What is Premises Liability?

There are few things worse than going about your business, either at the supermarket, in a parking lot, or even at a friend’s house, only to find yourself seriously injured due to a safety hazard that simply should not have existed. If you find yourself in this situation, there is a very good chance you deserve financial compensation for your injuries. You should not have to fight for this compensation alone. Our firm has helped countless individuals through the claims process, and we are ready to do the same for you. Please continue reading and reach out to our experineced Maryland personal injury attorneys to learn more about what we can do for you. Here are some of the questions you may have:

How do I know if I have a valid premises liability claim?

To win a premises liability claim, you will have to gather and present sufficient evidence to satisfy the burden of proof. Simply put, if you can prove that you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence, then you should win the compensation you deserve.

How do I sue someone in a premises liability claim?

If you are injured on someone else’s property, the first thing you will have to do is take pictures of the accident, ask anyone who witnessed your accident for their contact information, and call the police if necessary. From here, you should seek immediate medical attention and ensure you receive all medical documentation from your physician regarding your injuries. Finally, you must retain the services of an experienced Maryland personal injury attorney who is capable of proving that the property owner either knew or should have reasonably known about the safety hazard present, failed to take action to fix or correct it, and that you were seriously injured and suffered significant damages as a result. Our firm has been helping the wrongly injured for years, and we are ready to help you, too. Give us a call today.

How long will I have to sue a property owner for an injury in Maryland?

If you are someone who has been injured on someone else’s property, you will have to file your personal injury claim within the state’s statute of limitations. Since the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Maryland is, generally, three years, under most circumstances, you will have three years from the date of your accident to take legal action against the party responsible. Do not make the mistake of waiting too long to file, for if you do, you will most likely be time-barred from suing.
