Why Do You Need a Slip and Fall Injury Lawyer?
The property owner allegedly responsible for your accident and his/her insurer will likely try to contest your claim. The insurance company may use defenses such as comparative fault or allege that you missed a deadline or somehow don’t qualify for recovery. Don’t let the insurer take advantage of you. Protect your rights and secure your financial future by hiring an attorney. One of our lawyers representing your slip and fall case will give you the power to prevent low settlement offers and denied claims.
Who Is Liable for a Slip and Fall?
New Mexico law holds property owners responsible for the safety of their homes, businesses, and lots. It is a property owner’s duty to inspect the area for hidden hazards, repair known ones, and prevent accidents by warning guests of potential dangers. A property owner owes these duties to invitees, such as customers at a business. An owner does not, however, have to check for hidden hazards when welcoming licensees to a property – or do anything to prevent harm to a trespasser.
Your classification as a guest on the property will determine the owner’s duties of care to you. Liability will also depend on who caused your accident. Someone other than the property owner could be accountable if that person caused your injuries. Liable parties may include co-workers product manufacturers or off-duty employees. Understanding your position on a property and the actions/inactions of the property owner is necessary before filing your claim. Determining liability may take an investigation into your slip and fall accident. An experienced slip and fall lawyer can help.
What Damages Can I Recover?
Should your slip and fall claim prove successful, the courts may award you compensation for your personal injuries, hospital bills, lost wages, property damages, and pain and suffering. You may also receive punitive damages if the defendant was grossly negligent in failing to prevent the fall. We have obtained outstanding results for past clients involved in slip, trip, and fall accidents. One of our lawyers can help you determine damages in your situation.
