Around 30 injured when floor collapses at South Carolina party

Nevada readers would never expect a floor they were standing on to collapse, hurling them to the level below. Unfortunately, that's exactly what happened to dozens of South Carolina partygoers in the early morning hours of October 21.

Avoiding slip-and-fall accidents

Falls are a common cause of injuries in Nevada. In regard to workplace accidents, falls from a height are two to three times more expensive in terms of costs than falls on a level surface. Even a fall from a couple feet can result in life-changing injuries. However, there are several ways to prevent falls from occurring.

What is involved in a property negligence case

Nevada residents who are injured on another's property and who feel that the accident could have been prevented if the owner was not negligent may have a case under premises liability law. Negligence is defined as the failure to act in a way that is reasonably expected in a given set of circumstances. When applied to property owners, it usually covers instances of poor property maintenance.

Shooting victim files premises liability lawsuit

One of the survivors of a fatal shooting at a video game tournament has filed a lawsuit seeking recovery for damages. Nevada readers might already be aware of the shooting that took place at a Madden tournament on August 26. The man who has filed suit was shot twice in the incident.

Determining liability after an accident

If an employee is hurt on the job in Nevada or elsewhere, he or she may be entitled to workers' compensation benefits. However, determining liability for an injury may be more complicated if a person gets hurt while working at a private residence. If that person works for a company with five or more employees, he or she would likely file a workers' compensation claim.

Pool safety: three tips for homeowners in Nevada

There are 7.4 million swimming pools in residential or public use in the U.S., according to the CDC. It's important to keep pools safe because of the risk for drowning, especially among children: for every child under 14 who dies from drowning, five are sent to the emergency room for non-fatal submersion. Over 3,500 Americans die in non-boating drowning accidents every year.

Falling AC units in New York: not a myth

Nevada residents may or may not be familiar with the usual safety concerns that grip New Yorkers, but some of them are myths. A penny thrown from the top of the Empire State Building, for instance, will not gather enough momentum to kill someone below upon impact. Another concern, though, has solid grounding in fact.

Nine injured in Daytona Beach roller coaster accident

Nevada residents may think twice about amusement parks after hearing about a Daytona Beach, Florida, roller coaster accident. The Daytona Beach Boardwalk features a ride called the Sand Blaster, which has been in use there since 2013. It was made 40 years ago and previously belonged to an amusement park in Delaware.

Lawsuit claims tourist injured at David Copperfield show

On April 13, opening statements were heard in a civil trial brought by a man who alleges he suffered injuries in a fall while participating in magician David Copperfield's Las Vegas show in 2013. Both Copperfield and MGM Grand casino are named as defendants in the case.

Common premises liability issues

When an individual is injured at a commercial property, the owner could be held liable for damages. There are many potential liability issues that could make a Nevada property unsafe. For instance, a carpet that is not laying flat can cause someone to slip and fall. Cables or wires that are not properly stored could also pose a trip hazard. It's important to note that premises liability lawsuits tend to be among the most expensive types of claims to resolve.
