Nevada is famous for its world-class dining, shopping and entertainment venues. The owners of these establishments are obligated by law to provide a safe environment for all customers. However, sometimes routine maintenance can be neglected, causing the property to become hazardous and capable of causing injuries. Suffering a fall because of dangerous conditions can lead to spinal cord injuries and a whole host of other serious afflictions.
A woman in another state filed a lawsuit after she was allegedly injured while entering a store. According to the lawsuit, the woman visited a cellphone store, and as she was walking into the store, she encountered ice near the door. The woman claimed she slipped on the ice and fell.
Allegedly, the woman broke her arm in the fall and required surgery to mend the fracture. She also claims to have suffered other severe and permanent injuries. The lawsuit seeks to hold the defendant accountable over claims that the business failed to remove the ice and snow on the store premises and also failed to provide a warning of the hazardous condition. The woman seeks damages in excess of $50,000 and all just relief.
Although the vast majority of public establishments are safe and welcoming places, there’s always a chance for customers to encounter hazards capable of causing accidents and serious injuries. Those in Nevada who have suffered spinal cord injuries or other injuries due to the negligence of another party could benefit by seeking the services of an experienced litigator. By filing a claim in civil court, victims could be compensated for their documented damages, including pain and suffering.
