What defines a valid premises liability claim?

A premises liability claim is typically considered a valid one when an injured party can prove that the property owner either knew or should have known about the unsafe property conditions, failed to take appropriate action to resolve the issue, and that the person was injured and incurred damages as a result.

What should I do if I’m hurt on another person’s property?

Proving premises liability claims isn’t always easy, and simply filing a claim is not enough to warrant a person being compensated for their damages. This is why you and your Baltimore County personal injury attorney will have to gather and present evidence demonstrating the cause and extent of your injuries. This can include pictures of the property conditions that caused your injuries, videos of the accident, witness testimony, medical documentation, a copy of the police accident report filed at the scene, and more. Our firm has helped countless accident victims through each phase of the claims process in the past, and we are prepared to assist you as well.

Is there a time limit on premises liability claims in Maryland?

Yes, there is, and it is known as the statute of limitations. In most cases, the statute of limitations for premises liability claims in the state of Maryland is three years, giving accident victims three years from the date their accident happened to sue the party responsible for their injuries. Our firm is prepared to help you today, and the sooner you reach out to us, the sooner we can begin fighting for your rightful compensation.
