Many people may not fully realize the amount of time they spend on each day on property owned and maintained by other people or entities. Despite being on property owned by someone else, a person has a reasonable expectation of safety. If someone is injured as a result of negligence on the part of a Maryland property owner, he or she may decide to consult with the attorneys at Richin & Gaines, P. A., who have experience with premises liability lawsuits.
Often when someone falls in Maryland, they may assume that it was as a result of his or her own actions. However, those who own or manage the property may hold some or all liability. Factors to be examined when determining liability include whether there was poor lighting, unsafe parking lots, icy sidewalks, broken stairs or unsafe elevators that contributed to a person’s injuries.
Injuries suffered as a result of a slip-and-fall accident can often have serious, long-term consequences. In addition to expensive medical treatment, some people may also experience lost wages. Often, the financial consequences of such an incident can be as devastating as the physical.
Fortunately, Maryland has laws that allow victims of accidents involving premises liability to take legal action. Our attorneys can help these victims fully understand their options. We work with our clients to determine who holds liability and to help ensure that those parties are held accountable for the inaction that led to injuries. During an initial consultation, we can provide victims with an honest evaluation of their case.
