Elderly Woman Latest Victim of Slip and Fall Injury

A slip and fall is something that can happen to anyone at anytime. In Las Vegas there have been so many instances of people having some serious accidents and becoming hurt as the result of someone else’s negligence or just common oversight. In terms of the quantity of Southern Nevada accidents that result in injury, a slip and fall incident is the second most common, only second to an injury auto accident on Clark County roads. Ice, water, oil, and other out of place substances and debris can cause an unexpected surprise for patrons of stores, gas, stations, parking lots, sidewalks, and hotels and casinos on the Las Vegas strip. It may seem unusual to our readers who are hailing from other cities or even countries, but the top location for slip and fall claims in Southern Nevada is at a hotel, casino, or resort as a patron, guest, or visitor to Las Vegas Boulevard and surrounding areas known for their attractions. Sometimes the way that a hotel or resort may respond to such claims is to try to implicate the patron of their establishment, attempting to paint their guests as drunk or intoxicated and therefor at fault. It’s a broad brush to use for the fine people, Las Vegas locals and tourists alike who frequent their properties, and an unfair assessment for those who simply head to the strip for the world-class entertainment, dining, or shopping options made available there. A slip and fall injury accident in Las Vegas is nothing to brush off, contact someone who has your best interests at heart to represent your case in the right way.

The details of the case are simple. An elderly women filed a suit in central California, Nevada’s neighboring state, against her retirement home. The assisted living center in question failed to prevent her slip and fall accident, which resulted in her injury and her need to be examined by a doctor and placed under medical care. The elderly woman reportedly told staff at her assisted living center that she really needed help to stay upright while showering, and the staff at the center denied her that support and just the routine supervision that is so important for vulnerable populations like the young and the elderly. As the elderly patient of the assisted living center was attempting to shower, she slipped on the slick bathroom floor and fell hard, causing her to file a claim against the company, sighting negligence in her care.
