based on the extent of your damages. 

A Note On Comparative Negligence: Under Nevada law (NRS 41.141), premises liability claims are subject to a modified comparative negligence standard. Each party to an accident can be held liable for their “share” of the blame. A victim may even be held partially at fault for his or her own damages. If you are found to be partially at fault for your own accident, your compensation will be reduced by your degree of fault. However, if your degree of blame is 51 percent or higher, you may be denied any recovery. 

Recovering Compensation through a Premises Liability Claim in Nevada

In Nevada, injured victims have the right to seek financial compensation for economic losses and intangible damages. To secure a full and fair settlement, it is imperative that your damages are well-documented. Defendants and insurers consistently attempt to settle claims for less. Our Nevada premises liability attorneys go above and beyond to help injured victims maximize their recovery. Through a premises liability claim, you may be entitled to monetary damages for: 

  • Ambulance costs and emergency room care; 
  • Hospital bills and other types of medical costs; 
  • Physical rehabilitative care; 
  • Loss of wages and loss of earning potential; 
  • Pain and suffering and emotional anguish; 
  • Physical disability and physical impairment; and
  • Wrongful death of a family member. 

What is the Statute of Limitations for a Premises Liability Lawsuit?

You do not have an unlimited period of time to take action for a premises liability claim. Under Nevada law (NRS 11.190), there is a two-year statute of limitations. What happens if you fail to file a premises liability lawsuit within a timely manner? You may lose your right to recover financial compensation for your injuries at all. Although two years may feel like plenty of time, you can be sure that business, property owners, and their insurers waste no time building their defense. Consult with a Nevada premises liability lawyer as soon as possible after a bad accident.
