LAS VEGAS SLIP & FALL ACCIDENT ATTORNEYS
At Bernstein & Poisson, we know that slip and fall accidents are not something to be taken lightly. According to the National Safety Council, nearly 9 million people in the United States visit emergency rooms after being injured in falls 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 our Las Vegas slip and fall lawyers to schedule a free initial consultation. There is no fee unless we win.
Give us a call at (702) 633-3333 to get started.
DAMAGES IN A SLIP & FALL CASES
When a property owner pays damages it can include not only past medical bills related to the injury but also future bills, such as ongoing or future physical therapy. Damages in a slip and fall case can include:
- Medical bills
- Lost income during recovery
- Pain and suffering
The team at Bernstein & Poisson understand that slip-and-fall situations are not rare and should not be taken lightly.
CAUSES OF SLIP & FALL ACCIDENTS
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 the casinos we have built 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. Examples of hazards that can cause such accidents may include:
- Objects in walkways
- Unmarked stairways or steps
- Poorly lit walkways and stairways
- Defective escalators
- Water or other slippery liquids on walkways
- Defective stairways or railings
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 may ultimately give up with trying to recover anything to help them manage their losses or they accept some low-ball offer that quickly disposes of the matter.
WHAT TO DO AFTER A LAS VEGAS SLIP & FALL ACCIDENT
A negligent property owner never wants someone who has slipped and fallen to talk to an experienced Las Vegas slip and fall lawyer. This is because they will learn that the people responsible for the property owed them a duty of care, either removing the dangerous condition that caused them to slip and fall, or clearly warning any 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.

"Bernstein & Poisson did a fantastic job with a case that my mom was involved in with a slip and fall. It's really nerve wrecking to have to go through the process of choosing the right firm to hire for any case no matter what it is for. I did research about this law firm prior to selecting them and heard great things. People's experiences can differ obviously because everyone case is going to be different. One thing that does in fact stay the same is the level of customer service. Our family appreciated the fact that even though the case did take some time that we were kept in the loop with plenty updates and the employees we worked with very professional and courteous. Specifically Sean and Jessica are who stood out the most and were very easy to work with. This place truly did their best to fight for the max amount. Now we know who we can keep as a contact if there should be a need for another attorney!"
