Premises liability is a legal concept that typically comes into play in personal injury cases where the injury was caused by some type of unsafe or defective condition on someone’s property.
Premises Liability Law in Las Vegas, Nevada
For an injured person to bring a premises liability case under Nevada state law, he or she must be able to prove certain conditions:
- The injury must be the result of negligence by the property owner/manager, not the person who was injured.
- The owner/manager must know of the dangerous condition or must be in a position where he or she should have known of the hazard and failed to act. For example, if a customer at a grocery store spills water on the floor and another customer immediately slips on it, the store owner would not have had time to fix the unsafe condition. On the other hand, if a cooling unit was repeatedly leaking water onto the floor and the owner did not repair it, it is a known hazard and the store can be held accountable for slip-and-fall injuries.
