Many residents of New Mexico who have been in a car accident or know someone who has are aware that it may be possible to bring a lawsuit against the at-fault party to recover compensation for their injuries. They may be surprised to hear, however, that if they are injured due to inadequate security or insufficient lighting on the property of someone else, they may be able to bring a premises liability lawsuit.
Unfortunately, sometimes a person is attacked in a parking lot with inadequate lighting or insufficient security. This can cause a whole host of physical and psychological problems. Not only must the victim heal from their physical injuries, which could take a lot of time and money, but they also will have psychological wounds to heal from as well. While they may be able to hold their attacker liable, what they may not know is that in some circumstances, they can hold the property owner liable for inadequate lighting or insufficient security.
However, premises liability lawsuits can be very complex. People in the position of having to file a premises liability lawsuit deserve to be able to focus all their energies on healing, without having to worry about the legal nuances that come with filing a lawsuit. That’s when the help of an attorney becomes essential.
For example, the professionals at Martinez, Hart, Thompson & Sanchez, P.C., have a combined 85 years of experience in representing clients in premises liability lawsuits, and they aim to hold wrongdoers accountable for their clients’ damages so that in the end, New Mexico is a safer place to live, work and play.
