Who is liable in slip-and-fall accidents?

People slip-and-fall for a number of reasons. Sometimes a lack of paying attention may be to blame, but other times, poor property conditions may be the problem. Slip-and-fall accidents happen, and when they do it is okay for victims -- whether in Maryland or elsewhere -- to question who is responsible for any damages sustained.

Considering filing a premises liability claim? Help is available.

Although it is sad but true, people get hurt on other individuals' property all of the time. While accidents do happen, there are situations in which injuries may have been caused by property owners' negligence. In such instances, in accordance with the laws of Maryland, victims may pursue premises liability claims against those believed responsible for any damages they have sustained.

Premises liability and pool accidents, who's responsible?

Swimming is a popular pastime for both children and adults in Maryland and elsewhere. There are those who swim for exercise, fun or even competitively. No matter why a person may love to spend time in the water, the simple truth is swimming pools present a number of dangers for users. When a swimming pool-related accident does occur, victims -- or in the event of fatality -- their surviving family members may question who is responsible. If it is believed that a pool owner was negligent in any way, ultimately contributing to an injury or death, a premises liability claim may be filed in order to seek compensation for any losses sustained.

What is a condo association's role in premises liability?

Condo living is fairly popular in places all around the country, including Maryland. For those who want to own, but do not want the hassle of a yard or other outdoor maintenance, living in a condo community can be the right fit. As these units are individually owned, who would be held responsible if someone was injured on the property? The plaintiff in a case in another state believes the premises liability falls on the condo association.

Maryland dangerous property: accidents on sidewalks

Accidents on sidewalks are more common than one would think. Cracks, holes, gaps and other trip hazards can actually do a lot of harm to unsuspecting pedestrians. Maryland residents who have been hurt while walking on a poorly maintained sidewalk have every right to question who might be liable for any damages sustained due to this dangerous property.

Determining liability in slip-and-fall accidents

When a person is injured on another individual's property, it can be difficult to determine who is considered liable for that injury. Slip-and-fall accidents affect thousands of people every year across the country, including some right here in Maryland. While some of these accidents result in only minor injuries, some may have more serious outcomes. In these cases, it is only natural to question factors that may have contributed to the incident.

Dangerous property conditions may lead to injuries

From time to time, Maryland residents may find themselves on property where the conditions are less than ideal. Conditions such as wet floors, poorly lit stairwells or walkways, building structural issues and broken railings are just a few concerns. There are numerous circumstances that could result in injury if property grounds are not properly taken care of or if adequate warning signs are not posted. Dangerous property conditions exist in a wide variety of places, and when someone does get hurt, they may have questions about who may be liable for their injuries.

Family members injured after clubhouse deck collapses

After the long winter we’ve had here in Baltimore it is no wonder why many residents are looking forward to spring and warmer temperatures. Time spent outdoors enjoying the warm spring sunshine can be a special treat after months of snow and cold. Many people like to relax and soak up a few rays outside on their backyard deck.

Man assaulted in pharmacy, files lawsuit against Rite Aid

When a person goes to the pharmacy in Baltimore to fill a prescription, they do so with the expectation that the prescription will help them feel better. After all, the major goal of pharmacies is to help their customers heal and improve their health.
