Albuquerque Slip and Fall Attorney

When people slip or trip and fall in public, it is common for the person to get up as quickly as possible to show that they are alright and to lessen the embarrassment of falling. They may also not feel injured severely enough to report the fall; However, it is crucial and important to report your fall to the restaurant or store management, so that they have a record of your fall and can report it to their insurance company as soon as possible. A great way to assist in your case when presented to an Albuquerque slip and fall attorney, is to take photos of any liquids or improper maintenance before they begin cleaning up the condition that caused you to fall. The saying is that a picture can be worth 1,000 words, but in the case of slip or trip and fall accidents, a photograph may mean the difference between getting a negligent business to pay for your injuries or not.

It is also important to get medical treatment if you have been injured. It may be embarrassing to ride in an ambulance after a fall, but injuries from falls can be even more severe than some car accidents due to the lack of cushion to the body as it hits a hard surface. This, combined with the suddenness of losing your footing, can increase your chances of falling in an awkward position, therefore increases the severity of your injuries. Common injuries from falls include damage to the wrists or hands, as people try to catch themselves or break their fall.

Differences In “Slip And Fall” And “Trip And Fall” Claims In New Mexico

There is a difference between “slip and fall” accidents and “trip and fall” accidents. If you file the wrong type of claim, the insurance company could deny it. Here are the differences between these claims:

  • Slip and fall accidents: The facts and details as to how and why you fell are very important. If hazardous conditions (such as spills) are created by the property owner or their employees, or if the spill is neglected for long periods of time, property owners can and should be held responsible for causing falls.

  • Trip and fall accidents: These cases are usually easier to prove. If there is a structural or maintenance problem, such as uneven walkways, cracks in floors or broken steps, property owners must provide proper warnings until it can be fixed.
