You Have Questions, We Have Answers
When you get hurt on someone else’s property, knowing your rights and the owner’s responsibilities can get complicated. Is the property owner or landlord responsible? Can I be compensated for medical bills and missed work? The property owner says it’s all my fault, do I still have a premises liability claim?
Your specific case will depend on many factors in Maryland. Hiring an experienced personal injury attorney familiar with premises liability law in our state is essential.
- Were you an invitee, licensee, trespasser, or bare licensee?
- Did your injury happen because of a failure to remove or label a hazard?
- Could the accident have been prevented through regular property upkeep?
- How obvious was the danger, and how long was it there?
- Was a child hurt because of an unguarded “attractive nuisance”?
- How long has it been since your accident?
