What Is a Premises Liability Cause of Action?

A cause of action is the reason for bringing a claim for damages against someone. In a premises liability case, the cause is unsafe property and the injuries sustained from it. Usually, premises liability claims put the property owner as the defendant because it is the owner’s legal duty to ensure their property is free from any hazards. The property owner usually needs to pay for the victim’s losses.

The All-Too-Common Slip-and-Fall

Slip-and-fall injuries are the most common. The reasons for these injuries include the following:

  • Slip on spilled water
  • A poorly marked hazard, such as a raised threshold
  • Unkempt property
  • Uneven pavement or flooring
  • Building code violations
  • Mis-leveled elevators or malfunctioning escalators

Negligent Supervision of Property

This type of negligence comes in different forms:

  • A victim is injured by another guest due to a lack of security
  • A victim is injured due to unsafe recreational equipment
  • A victim is bitten by the resident’s pet
  • A victim has injuries from an elevator, escalator, or stairwell accident
  • A victim drowns in an unsafe or unrestricted swimming pool
  • A victim is injured in a fire or flood
  • A victim has injuries from a dangerous or defective work environment

Common Premises Liability Injuries

Hazardous premises in New Mexico may cause a variety of serious injuries. Some injuries may even require long-term medical care that results in thousands of dollars in medical expenses and lost wages.

Shapiro Law Team accepts premises liability claims in Albuquerque and the surrounding New Mexico areas involving, but not limited to, the following injuries:

  • Bone fractures
  • Head and brain injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Herniated disks
  • Neck injuries
  • Cuts and scrapes
  • Burns
  • Illnesses

Premises Liability and Apartment Injuries

If you experience an injury while on a rental property, the owner of the property could be liable. For instance, your landlord could be the one responsible for compensating you for your damages—especially if the injury is a result of a property defect or maintenance problem (like mold, a leaky pipe, or unsafe construction). The same applies if you are injured while staying at an Airbnb or hotel.

Always contact the Shapiro Law Team to ensure you are fairly compensated in any incident involving premises liability. We will take an in-depth look at your rights to ensure that you are getting fair and just compensation.
