Premises Liability

New Mexico has laws that require landowners, business owners, and homeowners to maintain their property so that it does not present a risk of harm to others. This means that if you or someone you know has been harmed on another’s premises, the property owner has an obligation to help you in your recovery.

Many victims are hesitant to act, believing their injury may be the result of personal irresponsibility. However, there are often circumstances where the property owner was aware of the harm and did not take the necessary steps to protect their guests. 

These injuries can have very real consequences on those who endure them. In addition to slip and fall cases, premises liability cases also include:

  • Injuries sustained from defective construction 
  • Failure to warn of dangerous conditions
  • Injuries inflicted by a third party on the premise

Common injuries of premises incidents include: 

  • Serious wrist injuries
  • Back and spinal injuries
  • Brain trauma, including concussions
  • Broken bones
  • Head injuries 
  • Herniated discs 
  • Hip fractures 
  • Sprains, tendonitis, and torn ligaments 

These injuries have very real costs, too. In addition to the intense pain, you or your loved ones can face loss of income, heavy medical costs, psychological trauma, and permanent disability.

If your injuries were the result of someone else’s negligence, you have a right to compensation for the consequences of their action.
