Las Vegas Slip and Fall Injury Advocates
The cornerstone of any slip-and-fall case is liability. Was the property owner responsible or should some or all of the responsibility fall on the injured party? An attorney will work to determine whether a property owner should have noticed the dangerous condition and taken measures to prevent an accident.
In determining negligence, the behavior of the person responsible for safeguarding the property will be scrutinized. Should a person reasonably have known that this particular behavior would create an unsafe condition? Had areas of a property fallen into disrepair, therefore causing an unsafe condition for visitors? If the property owner could have easily prevented the accident from occurring, an injured person has a much better chance of proving negligence.
Ideally, a slip-and-fall injury victim will receive the compensation necessary to pay medical bills and associated costs. However, in many cases an individual must seek assistance, since many insurance companies have a vested interest in paying the least amount possible. When someone finds that insurance companies are either denying a claim or offering less than is necessary to cover costs, a person may find that seeking legal assistance is necessary.
No Recovery, No Fee.
A common misconception injured people have is that they cannot afford a lawyer. Claggett & Sykes only takes cases on a contingency fee basis. This means your legal services are paid for with a percentage of whatever we win for you. To put it simply: you don’t pay if we don’t win.
