Premises Liability

Send to friendPrinter-friendly version

If you have been injured while on another person’s property due to a dangerous condition that the owner caused, knew of, or should have been aware of, you may have a valid premises liability claim against the property owner. In Maryland, the law of premises liability (a.k.a slip and fall) was designed to hold the owners or occupiers of property liable to individuals injured while present on their property. Unfortunately, in the State of Maryland, it has become increasingly more difficult for a person injured on the property of another to demonstrate that his or her injuries were caused by the negligence or recklessness of owner or occupier of the land. As such, it is very important for you to immediately consult with an attorney to investigate this claim on your behalf to ensure that important evidence is preserved and any witnesses are immediately interviewed.

Although often overlooked, an owner of a property can also be held liable for inadequate security. Unfortunately, a property owner’s failure to provide adequate and ample security on its premises can result in injuries being sustained by assault and battery. In some cases, even death may result from inadequate security. A person injured or killed due to the negligent maintenance and security of a property leaves the injured person or their family with the legal right to pursue a personal injury claim against the owner, landlord, or property manager.

If you have been injured while on the premises of another, please contact us to determine whether you have a valid, compensable claim.
