Premises Liability Continued.
Landlords also owe a duty to use reasonable care in preventing accidents in certain circumstances. If you are injured at an apartment complex, get the names, addresses, and phone numbers of all witnesses. Tell management about the fall and make sure that they make a written report. If there is a video camera, make sure that the company preserves the footage. It may help your case.

Governmental Entities. If you are the victim of the negligence of a governmental agency, contact an attorney immediately. There are special rules that apply to them.

Dog Bite cases. Dog bite cases are normally pretty good, unless the victim provoked the attacking animal. Get the names, addresses, and phone numbers of all witnesses. Report the bite to the pet’s owner. You may want to call the police as well, especially if you have an injury that appears serious.

Wrongful Death. The estate of a deceased person may recover damages for wrongful death. There are special rules for setting up the estate in New Mexico, so contact an attorney immediately. You may recover damages in addition to those of a normal negligence suit.
