The #1 Las Vegas Slip and Fall Lawyer
Many debilitating injuries arise from people slipping or tripping on wet, slippery or greasy surfaces as well as unexpected holes in sidewalks. These injuries are often the responsibility of property owners or the government entities responsible for maintaining public areas.
If you are on someone else’s property and you injure yourself as a result of a dangerous condition on the property, the land owner or business proprietor may be liable for your injuries.

Building Your Case for Compensation
When you work with our Las Vegas injury attorneys, we have a specialized process in place for successfully building your case for compensation. We take calculated steps to use the legal discovery system to your advantage to build strong evidence to show the other side why you deserve the compensation you are asking for. First, your injury attorney works with you to gather all the facts surrounding the incident, including the initial police or injury report. If possible, they may also investigate the actual scene of the accident. Next, we utilize our extensive network of specialists, including accident reconstruction experts, medical specialists, vocational experts, and forensic specialists to help us use the facts of your accident to prove what is asserted in your claim.
We may also work with your doctor to identify your prognosis and a complete care plan for recovery. Throughout your case, we file essential legal documents, including the initial complaint, a summons, and motions if necessary. Our injury lawyers also work to diligently and accurately value your claim. Valuing your case is a crucial part of getting the full amount of compensation you are owed, so we make sure to include all categories of damages possible, including both economic and non-economic damages like pain and suffering and emotional distress. While we are building your case, we also participate in negotiations with the other side in hopes of getting you a settlement before trial. However, we are willing to take your case to trial if the other party doesn’t agree to compensate you fairly for your injuries. It’s important not to delay in contacting an experienced injury attorney to begin working on your case immediately.
Don’t Settle with Insurance Companies
We know how insurance companies try to get you to sign a settlement quickly without allowing you the opportunity to fully understand the extent of your losses from a slip-and-fall accident. Minimizing legitimate claims is how the insurance company makes money, and we are dedicated to making sure this never happens to our clients.
With our skilled personal injury lawyers in Las Vegas, you have the peace of mind knowing that you have a strong advocate by your side to fight to protect your rights and get you the compensation you deserve.

Slip and Fall Categories
There are four generalized categories under which fall down accidents are grouped:
- Trip-and-fall, where there is a foreign object in the walking path – like a stack of books in a walkway that is normally clear;
- Stump-and-fall, where there is an impediment in the walking surface – like a power cord that runs between two cubicles that weren’t there previously;
- Step-and-fall, where there is an unexpected failure or hole in the walking surface, such as a missing manhole cover or utility cover in the sidewalk;
- Slip-and-fall, in which the interface of the shoe and the floor fails – you slip and fall on someone’s wet or greasy floor and there are no warning signs posted anywhere.
Causes of Slip-and-Falls
Most slip and fall accidents occur in a business setting. These events fall under the category of premise liability because they are generally caused by the business or property owner not adequately maintaining the area where the event occurred.
- Damaged walkways, driveways, or paths leading to the business. This includes sidewalks that have shifted and potholes in any of these areas.
- Unmarked danger zones. This includes failing to post wet floor signs, notifying the public of uneven pavement or flooring, or other dangerous areas to walk in.
- Stairways that have not been properly maintained. This includes missing or broken handrails and failure to put slip-resistant coverings on the stairs.
- Inadequate of missing lighting in walk areas and stairwells.
- Failure to remove snow and ice and treat ground accordingly to prevent it from becoming slippery once the snow and ice are removed.
- Failure to keep walkways free from debris or clutter making it difficult to maneuver.
Types of Injuries Caused by Slip and Fall
Many people put their arms out when they fall to brace themselves. This can lead to serious injuries of the shoulder, elbow, and wrist.
An abrupt fall can cause a hard landing on your tailbone and shock your lower spine.
Many falls cause damage to this area because of how the body twists when it slips.

If you have been involved in a slip and fall accident, it is very important to file an accident report with the business where the event occurred. If possible, you or anyone you are with should take pictures with their phone from the area where the accident took place. It is also important to write down everything that you can remember that lead up to the accident. All of this information will be very important when you file a claim for compensation for your injuries.
Adam Kutner Reviews & Testimonials
“My accident – it was – it was very just tragic because it was the only car that I had – I mean just – it came at a wrong time period of my life.
I was very happy with the settlement that I received through Adam Kutner.
They walked me through finding a doctor, they walked me up to the doctor’s office. We called and asked them will you be able to fix my back in way shape or form. And pretty much, yes, she did help me find a good doctor.
I would recommend Adam Kutner to my friends in family because I think he is a great guy. His team works very, very professionally. And their office – their focus is basically on you when you come in to the attorney, when you first walk in, when you first come in for a consultant, everything, everything falls right into place.”
