PREMISES LIABILITY in Las Vegas Law Firm
Premises Liability Lawyer, Las Vegas, Nevada
Premises liability law is a very broad topic that can cover many different situations. It encompasses everything from slip and falls to dog bite injuries, and it’s not always easy to know who is liable for what in these cases. To help you understand this complex area of the law, Southwest Injury Law put together some information on-premises liability: what it is, how it works, and who might be liable for your injury claim.
Premises liability is the law that determines who can be held liable for injuries or accidents that happen on someone else’s property. The premise owner, like a business owner, has an obligation to provide safe premises and warn of any potential dangers. When they fail to do so, they are generally considered negligent in their duty to protect visitors from harm and will be found legally responsible for these injuries.
This means there are two main categories when it comes to looking at who might be liable: either the individual (premise) performer–the one with control over the condition causing injuries such as maintenance workers; or business owners acting through employees.
By law, property owners are required to keep their property in a safe condition, free from hazards that may cause harm to other people. When victims suffer serious injuries due to hazardous conditions on someone else’s property, the responsible property owner, business owner, manager or others may be able to be held liable for the damages that result.
Identifying all of the responsible parties and contributing factors, and proving liability, however, can often be challenging.
