Truth or Consequences is a city in Sierra County. While its name is long, it is commonly known in the State as ‘T or C’. It was originally named Hot Springs, but the name of the city was changed to match the name of a popular radio program on NBC in the 1950s.
Truth or Consequences has approximately 99 liters of hot springs flow running throughout it. It hosts 10 spa facilities, and it is actually known as a “spa city.” The city itself has about 7,300 people living in it, but it is also a popular tourist destination for many citizens of New Mexico.
Slip-and-Fall Accidents in Truth or Consequences
In T and C, as in other parts of the country, slip and fall accidents are common, and they can happen on any type of terrain or substance. They are more likely to occur on uneven terrain or surfaces that have been covered with a liquid, such as water – important to remember in a spa city.
While a slip and fall may often seem minor, they can lead to serious injuries. Broken bones, severe bruising, and even a life-altering injury like being permanently wheelchair bound or having long-lasting back problems can result from someone slipping and falling due to a landowner’s inability to properly maintain his or her business or land.
The main theory behind a slip and fall lawsuit is negligence. Negligence occurs when someone owes a duty to another person; that duty is breached; and the breach of that duty caused an injury and damages. If negligence can be proven to a judge or jury, one can typically recover damages from the land or business owner.
Recoveries typically include compensation for:
- Medical bills
- Loss of ability to earn a living
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
There is no one set value for the amount of money one can recover if they have slipped and fallen on another’s property. Each case is different, and seeking the advice of an experienced personal injury attorney is the best way of ensuring your slip and fall case is handled properly and with the utmost care.
