Accidents like slip and falls can cause serious injuries that require expensive medical care and significant time off work for treatment. They can uproot your life and affect your loved ones as well.

When You Can Make a Premises Liability Claim
While trespassers are typically not protected by New Mexico’s premises liability laws, legal visitors to a property have the right to expect it has been maintained so it is safe for them. Dangerous conditions, whether obvious or not, must be remedied or warned about by the property owner.
Causes for property liability claims cover many hazards that may be present on private and commercial properties:
- Balcony collapse
- Dangerous snow and ice
- Defective sidewalks
- Dog bites
- Falling objects
- Insufficient lighting
- Slippery surfaces
- Toxic exposure
- Unsafe staircases
You should note that, while a property owner is expected to keep premises in good repair, they may defend themselves by claiming they had no way of knowing the hazard existed. Having a strong investigative team on your side can help against such challenges to your claim.
A property owner is also responsible for foreseeing potential dangers to visitors. For instance, a poorly lit parking garage or gas station may seem an inviting opportunity for criminals. Anyone who was attacked or harmed on another’s property should speak to our team about the possibility of making a negligent security claim.
