Slip and fall accidents are commonly considered simple mistakes, but when a person suffers a severe injury, there is nothing simple about it. Under Nevada law, property owners and landlords are obligated to keep their premises reasonably safe for others on the property. If you or a loved one has suffered an injury, or worse, due to the dangerous conditions of a public or private property, you may be legally entitled to seek compensation from the negligent owner or landlord.
After a slip and fall accident, it is important to gather evidence of the hazardous condition that led to the incident.

In order to have a valid personal injury case, the slip and fall accident must have occurred as a result of unsafe conditions on another’s property that could have been prevented. Other common elements of a legitimate slip and fall case include the following:
- The property owner or landlord knew or should have known about the dangerous condition on the premises,
- The dangerous condition was not open or obvious,
- The property owner or landlord was negligent of the condition or failed to correct the condition,
- The victim suffered an injury as a result of the condition.
Slip and fall accidents may occur in hotels, casinos, restaurants, walkways, and other public properties that are poorly maintained. Dangerous conditions that often cause slip and fall accidents include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Slippery floors
- Cluttered walkways
- Poor lighting
- Defective flooring, such as broken tiles, loose carpeting, or cracked pavement
- Exposed electrical wires and cords
- Lack of clear warning signs
After a slip and fall accident, it is important to gather evidence of the hazardous condition that led to the incident. Photographs of the accident scene, surveillance footage, eyewitness testimony, and an incident report can all be useful in proving your case.
