February 24th, 2020
Though most of us do not worry about sustaining a serious injury simply walking down the street, or on the way into or out of a store, the truth is, slip and fall accidents happen more frequently than we'd like to think. If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident, you are most likely now seeking financial compensation to help you get back on your feet again. Please continue reading and speak with our experienced Maryland personal injury attorney to learn more about how we can help you file a premises liability lawsuit.
Where do most slip and fall accidents happen?
Slip and fall accidents, unfortunately, can happen virtually anywhere. However, some of the most common types of slip and fall accidents we see occur at hotels, town pools, parking lots, sidewalks, apartment complexes, and more.
How do I sue for a slip and fall injury in Maryland?
Those injured in slip and fall accidents must first retain the services of an experienced personal injury attorney who knows the ins and outs of the claims process. Once you do, your attorney will work to prove that the property owner either knew or should have reasonably known about the safety hazard present, failed to take action to fix it and that you suffered significant damages as a result. To prove your claim, our firm will work to uncover various types of evidence, including pictures of the unsafe property conditions, surveillance footage of the accident, witness statements, police reports, and more.
How long do I have to file a personal injury claim in Maryland?
In Maryland, individuals are granted a certain period of time to file a lawsuit against a negligent party. This timeframe is known as the statute of limitations. Since Maryland has a three-year statute of limitations, you will, generally, have three years from the date of your accident to take legal action against the property owner who caused your injuries. If you wait any longer than three years, you will most likely be barred from suing. Do not let this happen. We are here to help--all you have to do is ask.
