Aggressive Representation For Premises Liability Cases

Falling down can lead to severe personal injuries. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention lists slip-and-fall accidents as the leading cause of traumatic brain injuries. Dangerous conditions on property can lead to a wide range of serious injuries such as broken hips, damage to ligaments and other debilitating injuries.

Unfortunately, some landlords, property managers and businesses still fail to properly maintain their properties, creating hazardous conditions for other people who are legally allowed to enter the premises.

40 Years Of Experience On Your Side

At Greenblatt & Veliev, LLC, in Rockville, we take premises liability claims seriously. Backed by 40 years of experience handling personal injury cases, our legal team knows how to investigate accidents and hold negligent parties responsible for the serious injuries they have caused. Premises liability claims are frequently complex.

We help clients understand the law and how it applies to their case. Our attorneys work to identify sources of financial compensation to maximize our clients' recovery after a slip and fall or injury due to a poorly maintained sidewalk or parking lot.

It is important to note that many premises liability claims involve dangerous conditions on rental properties as well as in public areas of condominiums and apartment complexes. Establishments such as grocery stores, bars and restaurants have a duty to keep the premises safe for patrons.

Common Hazards That Cause Accidents

Common dangerous conditions on property that can cause harm include:

  • Spilled liquids or debris on floors in stores, bars and restaurants creating slippery conditions
  • Poorly scraped, slippery parking lots, sidewalks and stairs that create serious slip-and-fall accidents
  • Poorly maintained, uneven pavement causing a trip hazard
  • Poorly maintained or improperly lighted stairwells
  • Rusted, loose or unstable railings that lead to falls in a stairwell
  • Improperly stacked goods on store shelves that lead to crushing injuries as items fall
  • Poorly maintained decks, leading to instability or collapse
  • Unsafe conditions or poorly maintained swimming pools

In order to evaluate your likelihood of recovering damages, we listen attentively to what happened related to your fall or other accident. We investigate the circumstances to discover potential building code violations. We analyze who was responsible for maintaining the area and thoroughly evaluate the overall maintenance of the property.

We draw our substantial experience handling Maryland personal injury claims to determine the existence of negligence, who may be responsible and what insurance coverage may apply. Detailed investigation, analysis and aggressive advocacy aimed at producing meaningful results are strengths of our personal injury practice.
