Property owners in New Mexico are required to provide adequate lighting on their premises. An owner’s failure to do so can have devastating consequences, leading guests, customers, and visitors to become victims of slip & fall injuries or violent crimes.
If you or someone you love suffered injuries as a result of a property owner’s failure to provide adequate lighting on his or her premises, the law firm of Will Ferguson & Associates may be able to help. We pride ourselves on our ability to provide quality legal representation in a wide range of premises liability cases.
Consequences of Inadequate Lighting
It is important for property owners to take their obligation to adequately light their premises seriously as inadequate lighting can lead to a variety of horrific injuries.
Slip & fall accidents are made far more likely when the lighting conditions on the premises are suboptimal. While slips & falls may not seem like a serious problem, the Center for Disease Control (CDC), slip & falls are the leading cause of both fatal and nonfatal injuries among older adults. In addition, the CDC reports that slip & falls are the main cause of traumatic brain injury (TBI) in the United States.
Inadequate lighting can also increase the likelihood that a person may become the victim of a crime. In addition to the physical injuries that a victim may sustain during the commission of a crime, the emotional anguish that can often befall crime victims can take a significant toll on a person’s health and well-being. Remember, you are not alone. Contact the law office of Will Ferguson & Associates to schedule a free consultation with an experienced inadequate lighting liability attorney.
Why do you need an attorney?
Inadequate lighting claims often turn on issues of proximate cause and foreseeability that can be difficult to prove even in the best of circumstances. Working with a skilled inadequate lighting liability attorney is a surefire way to maximize your case’s likelihood of success.
Find Your Attorney Early
While New Mexico imposes a three-year statute of limitations to file a personal injury claim, premises liability cases are often governed by other laws that may impose additional requirements for filing a lawsuit. It is important to find an experienced attorney early so that you can make sure critical deadlines are not missed. In addition, gathering and retaining evidence early is particularly important in inadequate light cases where the defective condition is subject to modification or alteration.
