You’ve been in a slip and fall and want to know how you can prove that you weren’t at fault. This is what the risk management department and all of the insurance adjusters always say, “investigation says it’s your fault. We’re not going to pay you a nickel.” How can you prove you weren’t at fault? It’s tough sometimes. There is a lot of analysis that has to go into determining whether or not you were at fault.
Maybe you were somewhat at fault. Under Nevada law, if your fault was less than the fault of the property owner, then you are still entitled to compensation. Let’s say a jury determines that you were 25% at fault. That means that the grocery store, the Walmart, the casino, the hotel, they’re 75% at fault. If the jury awards you an amount of damages, 25% will be reduced for your fault, but they are primarily at fault and they are going to have to compensate you to that extent.
The only way to determine whether or not you were in fact at fault is to hire an attorney who is experienced with slip and fall cases, who knows how to investigate it, how to collect the evidence, how to take that evidence and build it into a winning case, so that you are able to obtain compensation for your injuries and damages.
