How can I make my property safe for trick-or-treaters?
Your property must be safe this Halloween if you are expecting trick-or-treaters. To do so, you must ensure that your front steps are functional and not defective. You must also ensure that your steps are free of any safety hazards. It is important that you ensure your walkways, porch, and stairs are all well-lit. Finally, be sure that your Halloween decorations are placed carefully to avoid any slips and falls.
What should I do if my child gets hurt on someone else’s property?
You may have a valid premises liability claim if you or your child has been injured on another person’s property due to their negligence. You will have to gather evidence immediately to prove your claim. Evidence should include the following:
- Photos of the safety hazards that led to your accident
- Contact information of any witnesses
- Police report
- Medical documents from your medical treatment.
Finally, you should retain the services of a skilled personal injury lawyer who will work to satisfy the burden of proof to recover the compensation you or your child deserves.
What is the statute of limitations for premises liability claims in Maryland?
The statute of limitations for premises liability claims is generally three years in Maryland, meaning that you will have three years from the date of your accident to file your claim. This time period is important to understand because if you fail to file your claim within three years, you will risk being permanently time-barred from suing. The sooner you can bring attention to your claim, the better. To begin this process immediately, reach out to our experienced personal injury attorney today.
