Trip and Fall Accident Lawyer in Nevada

A trip or fall is not just embarrassing; in some cases, it can result in severe, life-threatening injuries. A trip and fall can occur at any time and any place. A poorly lit stairwell can conceal a trip hazard; a wet floor in a grocery store or an uneven surface in a parking lot can all trigger a serious trip or fall. Depending on the age of the victim, any medical conditions he or she has, the surface on which he or she falls, and other such factors, a trip and fall can result in bruises, strains and sprains, broken bones, or much more severe injuries.

Trip and Fall Explained

There are two main types of falls that can result from a dangerous surface: a slip or a trip. A “slip” occurs when the person’s feet lose traction with the ground and slide out in front of the person. This causes the person to fall backwards. Head, neck, and spine injuries are very common with slips.

A “trip,” on the other hand, occurs when the person’s leg or foot is entangled or restrained, causing the person to fall forward. Face injuries are common, as are hand and arm injuries if the person attempts to break his or her fall.

It is important to know why exactly a fall accident happened. When you bring a trip and fall accident claim against a business or a property owner, you will be required to prove that their unsafe actions/inactions contributed to the accident.

Trip and Fall Statistics

Did you know that trip and fall accidents are one of the most common causes of serious injuries? Many people do not realize just how often people are injured in tripping or slipping accidents. The National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI) hascompiled the following statistics concerning trips or slips and falls:

  • Slips and falls account for over 1 million hospital emergency room visits per year;
  • Fractures occur in 5% of all individuals who fall;
  • 22% of slip and fall incidents lead to more than 31 days missed from work;
  • Compensation and medical costs associated with employee slip/fall accidents is approximately $70 billion each year;
  • Hip fractures are the most serious consequences of falls and lead to the greatest number of health problems and deaths;
  • One of every three individuals over the age of 65 will experience a fall in any given year; half of those that do will experience multiple falls.

What You Should Know About Trip and Fall Accident Liability In Nevada

Trip and fall claims fall under the umbrella of premises liability. If you or your loved one was injured on someone’s property, you may be able to hold them responsible for your damages. That being said, liability is not automatic. A business owner or property owner in Nevada is not responsible for every trip and fall or slip and fall that happens on their premises.

Instead, businesses/property owners are only liable if the accident occurred because of their negligence. In other words, trip and fall accident victims must prove that the property owner failed to exercise reasonable care and, as a consequence, contributed to the accident. Every trip and fall accident injury in Nevada should be investigated without delay. Our top-rated Las Vegas premises liability lawyers will help you gather and prepare the evidence you need to prove liability.

What Should I Do After a Trip and Fall Accident?

If you have suffered a trip and fall accident, you need to obtain immediate medical attention for your injuries. Even if you do not think you are injured, it is beneficial for your health – and for any future claim for damages – to get checked out by a medical professional. You should also:

  • Report the Trip and Fall Accident: Ask to make a report with the business or place in which you fell. Be sure to describe in detail where you fell, what you believe you slipped on, and what injuries you suffered. You should notify the business or property owner as soon as is practical.
  • Get Professional Medical Care: Make sure to provide the same details you did to the business to the medical professional that evaluates you. Not only do you need to protect your own well-being, but you cannot file a trip and fall accident lawsuit unless you see a lawyer.
  • Document as Much Evidence as Possible: Remember and write down as many details as you can, including what business in which you fell, where you fell, what you slipped or tripped on, whether there were any warning signs, etc.
