Nevada Personal Injury Lawyers Representing Accident Victims in Moapa Town
Moapa Town has a population of a little over 1,000 people, but it is the largest town in Clark County by land area. The town is also home to the second and third tallest structures in Nevada – the Moapa Entrevision Tower, which is 1,400 feet, and the Moapa Kemp Tower which is a 1,316 foot television mast.
Keeping Moapa Town Residents Safe
Under Nevada law, a business or homeowner in Moapa Town has a duty to anyone that comes on his or her property. This duty is to keep the visitors safe by inspecting the property for hazards, maintaining the property to keep any hazards from forming, and warning visitors about any known hazards. A failure to do this could lead to injury and a personal injury lawsuit.
A common premises liability case is a slip and fall. This happens when a person falls due to a hazard on another’s property. It could be a wet floor in a grocery store or poorly maintained stairs on the front porch of someone’s home. Slip and fall accidents can result in broken bones or permanent disability. A serious injury such as this can render the victim unable to work for a period of time or forever.
When a property owner’s negligence created a hazard that caused the victim’s fall, the victim may be entitled to compensation depending on the circumstances.
The recoverable damages include:
• Past, present, and future medical bills;
• Past, present, and future inability to earn a living;
• Past, present, and future lost wages;
• Physical pain and suffering
• Mental and emotional pain and suffering
It is important to note that there is a special law in Nevada that limits a premise liability victim’s claim depending on the specific circumstances surrounding the accident. If the victim was over 51 percent responsible for his or her injuries, he or she will be unable to recover any damages from the property owner – even if the property owner was negligent as well.
Because of this distinction in the law, it is important to consult an attorney experienced with premise liability cases, like the ones at Baker, Bertoldo, Baker & Carter. Our slip and fall attorneys will be able to evaluate your case, using their years of experience, and determine whether the client can receive compensation.
