Know Your Rights Before & After a Slip and Fall Accident in Albuquerque, New Mexico

Slip and fall accidents may be that—unavoidable, unexpected occurrences. Slip and fall accidents may also be preventable, and many personal injury suits mitigated by timely response by the party at-fault. If you do not receive the restitution you deserve from the property owners, seek TUF legal help from Hinkle Law Offices, P.C.

Your Right to Safe Premises

While not all slips and falls can be prevented, people should be reasonably safe from injury in their day-to-day travels and stops. Property owners have a responsibility to keep their premises free of hazards that could cause slip and fall accidents. They should be aware of the condition of their premises at all times and promptly take measures to clean, fix or properly mark any areas that pose a slip and fall risk. Businesses should also have policies in place to report any slip and fall incidents as well as directions for providing or procuring medical attention.

Your Right to Recover Compensation

If your slip and fall accident resulted from a property owner’s negligence, you have the right to seek compensation. Eligible expenses may include:

  • Emergency medical attention
  • Hospitalization
  • Rehabilitative treatment
  • Prescription drugs

Your personal injury claim may also include compensation for emotional pain and suffering. If you miss work because of injuries related to your slip and fall accident, your claim may include lost wages and benefits.
