When judges make mistakes

Taking someone to court over an injury you sustained on his or her Las Vegas property could result in compensation for the costs of your medical care, pain and suffering, and other damages. However, there is no guarantee that the judge will see things your way. At the Aldrich Law Firm, Ltd., we have helped many people successfully appeal premises liability decisions after an incorrect judgment.

Is it negligence? Elements of premises liability

If you had to focus on your own personal safety constantly, going shopping or out to eat in Las Vegas could turn into a chore. When business owners have done their job right, their establishments will not have hazards threatening your well-being at every turn. In fact, the law holds them responsible for ensuring that they do not put anyone in danger through negligence.

The basics of products liability

When you create a product in Nevada, you have a responsibility to make sure that it is safe. However, you may not be able to predict ways that consumers may interact with it, and all the ways in which an accident may happen. The team at the Aldrich Law Firm, Ltd., has provided advice to many companies facing products liability litigation.

What is a breach of fiduciary duty?

As a corporate officer of a company in Las Vegas, you naturally want your business to succeed. It may be that not everyone involved in your corporation is as committed as you are. According to the American Bar Association, if your partners, directors and controlling shareholders do not fulfill their fiduciary duties, you may be able to take them to court to hold them liable. However, proving that there has been a breach of fiduciary duty is not always cut and dried.

Many factors contributing to high number of NV pedestrian deaths

Pedestrians are particularly vulnerable when they cross Las Vegas roadways. Although bicyclists may be wearing helmets, a person on foot rarely has any protection at all when hit by a vehicle. Many of the roads in the city are wide to accommodate multiple lanes of tourist traffic, and crosswalks may be few and far between. Any or all of these factors may contribute to the number of pedestrian deaths that occur in Clark County each year.

The path of a civil case through the Nevada court system

A person may decide to file a civil complaint in a Nevada court for a number of reasons. For example, compensation may be available for someone who suffers a physical injury or loss because of another’s negligence, a breached contract, defamation of character or other such matter. The Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada explains that this claim is typically seeking damages, protection of rights or an injunction. The defendant can then file an answer or another type of response to the plaintiff’s claims.

When complex litigation requires expert testimony

If a company in Nevada is facing complex litigation, convincing the judge and jury that the other party is in the wrong may require explanations of how the facts apply to the case. Frequently, a lay person may not have the knowledge to grasp anything about the technical aspects of the matters in question. According to Cornell University Law School’s Legal Information Institute, companies often rely on expert witnesses to provide the specialized information.

Employee surveillance in the workplace

Before you set up your security cameras and other surveillance methods within your company’s facilities in Las Vegas, you need to know whether you may violate an employee’s rights and open yourself up to litigation. We at the Aldrich Law Firm, Ltd., have provided advice to many employers who want to make sure they do not cross any lines when it comes to privacy laws.

Nevada boating laws and safety measures

Warmer weather is coming, and with it the opportunities to enjoy boating on Lake Tahoe, Mead and other Nevada lakes. Just as with traffic on the highways, congestion, negligence or reckless behavior on the water can lead to injuries and fatalities. The Nevada Department of Wildlife’s Handbook of Nevada Boating Laws explains that anyone involved in a boating accident must comply with state guidelines.

Arbitration vs. litigation: Elements to consider

When a business dispute arises between your Las Vegas company and another party, you may believe you have no choice but to involve the legal system. However, seeking assistance to resolve the issue does not necessarily mean heading to court. We at the Aldrich Law Firm, Ltd., often provide advice to business owners who are unsure of the best means of resolving commercial disputes.
