1. The elements of a Nevada hotel neligence case

Nevada law requires a plaintiff to prove four "elements" in order to be successful in a Las Vegas casino negligence action:

  • The hotel had a legal duty of care to the injured party;
  • The hotel breached that duty;
  • The plaintiff's injuries were legally caused by the breach of duty; and
  • The injury resulted in damages to the plaintiff.[1]

Let's take a closer look at some of these elements.

2. What duty of care do Las Vegas hotels owe to guests and employees?

Hotels have a basic duty under Nevada law to make sure that their property is safe and free from any threats that may cause injury.[2]

Precautions Nevada hotels must take to keep premises safe for guests include (without limitation):

  • Keeping hotel rooms and public areas in good repair;
  • Reprogramming keys after prior guests check out;
  • Complying with Nevada food safety regulations;
  • Calling paramedics or trained medical personnel in the event of a medical problem;
  • Having a plan to deal with emergencies, such as fires; and
  • Complying with Nevada and federal anti-discrimination laws.
