If You Fell, Who Is At Fault?

If you were hurt on public or private property, you may assume that the incident and subsequent injuries were your fault. In reality, you may have suffered harm because of circumstances beyond your control. As a slip-and-fall accident victim, you may have grounds to pursue financial compensation through a premises liability claim. Through this process, it is possible to hold liable parties accountable for hazardous property conditions. Maryland laws allow for victims of premises liability incidents to seek compensation for their losses and injuries.

At Richin & Gaines, P.A., our lawyers are very familiar with these laws, and we know how to pursue relief and recovery on your behalf. Whether you were hurt while visiting privately owned property or out in public, our team has the experience to identify liable parties and take the legal steps necessary to hold them accountable and get you the compensation you need.

Dangerous Conditions Cause Serious Accidents

You have a right to a reasonable expectation of personal safety. Slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accidents are often the result of negligent maintenance such as slippery floors, but there are other issues that could cause you harm while on public or private property, including:

  • Poor lighting
  • Broken stairs
  • Unsafe parking lots
  • Unsafe elevators
  • Icy sidewalks

No matter what caused your injuries, our attorneys are committed to your full recovery, including obtaining compensation for your medical bills, lost wages and rehabilitation needs.
