Hotel Injury Lawyer in Nevada

las vegas hotel pool
To say Las Vegas is a popular place is an understatement. In fact,statistics show that during 2014 over 38 million people visited Sin City. Over 87 percent of Las Vegas’ more than 150,000 hotel rooms were occupied during the year. Unfortunately, hotels are a prime location for injuries to happen. These injuries can include:


  • Slips or trips and falls on slippery, uneven, or dangerous surfaces;
  • Falls down poorly designed or illuminated stairways;
  • Thefts of personal property from hotel rooms;
  • Being struck by vehicles or carts while on hotel property; and
  • Being the victim of a violent crime on hotel property.


When you or a loved one is injured in a hotel accident, you need a skilled attorney in order to recover the maximum amount of compensation. An attorney experienced in premises liability cases can help make sure you are compensated for your injuries. The attorneys at Ladah Law Firm, PLLC have experience in these type of cases & can be reached at: 702-252-0055.


Basics of a Premises Liability Case


A premises liability case holds a property owner responsible for injuries that occur to others who are on his or her property. The elements of a successful premises liability case include:


  • Showing the injured party (or “plaintiff”) was lawfully present on the property. This is important because a plaintiff’s request for compensation can be denied if the plaintiff was trespassing or was not otherwise permitted to be on the property. For instance, a person who tries to sneak into a hotel through a back door and is injured by the door may not be able to recover any compensation.
  • Showing that the property owner owed a duty to the plaintiff: Where a business owner invites others to come onto his or her property, that business owner owes a duty to the general public to make a reasonable inspection of his or her property and correct or warn of any hazards that are obvious or that should be obvious. The “duty of care” can vary from case to case, as can the sort of steps a property owner should take.
  • Showing that the property owner failed to comply with his or her duty: This usually involves showing that the hotel owner did not do all that was reasonable in order to prevent the injury. What is “reasonable” will depend on the particular case, but will usually consist of at least noticing obvious hazards and taking steps to warn guests ofobvious hazards present in the hotel.
  • Quantifying the plaintiff’s injuries: Through the production of medical bills and other objective evidence, the plaintiff will show the monetary extent of his or her injuries. This is usually the amount of compensation that the plaintiff asks the court to award him or her as compensation.


Did a Hotel Neglect Its Duty of Care Owed to You?

taking precautions against liability issues
If you believe that a hotel (hotel management) neglected the duty of care owed to you, and that this breach of duty was the direct cause of your hotel injury, you can file a premises liability suit against the hotel. However, before you file your suit, you will need to gather evidence to prove the breach. Examples of hotel negligence that could lead to one of the myriad hotel injuries listed above might include:

  • Failing to maintain a reasonable security system;
  • Giving out guest information to another party;
  • Failing to maintain working fire systems, including sprinklers and fire alarms;
  • Failing to repair defective conditions on a hotel property, such as a broken elevator or faulty electrical outlet; and
  • Failing to maintain grounds in safe conditions (i.e. wipe up spills, remove debris, ensure wiring is out of the way to prevent trips, etc.).

This list is not exhaustive; there are many things that may fall into the category of “negligent” depending upon a given situation.

Damages Available in a Premises Liability Case

If you are harmed on hotel property and can prove that your injuries would not have occurred but for a breach of the duty of care owed to you, you will be able to seek damages for the full extent of losses you have suffered. While the amount of damages will depend on your degree of injuries and therefore will vary on a case-by-case basis, some of the most common damage types include:

  • Medical expenses;
  • Lost wages;
  • Future economic costs (i.e. future lost wages); and
  • Pain and suffering.

If you have questions about the damages available to you, our attorneys can provide you with accurate answers.

Why You Should Work with a Premises Liability Attorney

working with a hotel injury lawyer
If you have been harmed in a hotel and want to seek compensation for your injuries, our attorneys strongly recommend working with a legal professional. One of the most pressing reasons for doing this is that you can guarantee that the hotel has a lawyer, or set of lawyers, of its own that will be ready to dismiss your claim and fight back. When you hire an experienced attorney to represent you, you improve your chances of success and of being able to recover the compensation that you deserve.

In addition to leveling the playing field, remember that in order to win a premises liability case, you will have to present evidence that satisfies the criteria listed above. Gathering this evidence can be difficult to do, and may involve the hotel handing over security tapes. Our lawyers understand how to gather evidence, and how to get evidence when it is not immediately being offered. We also know how to build strong cases, valuate your damages, and aggressively negotiate for a settlement. Contact Ladah Law Firm, PLLC (702-252-0055) after a hotel injury in Nevada. We have helped numerous individuals recover monetary compensation for their injuries and can help you do the same. Recovering from a hotel injury can be a long, difficult process – and there is no reason why you should face this alone.
