Consider this example: In a grocery store, a milk display has been stocked beyond capacity by a store employee. When a customer takes a carton of milk, two other cartons fall to the ground, break open, and spill milk around the display. The customer alerts a nearby employee of the spill. The employee leaves the area without cleaning up the mess or closing the area with warning signs. Two other employees stop by and look at the spill but continue on without taking any action. An hour later, another customer comes over to the milk display. She slips on the spilled milk and is injured as she falls to the ground.
Based on the facts of the above example, the store is likely at fault for the customer’s injuries. Liability in slip and fall cases is determined using one of three criteria.
  1.  The owner or an employee created the dangerous circumstances, for example spilling liquid on the ground.
  2. The owner or an employee knew of the dangerous circumstances but did nothing to correct it, for example a torn edge of carpet people complained about tripping over.
  3. A reasonable person would have corrected the dangerous circumstance during property care and maintenance.

Nguyen & Associates is by far amazing and the best in the Las Vegas and Henderson area. They were able to help me with my case while living in a different state and truly made my experience one to remember. The team there is very informative, communicative, and most importantly friendly. I highly recommend this law firm for all your legal needs.
