Q. If a person falls on a buisness property, is it the buisnesses responsibility to cover the costs? Medical etc.
A: A business owner is not responsible for all accidents/injuries that occur on their property. However, I think this is common assumption that a lot of people have. They assume that if they fall and get injured on someone else's property that the property owner is responsible to pay medical bills. As with virtually all personal injury cases, you first have to prove that the property owner was negligent for allowing a hazardous condition (like a trip/slip hazard) to persist. So, the specific facts of each slip and fall case are import. We'd have to evaluate all of the facts before being able to give you an opinion as to whether Wal Mart is liable. In my experience, Wal Mart will deny slip and fall claims as a matter of course. Therefore, I suggest you contact a Nevada personal injury lawyer to discuss your specific case facts. Best of luck to you.
Q. I have a friend who is a school bus driver. She drives special needs kids. She had an accident in her bus.
A: This is a good question that involves a situation where someone was on the job when involved (and at fault) for an accident. In cases like this the employer is going to generally be responsible for the employee's negligent conduct. This is the legal principle of respondeat superior. Presumably your friend was acting within the course and scope of her employment with the school/county when the accident happened. As such, the employer is going to be on the hook for your friend's allegedly negligent acts. You friend will likely be involved in any litigation against her employer. Specifically, she may have to provide deposition testimony. However, more likely than not, the county will provide her with legal counsel and the county (and their insurance company) would pay any potential settlement/judgment that may come as a result of the litigation.
