Were You Injured On Someone Else’s Property?
New Mexico law requires that business owners and other operators of public space use reasonable care in the management and maintenance of their premises. They must avoid exposing others to an unreasonable risk of harm, and warn others of any dangerous condition if such a condition exists.
Unfortunately, accidents that result in serious injuries still occur. A thoroughly prepared accident injury claim is your chance to obtain proper compensation for damages caused by another party. The lawyers at Harvey & Foote Law Firm, LLC, in Albuquerque, New Mexico, have extensive experience and a successful track record in a wide variety of premises liability cases.

Contact us as soon as possible if you are injured on government property. We will assess the facts of your case and recommend the best steps to take.
What To Do After Suffering An Injury
If you are injured in a slip-and-fall accident in a public space, management often becomes overly attentive and may attempt to avoid or reduce its liability by asking you to sign a waiver of any culpability right at the scene. Speak with a lawyer who will protect your interests before agreeing to any terms offered by the business management or the insurance company.
Our lawyers help you consider all costs, including all current medical costs, future medical expenses and the financial impact a serious injury is likely to have on your income.
