    What is premise liability?

    Premises liability is a concept that holds property owners responsible for an injury someone sustains when on their property. Premises liability can apply to residential and public property; however, it’s important to remember that certain conditions must be met for a successful premises liability case.

    If you sustain a personal injury on someone else’s property, you may be entitled to compensation for the following:

    • Medical care expenses from your injury
    • Loss of wages or loss of future wages
    • Pain and suffering

    To have a successful premises liability case, it’s essential to determine whether the property owner or business’s breach of duty caused your injury. Simply put, breach of duty means that the location’s owner did not meet their responsibility to provide a safe environment. Proving a violation of responsibility will include the following:

    • Proof that a dangerous condition was present on the premises
    • The property owner should have been aware of the hazard.
    • Evidence that an accident happened and was a direct result of the hazardous conditions of the property.
    • Proof that the victim sustained a personal injury and/or other damages as a direct result of the accident.

    What does a violation of premises liability look like?

    Whether in Vegas for a fun weekend or at a convention for business, an accident resulting in a personal injury can shake up your time in Las Vegas. If you were involved in an accident at an event or business, there is a strong possibility that you could have a viable premises liability claim (such as a convention injury). Property owners open to the public have a responsibility to ensure a safe environment. Some examples of a violation of premises liability include, but are not limited to:

    Overservice of Alcohol

    Every state has its laws on the service of alcohol at events, bars, clubs, and restaurants. Staff at a property that serves alcohol is responsible for monitoring and noticing the overserving of alcohol to patrons. Whether you or another patron are overserved, this could violate state liquor laws and create a hazardous condition that the property owners may be liable for.

    Hazardous Property Conditions

    A venue can create a hazardous environment in numerous ways. Malfunctioning elevators and escalators, loose guardrails, uneven floors, and more can create a hazard wherein the venue would be responsible for a personal injury you sustained on the property. Additionally, slippery floors, worn or loose carpeting, and potholes would also hold a venue responsible if an accident were to occur as a result.

    Staffing Violations

    Proper staffing can be essential in mitigating the risk of a dangerous scenario or potential hazard. Undertrained staff may need to learn the appropriate actions to take to ensure a safe environment is maintained for patrons. At an event with large crowds, a business or venue may also require additional staff to maintain a safe environment free of potential hazards.

    Safety Violations

    Safety violations typically include health, building, and fire safety codes. Suppose a venue or business is not up to code, and an accident occurs due to a safety violation. In this case, the venue or company may be responsible for your injury.
