New Mexico Trip and Fall Injury Lawyers
Injured From a Fall?
If you were hurt from a fall in a store, you may be able to file a claim against the store for your injuries.
In New Mexico, stores owners have a legal duty to make sure the property is safe for those who enter. This means that stores must warn you of any dangerous conditions that they are aware of or should have been aware of. Even if store employees did not create the dangerous conditions that led to your fall, you still may be able to seek compensation if you were injured due to factors that they would have been reasonably aware of.
Injuries from trip and fall accidents can be devastating and result in significant medical bills. Fortunately, you do not have to face this difficult time alone.

I did not know what to do. I had never been hurt in a wreck before and this was a major accident that was not my fault. I reached out to Zinda Law Group and they were fantastic, answered all my questions, got me help immediately, and took care of everything!!
There comes a time when you need someone in your corner that you can trust. Our time came when we knew we needed the advice and counsel of an attorney. The day we walked into Zinda Law Group we knew we were covered.
There is a reason why this law firm has a 5 star rating. My experience with personal injury attorney Joe Caputo and all of the staff at Zinda Law Group has been excellent... I would definitely recommend Zinda Law Group.
Maria Ciara-Former Client
This is a really great firm! They settled my personal injury case in a year. Throughout the whole process, they were keeping in touch with me and helping me get the best treatment possible. They honestly know what they are doing. It was a pleasure working with these guys.
Everyone was so professional and was very interested in helping me with my issues. They were very upfront and honest about what I could expect.
I contacted Zinda Law Group after getting nowhere on my own with a personal injury case. I am so thankful I did. They took it off my plate and handled everything from appointments, to phone calls, and emails.
Store Responsibility for Trip and Fall Injuries
A person who is injured from a trip and fall may file a premises liability claim against the store. A premises liability claim alleges that there was a dangerous condition on the property that injured the victim, and that the store had a duty to remedy the condition, but failed to do so. The following must be proved in a premises liability claim:
- A dangerous condition existed in the store
- The store knew or should have been aware of the condition
- The store failed to remedy the situation
- The victim’s injury was caused by the dangerous condition
To prove that the store should have known of the condition, a victim may use evidence of prior accidents or the fact that there were store employees in the area who could have seen the dangerous condition and failed to remedy it. If no sufficient attempt was made to fix the problem, and it ended up injuring someone, then the store may be liable.
Do I Need a Lawyer?
Taking appropriate steps in the early stages of a claim can be critical to obtaining a fair resolution. If you were injured as the result of negligence in maintaining a safe environment for shoppers, you should obtain a consultation with a personal injury attorney who has experience pursuing this type of case.
