Holding Business Owners Responsible For Injuries On Their Property
Whether you are at a grocery store, mall, amusement park or any other place of business, you expect that the property you visit will be reasonably safe. When business owners fail to maintain their property, make timely repairs or post safety warnings, you can get hurt and suffer serious injuries.
Proving that dangerous property conditions led to your injuries is not always easy. It takes legal insight and a targeted strategy to challenge property owners and their insurance providers. Our Albuquerque legal team at the Law Office of Nathan Cobb has the experience needed to prove that your injuries were caused by property owner negligence and that you deserve compensation for the harms you’ve suffered.
Premises Liability Claims Cover More Than Slip-And-Fall Injuries
Litigation over injuries suffered on dangerous property is an area of law known as premises liability. Many people think these cases are limited to just slip-and-fall accidents, but the practice area encompasses any injuries caused by dangerous conditions on private property. Premises liability laws require business owners and operators to take appropriate measures to protect visitors from injuries caused by:
- Falling objects, such as items from shelves or improperly installed ceiling tiles
- Uneven, wet or slippery stairs or walking surfaces
- Loose carpeting
- Poorly lit parking lots
- Broken or loose handrails
- Lack of security in known high-crime areas
Although you may have been injured on commercial property, it is often the business’s insurance company that is responsible for paying out a slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall claim. These corporations hire lawyers who work hard to delay, complicate or prevent legitimate lawsuits from reaching New Mexico courts. Attorney Nathan Cobb is familiar with the methods that opposing counsel use to limit your settlement. You can be certain that he will develop an approach that addresses these tactics in order to secure a favorable outcome.
