Did You Fall On Another’s Property?
Public and private property owners have a legal duty to keep their premises reasonably safe. You can hold property owners liable for your injuries when you slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall on a dangerous condition. You have a right to seek compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Unfortunately, this is often easier said than done without the help of an attorney.
Located in Albuquerque, Garrett Law is a personal injury firm you can turn to for knowledgeable and attentive guidance. We live in the community we serve. Our desire to provide you with the best outcome and experience is entirely genuine.
What To Do When You Have Been Injured
When you become our client, we will explain everything to you and deal with the property owner and their insurance company on your behalf. We will handle the details for you, but there are a few things you can do to protect your claim.
- Get medical attention for your injuries. Medical documentation is crucial in any personal injury case, and you may not even know the true extent of your injuries.
- Notify the owner about your injury and the dangerous condition. You should always create a record of an accident to protect your claim. Informing owners does not eliminate their liability for your injuries, but it gives them the opportunity to prevent further injuries.
- Talk with a lawyer immediately. Slip-and-fall claims are rarely paid in full or at all without the help of an attorney. Property owners may claim the accident never occurred, contest the severity of the injury or fail to report it to their insurers.
