Hurt on Unsafe Property?
Seek Compensation - Call Our Personal Injury Attorney in Reno
When someone is injured as a result of unsafe property or building conditions,
he or she may have a right to make a claim for damages against the owner
of the property. In Nevada, a landowner may be liable for injuries occurring
on his or her land if his or her conduct regarding risk of injury was
unreasonable under the circumstance. Property maintenance and adequate
warning about hidden dangers are often considered when analyzing whether
a landowner's conduct was reasonable.
Unlike some jurisdictions which base a landowner's liability entirely on the injured person's status as a trespasser, licensee, or invitee, Nevada law considers the status of the injured person only to evaluate the reasonableness of the landowner's conduct.

Business Premises and Security
When you are on a commercial property, you are owed a level of care. You shouldn't have to think about a potential injury due to an oversight on behalf of the property owner. However, when negligence comes into play and the owners do not provide a reasonable level of care, they can be held liable for any injuries that occur.
Unsafe property cases often involve the following circumstances:
- Broken or cracked walkways
- Loose or broken handrails
- Inadequate security and lighting
- Broken or crooked stairways
- Torn or ripped flooring
- Slippery floor

Klearman & Associates, we strive to provide all of our clients with the caring and compassionate counsel they need as they seek compensation.
