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.

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 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.
