In Nevada, the law requires property owners to take adequate precautions to keep their premises safe for guests. That means landlords, businesses, and owners need to prevent hazards, fix problems, and warn others about unsafe conditions that could harm them. Unfortunately, not everyone who owns or manages property does what they should, and the result can be a devastating accident for you.
If you have suffered injuries on someone else’s property, you shouldn’t be left to pay for the damages. It’s not right, and it’s not fair.

What Is Premises Liability?
Premises liability is the idea that someone in control of property owes a certain level of care to their guests. That means if they’ve invited you onto their property, or you’re on the property with their permission, they need to keep the premises reasonably safe. For example, if you go shopping at a business, the owner or manager needs to ensure that there are no broken stairs, no slippery floors, and no other hazards that could hurt you. If there are dangers like these, and they do hurt you, those in control of the property may be liable for your injuries.
Compensation in a Premises Liability Claim
Each premises liability case is unique, and compensation will vary between cases. If you’re wondering how much your case is worth, speak with a premises liability lawyer in Las Vegas about the details of your accident and injuries. Premises liability compensation can cover:

Nevada’s Time Limit on Premises Liability Lawsuits
As a general rule, you need to file any premises liability lawsuit in Nevada within two years of the accident. If you don’t file within the time the law allows (known as the statute of limitations), you may lose your right to bring a lawsuit.
