Premises Liability Claims in New Mexico

We expect to be safe when we visit another person’s home or go to a store, restaurant, or other business. The owners of these properties also have a legal responsibility to keep their visitors safe. When that responsibility is not met and injuries result, a home or business owner can be held liable for negligence.

We at Trenchard & Hoskins can help you recover compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, non-economic damages, and other losses that you have suffered because of their carelessness.

What is Premises Liability?

Premises liability is an area of the law in which home and business owners are held liable for injuries that have occurred on their property. It is the responsibility of property owners to keep their spaces safe by identifying and correcting hazards, as well as warning visitors of any safety issues that are present in the area. The failure to do this can lead to injuries, and as a result, legal action. A person who is injured because of a property owner’s negligence may be entitled to compensation for their medical bills, lost wages due to an inability to work, and other damages.

Common Causes of Premises Liability Injuries

The underlying cause of premises liability incidents is almost always the negligence of the property owner. A property that is not safely maintained can easily lead to the injury of visitors.

A person may be injured on another person’s property because of:

  • Falling objects
  • Slippery conditions
  • Lack of adequate warning signs
  • Electrical issues
  • Toxic substances
  • Unstable heights
  • Unfenced swimming pools and other hazards

Who is Liable for Premises Liability Incidents?

In most cases of premises liability, the person or entity who owns the location where injuries occurred is held liable for damages. This may include business owners and managers, homeowners, landlords, and others who own a space and are therefore responsible for maintaining safety in the area.

Although such instances do not resemble traditional premises liability cases, other parties could be liable for your injuries. Third parties who could be partially responsible include construction companies, manufacturers, maintenance companies, and others who maintain and upkeep buildings.

If you were injured on another person’s property while working, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits as well.

Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents are one of the most common types of premises liability incidents. These types of accidents may be caused by wet and slippery floors, unstable surfaces, or other elements that can cause visitors to fall and be injured. A slip and fall accident can lead to injuries such as broken bones, bruising, traumatic brain injuries, and spine injuries.

Establishing negligence in a slip and fall accident case requires swift action. If you fell and were injured because of a property owner’s negligence, you must contact our firm as soon as possible so we can begin gathering evidence and building your case.
