Slip & Fall Attorneys Serving Maryland
Free Consultation Regarding Your Slip, Trip, or Fall
Maryland property owners are required by law to maintain their premises and ensure that they meet city and state regulations for safety. If a property owner or third party is negligence and a hazardous condition exists on the property, serious injuries may result. The victim may be a customer of a business, an invited guest to a residence, or someone utilizing public property, such as parks or public transportation. In these cases, the property owner or other at-fault party may be held legally responsible in a court of law for damages that occurred because of their negligence.
Slip and fall accidents are notoriously complex and difficult to prove, but Alpert Schreyer Poe, LLC has the resources, manpower, and skill to succeed. We have been serving the injured for over 30 years and are standing by to see how we can help if you or a loved one has been injured in a slip, trip, or fall accident.
What Causes Slip, Trip & Fall Accidents?
Factors that can cause a slip and fall accident vary greatly, and it is important for an experienced attorney to examine every detail of the incident. 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 or a property owner who does not properly clear snow or ice from walkways.
The following are examples of hazards that may cause slip and fall accidents:
- Clutter and debris
- Defective or faulty design
- Low-grade building materials
- Poor construction quality
- Poor maintenance
- Ice or snow on walkways, stairs, and sidewalks
- 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
After a Slip & Fall Accident
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. We also highly recommend discussing your legal options with an attorney.
