Whether consumers are buying a product or tuning in to a sporting event, they expect a fair deal for their money. When those they are purchasing a product or service from fail to uphold their end of the bargain, business litigation can result. This appears to have been the case over the much-anticipated “Fight of the Century” between professional boxing champions Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao, which took place in Las Vegas on May 2, 2015.
Las Vegas businesses must operate in accordance with all relevant state and federal laws and regulations. Sometimes the intersection of two or more statutes can lead to technical legal issues, and in many instances the survival of a lawsuit depends on how courts interpret the interaction of those laws.
Las Vegas residents trust their safety to the vehicles around them on a daily basis; they drive, ride in public transportation, and navigate around cars as they walk along roadways. Because of this, a great deal of pressure is placed on car manufacturers to ensure that their vehicles are safe for drivers, passengers and pedestrians. When this trust is breached, these companies can face federal fines, severe court-ordered punishments, business litigation and criminal lawsuits.
Many Las Vegas companies have faced business litigation at some point in their histories. Such lawsuits can be very burdensome for corporations, as they divert resources away from the everyday needs of the business. Often, the parties involved prefer to shorten the amount of time needed to resolve the issue by opting for a settlement instead of a trial. However, if settlement talks break down or the proposed amount is considered too paltry, plaintiffs may abandon these negotiation efforts and choose to pursue their claims in court.
Large companies often find themselves facing various types of business litigation, and those headquartered in Las Vegas are no exception. Regardless of whether these claims have merit, a court case can sometimes be damaging to the company’s public image because of the evidence that can come to light during a trial. When workers decide to pursue employment litigation against their current or former employers, the companies may choose to settle these claims rather than have them aired in court.
Many companies’ corporate headquarters are located in Las Vegas, and these offices are responsible for the oversight of national and international branches of the business. When it is suspected that large companies such as these are conducting themselves in an illegal fashion, the management teams and their business practices may come under investigation. If it is discovered that these corporations were in fact engaging in business fraud, deceptive trade practices or other unlawful activity, severe penalties may result.
While the end of the year has always been known as the season of giving, the close of 2013 seems to have become the season of online scams. Las Vegas consumers who are not diligent in their research of a virtual retailer prior to making a purchase may end up being the victim of a rip-off scheme.
One of the great concerns of many uninsured Las Vegas residents is what to do when they need emergency health services. Most often individuals are not uninsured by choice, but instead due to a lack of available funds necessary to cover the insurance expense. While some people would rather wait out their illness than pay the emergency care self-pay rates, others find themselves faced with a literal life and death decision and have little choice but to pay the charges.
When individuals think of continued education they likely consider an institution that is focused on providing a solid instructive foundation first and foremost. However, the reality is that the motivation for many Las Vegas for-profit schools is to make money. In some instances, the school’s administration will do anything to get financial gain, even if that means misrepresenting their facility in order to attract more students.
When it comes to consumer industries, countless individuals prefer buying all-American. In fact, many Las Vegas shoppers will only spend their money on American-made goods because they feel that it is a benefit to our nation by increasing job security and stimulating the economy. For manufacturing companies, advertising on a “Made in the USA” platform can be a successful way to promote a product and gain loyal customers.
