New Mexico Slip and Fall accidents are uniquely difficult to prosecute.  You need a lawyer who is an expert in Slip and Fall accidents.  We have handled numerous Slip and Fall accident cases in New Mexico and know how to get you the justice you deserve.

To win a Slip and Fall accident claim in New Mexico, you must prove that the owner of a business failed to exercise ordinary care to keep his/her premises safe for your use.  N.M. Uniform Jury Instruction 13-1318.

Over the years, New Mexico businesses have become more and more clever in their defense of slip and fall claims.  Specifically, they have trained their employees how to act and respond when a person is injured on their property.  Typically, when there is an injury on their premises, they will complete an incident report noting the claimant’s personal information, how they allegedly were injured, and what the store’s response was given these injuries.  Sometimes they will even conduct witness statements if available.  However, they will never admit liability and rarely do they give a copy of the completed report to the injured claimant.  Unfortunately, there is no New Mexico law which requires them to do so.

Without the incident report, the claimant is left at a significant disadvantage.  Fortunately, we know how to combat these dirty tactics by aggressively preserving the evidence at the incident scene as well as making formal request for any and all copies of videos and reports.  When justified, we will even file a lawsuit immediately to prevent any evidence from being destroyed.  However, the sooner we get involved for you, the sooner we can make a difference and preserve your New Mexico Slip and Fall claim.
