Maryland Premises Liability Lawyer
Property owners are generally able to do with their property whatever they see fit. But, there are limits to the freedom that property owners can exercise–especially when the property is open to the public. In particular, it is important that property owners maintain at least a basic level of upkeep on their premises in order to prevent dangerous conditions from developing. If they fail to do so and, as a result, someone gets injured, property owners may be held liable for the damages caused by their negligence.
At Fintus Injury Firm, we know that many people in Maryland sustain injuries as a result of negligent property owners. We also know that many of these injuries have devastating impacts on lives. For these victims, financial compensation may be critical to dealing with the consequences. Fortunately, property owners who allow unsafe conditions to persist on their premises can typically be held liable, through a premises liability lawsuit.
Premises Liability Lawsuits
With our deep understanding of Maryland personal injury law and dedication to our clients, we can help you get the compensation you deserve in the following types of cases:
- Slip and Fall Accidents – Businesses have a duty to keep their floors safe from spills and obstructions, or at least to clearly warn of any danger.
- Dog Bites and Animal Attacks – If an animal belonging to the occupant or owner of a property attacks you, you may be able to recover compensation for your injuries.
- Child Care Negligence – If your child was injured in a day care center or school, you may have a premises liability case.
- Negligent Security and Dangerous Situations – Businesses have a duty to take reasonable measures to prevent criminals from attacking customers, such as ensuring that parking lots are well lit and keeping the premises secure.
- Defective Stairway Accidents – The people in control of a building or property have a duty to maintain any stairways in a safe condition, or to make it clear to visitors that they are dangerous.
- Swimming Pool Accidents – Swimming areas must be properly maintained and attended so that visitors–especially children–do not get injured.
- Elevator and Escalator Accidents – Retail and commercial establishments must ensure that poorly maintained or installed elevators and escalators do not injure guests or customers.
- Snow and Ice Injuries – The owners or occupants of buildings have a duty to take reasonable steps to prevent snow or ice accumulation from injuring visitors.
