Falls can cause severe injuries including hip fractures and traumatic brain injuries, making it difficult to live independently. The Center for Decease Control (“CDC”) reports falls as a leading cause of traumatic brain injuries and the third leading cause of death from accidental injuries.
Nevada Law (NRS 41.130) allows for the compensation for another’s wrongful act or negligence when suffering injury because of such wrongful acts and/or negligence:
“Whenever any person shall suffer personal injury by wrongful act, neglect or default of another, the person causing the injury is liable to the person injured for damages; and where the person causing the injury is employed by another person or corporation responsible for the conduct of the person causing the injury, that other person or corporation so responsible is liable to the person injured for damages.”
However, demonstrating negligence against big businesses, public entities, and retail centers, etc. is complicated. These locations have a duty to maintain a safe premise and injuries resulting from the breach of their duty are compensable to those victims. Allow Jennifer Gastelum Law to help protect your right to the compensation you or your loved one deserve. Jennifer Gastelum is not afraid to fight against big companies to protect her client’s interests; do not fight these companies alone.
