Premises Liability Claims

If you were injured on someone else’s property, the property or business owner may be liable. Property and business owners have a duty to provide a safe environment to visitors. That includes business owners, landlords, friends, family and employers. Property owners have a duty to correct hazards or warn you to avoid the hazards.

Premises liability covers a wide range of accidents such as slip and fall, swimming pool accidents, and injuries caused in criminal attacks. However, you have to prove that the property or business owner knew or should have known about the hazard and failed to warn you. To win your case, you will need the help of an experienced Maryland premises liability attorney.
