I've got to give some real talk about my attorney, Mathew. At first, he might come off a bit rough around the edges, and I won't lie, it took me a minute to get used to it. But, as time went on, I started to truly appreciate that side of him. It's like his no-nonsense approach is actually one of his strengths. He cuts through the fluff, gets down to business, and genuinely has your back. Weirdly enough, I've come to love that about him. If you want someone straightforward and fiercely on your side, Mathew's the real deal.
Response from the owner: Thank you so much for the kind words and taking the time to share this!
Louis D.
I've got to share about my experience with my custody attorney, Lauren. Going through a custody battle is never easy, but Lauren was a true anchor throughout. She didn't just feed me legal jargon or false promises. She was honest from the get-go, even when the truth was hard to swallow. And you know how sometimes it feels like you're in the dark with legal stuff? Not with Lauren. She made sure I was always in the loop and understood each step. It felt like I had a friend guiding me, someone genuinely on my side. If you're diving into the maze of custody battles and need a steady hand, Lauren is the one you'd want by your side. She's been a godsend.
Response from the owner: We agree, Lauren ROCKS!
Alessandro S.

The whole time we worked together, he kept things real and was straight-up honest, no sugarcoating. It felt like having a knowledgeable friend on my side, guiding me through everything. If you're looking for someone down-to-earth and trustworthy, Mathew's your guy. So glad I found him.

What is a slip and fall?

A slip and fall accident occurs when a person slips, trips, or falls on someone else’s property due to a dangerous condition. Dangerous conditions can include wet or slippery floors, uneven walkways, poor lighting, and obstacles in walkways. Property owners are obligated to maintain their property in a reasonably safe manner.

What should I do if I was injured from a slip and fall?

If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident, it is important to take the following steps to protect your health and legal rights:

  1. Seek medical attention. Even if you do not feel any pain immediately, it is important to get checked out by a doctor to make sure that you do not have any hidden injuries.
  2. Report the accident. Ask the property owner to document the incident and provide you with a copy of the report.
  3. Consult with an experienced personal injury attorney. 
  4. ey. An attorney can help you understand your legal options and pursue compensation for your injuries.

What are Nevada slip and fall laws?

In Nevada, property owners are legally obligated to keep their property safe for visitors. This means that they must repair any hazards, such as broken sidewalks or uneven stairs, and warn visitors of any potential dangers, such as construction zones or slippery surfaces. If a property owner fails to meet this duty and someone is injured, the property owner can be held liable for the victim’s damages.

However, Nevada is a comparative negligence state, which means that if the victim is found to be partially at fault for the accident, their compensation may be reduced proportionally. For example, if the victim is found to be 20% at fault and the property owner is found to be 80% at fault, the victim’s compensation will be reduced by 20%.

Here are some examples of situations where a property owner may be held liable for a slip and fall accident:

  • He or she fails to repair a broken sidewalk.
  • The owner leaves a wet floor unmarked.
  • There’s construction on the property, but visitors are not notified.
  • The property owner has a dangerous animal on the property and does not warn visitors.

Am I Eligible for Compensation?

If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident, you may be eligible for compensation for your damages. Damages may include recouping medical expenses, lost wages, and the price of pain and suffering. To recover compensation, you will need to demonstrate that the property owner was negligent or otherwise responsible for the accident, and that your injuries were caused by the accident.

Should I Sue the Party Responsible for My Slip and Fall?

To sue the party responsible for your slip and fall, you will need to file a personal injury lawsuit in court. Your attorney will help you gather evidence to support your claim, such as witness statements, medical records, and photographs of the accident scene. Your attorney will also negotiate with the other party’s insurance company to try to reach a settlement before trial. If a settlement cannot be reached, your case will go to trial. In this case, a judge or jury will determine liability for your injuries and compensation you are entitled to.
