According to the latest report by the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB), Las Vegas ranks fifth in the nation for questionable slip-and-fall claims despite being only the 30th largest city in the United States. Most businesses carry insurance to financially protect them should someone become injured as a result of a legitimate accident.
