North Las Vegas Premises Liability Lawyer

North Las Vegas Premises Liability Attorney

All property owners in North Las Vegas and throughout the state have a few important legal duties to lawful visitors. Both residential and commercial property owners are legally obligated to ensure their properties do not pose any unreasonable safety risks to lawful visitors, such as guests, neighbors, family members, or customers of private businesses. However, slip-and-fall accidents and other injuries might occur if property owners fail to meet this duty of care. If you believe a recent injury on someone else’s property could have been prevented with better care of the property, you likely have grounds for a premises liability claim.

Building Your Premises Liability Claim in North Las Vegas

The purpose of any personal injury claim in North Las Vegas is for the plaintiff to be made as whole as possible again after suffering injuries and economic losses from another party’s negligence or intentional misconduct. Most premises liability claims focus on negligence, or failure to use reasonable care. When it comes to property owners, this might mean failure to address a known safety issue on a property, failure to warn a lawful guest about a known safety issue, or failure to place a visible warning indicator of a known hazard.

To succeed with your premises liability claim, you must prove the defendant was negligent in the care of their property in some manner. Once you establish fault for your damages, you can proceed with claiming compensation for:

  • Medical expenses, both immediate and future, resulting from the accident. If a property owner caused your physical injuries, they are liable for any medical care you require to reach maximum medical recovery.
  • Lost income. When you cannot work due to your injury, the defendant is liable for the income you were unable to earn due to the negligent care of their property. This would apply to future income if you were permanently disabled by your accident.
  • Pain and suffering. Nevada law allows a personal injury plaintiff to claim as much pain and suffering compensation as they deem appropriate to reflect the severity of their experience.

Your premises liability claim could be worth much more than you may think, and the right attorney is an invaluable asset for maximizing your case award. If you want to explore your recovery options with the help of an attorney you can trust, it is vital to reach out to an experienced North Las Vegas premises liability attorney as soon as possible.

Personal Injury Lawyer FAQs

Q: What Are the Defenses to Premises Liability?

A: If the hazard that causes a premises liability injury was open and obvious, then it is unlikely for the property owner to face liability for the resulting damages. If the property owner warned the plaintiff of the hazard that caused their injury and the plaintiff willfully ignored the warning, this could also form an effective defense for the defendant. Additionally, the premises liability laws do not extend any legal protection to intruders, trespassers, or other unlawful visitors to private property if they suffer injuries on the property.

Q: What Is the Statute of Limitations for Premises Liability?

A: A premises liability claim is a type of personal injury claim. The statute of limitations or time limit for filing a premises liability claim or any other personal injury suit in the state is two years, starting on the date of the injury. You have two years from the date of your premises liability accident to file your civil claim against the property owner. It will take time to gather the evidence and documentation needed to win your case, and the full amount of your claimable damages may not be immediately noticeable. It’s advisable to seek legal counsel you can trust as soon as possible after your injury to have the greatest chance of success in your recovery efforts.

Q: How Much Can I Claim in Compensation for a Premises Liability Suit?

A: The total potential value of any civil claim for damages hinges on the scope and severity of the harm done to the plaintiff. You have the right to seek full repayment of lost income, lost future earning power, medical expenses, and future medical treatment costs. You can also hold a defendant accountable for the pain and suffering they caused, and state law does not limit how much you can claim. Consult an experienced North Las Vegas premises liability attorney for an accurate estimate of your case’s total potential value.

Q: How Long Will It Take to Complete My Premises Liability Claim?

A: If the defendant is clearly responsible for your damages and you have an experienced attorney representing you, it should take just a couple of weeks for you to finalize your case and secure compensation for your losses. However, if the defendant denies liability or other factors prevent you from settling the case, litigation will take much longer to complete. Your attorney can offer an estimate of your claim’s most likely timetable.

Q: What Are Attorneys’ Fees for a North Las Vegas Premises Liability Attorney?

A: The attorneys at Easton & Easton accept personal injury clients with contingency fee agreements. With this billing arrangement, the client only pays an attorney’s fee once the attorney wins their case. Additionally, their fee is a portion of the case award, and there is no fee if the attorney is unsuccessful with the case for any reason. Our goal is to ensure legal counsel is accessible to those who need it most, regardless of their personal financial situations.

The attorneys at Easton & Easton have helped many past clients overcome some of the most challenging civil suits in the North Las Vegas area, including those that fall within the purview of premises liability law.

Coming out of my first auto accident as an adult, a very difficult and scary time to navigate and understand, I was so incredibly thankful to have been put in contact with Easton & Easton.

I could not be more pleased with the services provided by the Law Offices of W. Douglas Easton.

Matt Easton then worked my case, and because of his dedication, experience and expertise I received a settlement that was larger than I EVER thought possible. It was truly astounding!

Ashlee A.

Retaining Easton and Easton was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made! From the initial consultation to our final meeting, they were nothing short of exceptional. I was forced to retain their services after firing my previous attorney for not handling the case properly. I dealt with Gabriel and Brian (partner) exclusively throughout the case. They did as promised and were great communicators throughout the entire process. I will recommend them to anyone I know going through a personal injury case. They were ultimately able to untangle the mess caused by my previous lawyer and get a result that I was extremely happy with. Their staff is exceptional as well and provided top notch customer service. Amera was also extremely helpful and easy to deal with as well.

If you are ever in need of a personal defense attorney Easton & Easton is the firm to represent you!
