What are libel and slander?

In the business world, it is almost inevitable that you will come across someone who is not happy with your products or services, or with a business arrangement you had with them. It is normal for people to tell others if they are not satisfied. It is also understandable if you or other Las Vegas business owners are upset about negative things that are said about your companies. Is there a line that can be drawn between free speech and libel or slander?

Road construction can be a hazard for Vegas residents and workers

Las Vegas is a busy, congested area, and there is much room for growth outside the city. Because of this, in combination with favorable weather year-round, there is usually some kind of road construction going on in the area. Established roads need regular maintenance and highways are frequently expanded and improved. While most people consider road construction to be an inconvenience as they encounter it while driving, construction also poses serious hazards to motorists and crew workers alike.

McAfee lawsuit highlights the use of a name as a copyright

As discussed in previous blog posts, infringing on another person or company's trademark can result in serious legal repercussions. A trademark is a logo, catchphrase, jingle or other form of intellectual property that sets a business's brand apart from others. Consumers in Las Vegas and elsewhere should be able to easily recognize a strong trademark as belonging to a particular company or brand. For example, everyone recognizes Disney's iconic mouse ears.

Can I interpret my dog’s body language to avoid being bitten?

One of the most frightening and potentially life-threatening events someone in your family might face is being bitten by a dog. Many dog bites in Las Vegas are the result of a dog the victim knew; often, it was the family dog, and children are among the most vulnerable victims of dog attacks. Understanding the body language that dogs express may go a long way toward keeping you or one of your loved ones from being bitten.

City's deteriorating water system leads to slippery surface

From leaky pipes to wet surfaces caused by mopping and spills, there are all sorts of reasons why floors can be slippery. However, when business and property owners fail to handle the problem in a timely manner, they leave others at risk. In Las Vegas, and cities across the entire state of Nevada, it is important for everyone who owns a business to watch out for slippery floors and any other dangers that may pose a risk to those who enter their premises.

Recovering from a slip-and-fall accident

Whether you are shopping in a grocery store or walking on the sidewalk outside of a business, it is important to be aware of any hazards that could cause you to suffer an injury, such as falling objects or poor lighting. However, in Las Vegas, and across the state of Nevada, you should also watch out for slippery surfaces and the risk of falling down. Unfortunately, slip-and-fall accidents often occur because of a business owner's negligence and failure to properly maintain the premises. At the Aldrich Law Firm, Ltd., we know all too well how difficult it can be to move forward after a slip-and-fall incident.

What dangers should Nevada motorists watch out for this fall?

When it comes to fall and winter weather, Las Vegas residents stand to encounter much milder conditions on the road, compared with Northern Nevada and many other states. However, this does not necessarily mean that you and others are immune from fall and winter conditions this year. As always, it is smart to be aware of weather conditions, as well as your surroundings while you are driving.

Flexible hour plans may mutually benefit employers and staff

Employers in Nevada and other states must follow rules regarding how many hours a week an employee works before getting overtime pay. This is to ensure workers are given a fair wage for putting in more hours than is considered a normal work week, as well as to prevent employers from taking advantage of their staff.

The general rules surrounding the public domain

It is a song that is probably the most performed out of any other tune in America, but was rarely heard on television or in movies because of copyright claims. Yet countless families across Nevada and every other state would sing it to each other every day. A recent ruling by a U.S. district judge has sent the Happy Birthday song into the public domain.
