Slip and Fall Accident Lawyers in Maryland
Slip and Fall Injuries
Slip and fall accidents occur primarily on someone’s property and are categorized in the area of premises liability. Owners are required by law to maintain their property and ensure that it meets city and state regulations for safety. There are circumstances, however, where negligence on the part of a property owner or a third party can lead to the serious injury of someone, such as a customer of a business, an invited guest to a residence, or someone utilizing public property such as parks or public transportation. When premises are not properly maintained and someone is injured as a result, the property owner can be held legally responsible in a court of law for damages that occurred because of their negligence.
Factors that can cause a slip and fall accident vary greatly, and it is important that an experienced Waldorf personal injury attorney examine every detail of a injury case. Certain questions need to be asked in order to determine liability. For example, if the owner of a business is aware that there is a loose tile on the businesses’ floor and a customer trips on it and is injured, the business owner can be held liable for the customer’s injuries. The same may apply for a customer who slips on a wet floor at a department store that did not put up proper warning signs.
What Are Some Causes of Slip, Trip and Fall Accidents?
- Clutter and debris
- Defective or faulty design
- Low grade building materials
- Poor construction quality
- Poor maintenance
- Puddles or spilled liquids that are not immediately cleaned up
- Improper signage or lack of warning of wet floor conditions, low ceilings, ramps, or steps
When a person is injured in a slip and fall accident, first and foremost, they should seek medical attention for their injuries and keep a record of everything from tests and treatment to any physical therapy or rehabilitation that may be needed. Proper documentation is one of the best possible tools to aid in holding a negligent party responsible for their oversight.
