Find out how attorney Bill Kendall in Reno, NV, can help you achieve justice...

What Is Premises Liability?

A premises liability case involves a person being injured on another party’s property. When you visit certain places in Nevada, you have a right to expect that the property is safe and free of hazard. But not all property owners keep their premises free from danger, and a slip and fall or other accident can result in serious injuries. If you have fallen while at the mall, a casino, a government building, or even while on private property, we can help you collect compensation for your personal injury. Our premises liability attorney at the Law Office of William R. Kendall offers legal representation for victims of all types of personal injury, including those relating to premises liability.

Why Should I Hire a Premises Liability Attorney?

Justice

If you have suffered due to an owner’s oversight, you deserve to be fairly compensated for your injuries. They are required to maintain a safe environment and must be held accountable for any negligence that causes harm to those who have a legal right to enter the property. 

Advocacy

An owner’s insurance company or attorney can be challenging to deal with. They may try to minimize their liability by trying to falsify your claims that a dangerous condition was present. It is crucial to have a lawyer who can stand up for you and present proof of negligence. Bill Kendall helps victims collect maximum restitution for injuries by building a compelling evidence-based case that proves liability.

Peace of Mind

Building a premises liability case can be virtually impossible without an advanced knowledge of the law. We want you to focus on healing without worrying about the details of your claim. Bill Kendall handles every aspect of your case from start to finish in order to achieve the best possible outcome on your behalf.

Bill Kendall is an amazing lawyer. Through my whole case he gave me the peace of mind knowing that someone was always there looking out for my best interests. Whenever I called, it was Bill that answered the phone, not an exchange, a clerk, or a receptionist. Not having to talk to clerks or receptionists, leave messages, then wait, is one of the things that made working with Bill so awesome. If I could leave 6 stars I would.

What Premises Liability Means for Property Owners

When you are on someone else's property and have a legal right to be there, you have a right to expect that the premises poses no danger to you. Trespassers may also have a case if it can be proven that the owner intentionally harmed them, the owner was aware of their presence and failed to provide warning of danger, or if the trespasser is a child.

A property owner's duties include:

  • Maintaining even walking surfaces
  • Keeping flooring clean and dry
  • Providing security
  • Keeping the premises properly lit

Establishing a case requires not only proving negligence and liability, but also proving that your injuries are directly related. Many victims of an owner's carelessness suffer physical injuries that require both immediate medical attention and ongoing care. The negligent party is responsible for the repayment of these costs as well as lost wages and other losses. Bill Kendall in Reno is prepared to help make certain you collect what you are owed.

Requirements For a Premises Liability Case in Nevada

To have a qualifying premises liability claim against a property owner in Nevada, you must prove the following:
number-1Created with Sketch.
You had permission to be on the property. You are a visitor or guest on the premises, formally known as an invitee in premises liability law. An invitee is anyone invited to the property or business for the benefit of the owner. For example, a casino or mall in Reno, NV, grants permission for individuals to be there. If you are a trespasser, a successful claim will be much more difficult to substantiate.
number-2Created with Sketch.
A dangerous condition was present on the property. Whether it was a tripping hazard, gas leak, or lack of a security guard, you must prove that a hazardous condition was present on the property. We will collect all information to help prove the existence of a dangerous condition.
number-3Created with Sketch.
The owner knew about, or should have known about, the dangerous condition. Owners can notify visitors of danger by posting signs, blocking off hazardous areas, or fixing the problem. If the owner hasn’t been proactive in fixing issues or maintaining a safe environment, you may qualify for a lawsuit.

Owners are Responsible for Their Animals
