Are Las Vegas hotels liable for injuries? 

In Nevada, there is a legal claim called premises liability. Premises liability holds the property owners and/or property managers responsible for injuries that have occurred on their property. If the injury was caused by a negligent action, then the victim could recover compensation for their injuries under this premises liability theory. But, in order to prove premises liability, you must have very strong evidence in your favor. That is where our Las Vegas attorneys come in. If you have an attorney that is not educated in Nevada law, you could risk getting your entire case dismissed. We have been representing accident injury victims in Las Vegas for several decades, and have a proven track record. 

What should I do if I have been injured in a Las Vegas hotel? 

If you have been injured in a Las Vegas hotel, there are certain steps that you must take to make sure that you have met all the requirements for filing a lawsuit. Not only will this help with your future lawsuits, but it will also help with your injuries. 

  • Call 911 if you need immediate medical assistance. Hotel injuries could be severe, and may need to be treated right away. If you feel as though you need immediate medical assistance, call 911.
  • Take pictures of the accident scene. In certain circumstances, taking pictures of what has caused your injury could help your case tremendously. For example, if you were injured in a slip and fall accident in the hotel, taking a picture of the wet floor you slipped on will help our attorneys when filing a lawsuit in your favor and gathering evidence.
  • If there were any witnesses that saw the accident, make sure that you have their contact information. Since there are several thousands of Las Vegas tourists on any given day, the odds of a witness being present in a hotel accident is very high. Make sure that you have the witness contact information.
  • Let the property managers know of the incident. Usually, some hotels may have to file an accident report, and may want to get all the details involved in the accident. Be very cautious when speaking to hotel employees when filling out this accident report.
  • Contact a Las Vegas attorney to see how you can get compensated for your injuries. Our Las Vegas lawyers are ready to help, and are available to answer any questions that you may have 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Schedule a free case evaluation with us today.
  • For any injury, there may need future treatment, such as a future surgery or physical therapy appointments. Make sure that you follow through and attend all these appointments and necessary future care that you may need. One of the biggest defenses that the defendant could raise is the fact that the victim failed to attend necessary future medical care. If you neglect to take care of yourself, that could be used against you when filing a lawsuit.

What is a Las Vegas hotel settlement?

A settlement occurs when both the plaintiff and the defendant come together prior to trial to negotiate a settlement amount. If a settlement amount is not negotiated, then both parties will have to go to trial. Usually, both parties favor a settlement since a trial could be costly to both parties. 

How do I file a lawsuit against a Las Vegas hotel?

If you have been injured in a Las Vegas hotel, then you most likely are able to file a lawsuit against the hotel. But, there are specific requirements that you must show in order to be able to file a lawsuit. These requirements include:

  • The defendant, which is most likely the property owner or property management company had a duty to make sure that their property was safe for all visitors.
  • The property owner or property management company failed to make sure the property was safe.
  • Because the property was not safe, the accident occurred. 
  • Now the victim has injuries caused by the accident. 

How do I hire a personal injury lawyer in Las Vegas?

  • After an accident, we understand that it could be a very stressful time, especially since a lawsuit is not the first thought in your mind. We recommend that you get assistance from a lawyer as soon as possible after your accident. The longer you wait, the more likely you may miss specific requirements and time for filing a lawsuit. 
  • You should first research the attorney that you are trying to hire. There are several attorneys in Las Vegas that may not have specific experience dealing with a hotel injury accident. Make sure that the attorney you are hiring has the right experience.
  • Schedule a free case evaluation with the Las Vegas lawyer. Some attorneys may charge for a case evaluation, but our attorneys do not charge for a case review and evaluation. During this initial consultation, we will review your case and determine what to do to move forward.
  • In certain circumstances, you may want to hire an attorney with trial experience. Not all attorneys have experience going to trial. The case may go to trial rather than get settled. This is more likely for cases where the victim has suffered extreme injuries, and has incurred several thousands of dollars in compensation.
  • Ask the attorney about their fee arrangement. Our Las Vegas lawyers have a contingency fee arrangement, which means that we take 0 fees up front, and only take a fee after we have won compensation for our clients. Compensation could be through a settlement agreement, or through a trial judgment.
