Slipping on a wet floor, tripping on a broken staircase or being bitten by an untrained dog are all scenarios that can lead to a premises liability case. Premises liability law holds property owners in Nevada accountable for maintaining a safe environment for visitors and guests. This article will cover the particulars of premises liability law and how having an experienced Nevada law firm, like Friedman & Throop, is essential to navigating these types of cases to ensure fair compensation to the injured party.

What is a Premises Liability Law?

Premises liability law falls under the umbrella of personal injury law. It holds property owners responsible for injuries sustained due to a fall or negligence on their part. Nevada property owners have a responsibility to maintain a safe environment for guests and visitors while they are on their property. If the property owner fails to do so and it results in an injury or illness due to dangerous conditions, they can be held liable for the accident. The injured party may have grounds for a premises liability claim.
