What contributes to premise liability incidents?

In Maryland, there are laws in place meant to keep people like you from being harmed while you are on someone else's property. This could be a friend's house, or even public property like a grocery store. So what dangers should you be on the lookout for? Greenblatt & Veliev, LLC, is here to list some of the most common ones.

Incidents usually occur on property when there are dangerous elements present. However, what could be considered a "dangerous element" changes rapidly depending on certain conditions. Some that potentially increase the potential of accidents include:

  • Uneven pavement
  • Poor lighting
  • Slippery floors
  • Unstable or loose railings
  • Poorly-maintained decks
  • Improperly stacked goods

In many cases, the dangers come from the ground you walk on. Uneven or slippery ground are some big offenders, along with unexpected steps and sudden drops. Anything that can't easily be detected that can cause your gait to be disrupted could result in a trip or fall.

Other issues center around employee carelessness. For example, mopping the floor and forgetting to put out a caution sign, or failing to put down salt if there is ice in the parking lot. These negligent actions can then impact everyone who visits the area.

If you have suffered from any sort of incident on someone else's property that has led to a life-changing injury, consider contacting our experienced attorneys to discuss your case. You can also visit the link above and take a look at our web page on premise liability cases for more information.
