Under Nevada Law, property owners are responsible for maintaining and securing their property in a reasonably safe condition. When a property owner fails to maintain their property in a reasonably safe condition, the property owner is responsible for notifying occupants and persons on the property of any dangerous condition that exists.
Premises liability exists when a person is injured as a result of owner failing to maintain the property in a reasonably safe condition or failing to properly notify occupants of a dangerous that exists on the property.
Slip and fall injuries often occur when a dangerous condition exists and the owner fails to fix the problem or when the property owner fails to warn others about the danger. Our attorney’s have had success at pursuing property owners for client’s injured as a result of the owner’s negligence.

Premises liability and negligent security
Property owners, including hotels, casinos and apartment complexes are also responsible for providing a secure property for those visiting or living on the property. Negligent security measures can result in assaults that should be avoided provided the property owner had adequate security. In addition, the failure of the property owner to have and maintain adequate lighting, performing background checks on security personnel, working security cameras, effective locks and other measures can be used to protect the safety of guests and occupants and will provide evidence that the property owner was negligent for any such injuries caused to you. When these safety measures are overlooked, innocent people, such as yourself, can be injured.
