SPEAK WITH A REPRESENTATIVE NOW
Las Vegas is a city that attracts millions of visitors every year from all corners of the globe. One of the many reasons that people converge on our city is because of the casinos that we have built that are nothing short of wonderlands for those who want to get away from it all. We also can boast of some of the finest hotel and restaurant accommodations in the world. People come here to have a good time, and the people who live here also like to have a good time. It’s all part of what we know as Las Vegas, and it’s always going to be that way.
Unfortunately, all of this unfamiliarity can lead to slip and fall accidents, as people who do not know where they’re going and who may be inside of a building that’s confusing can badly injure themselves when this happens. Sadly, many of the places where slip and fall accidents occur are owned by enormous corporations, and when an individual tourist or local resident is injured they usually stand little chance of properly holding that corporation accountable for injuries they suffered. Instead, they get the runaround and many ultimately give up with trying to recover anything to help them manage their losses or they accept some lowball offer that quickly disposes of the matter.
What property owners and managers never want someone who has slipped and fallen to do is to talk to a Las Vegas slip and fall lawyer. That’s because they know that if someone took this step, they would find out that the people responsible for that premises owed them a duty of care that stated that they needed to either remove the dangerous condition that caused them to slip and fall or they needed to clearly warn any foreseeable entrants onto their property of that dangerous condition’s presence. If they failed to take either of these steps, then they could be liable for all of the losses the injured person has suffered, including those that will be incurred in the future.
This is exactly what the team at Bernstein & Poisson tells our clients when they contact us to ask for help. Slip and fall situations are not rare nor are they something to be taken lightly. According to the National Safety Council, nearly 9 million people in the United States visit the emergency room after being injured in a fall every year. In addition, nearly 25,000 people in the United States are killed on an annual basis because of injuries sustained in falls.
If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident and the insurance company representing the building ownership either comes to you quickly with a settlement offer or refuses to deal with you, that should be a sign that you are not being treated properly. Instead of haggling with an insurance company as the time limit to file a lawsuit continues to move towards the end, simply contact Bernstein & Poisson to schedule a free initial consultation.
