Here are some of the questions you may have:

How do I know if my premises liability claim is valid?

To win a premises liability claim, you will have to prove that a property owner failed to take the necessary actions to ensure their property was safe and you were injured as a result. As long as you can prove you were injured as a direct result of a property owner’s negligence, you should have a valid premises liability claim.

How can an attorney help me win a premises liability claim?

An attorney can help you gather and present the evidence you need to satisfy the burden of proof in your personal injury claim. Some of the most useful evidence when it comes to winning these claims is as follows:

  • Pictures of the dangerous property conditions
  • Videos of the accident as it happened
  • Witness statements corroborating the claim
  • A copy of the police report or store incident report
  • Medical documentation regarding your injuries

How long will I have to file a premises liability claim in Maryland?

Here in the state of Maryland, those who’ve been wrongfully injured will have three years from the date their accident occurred to take legal action against the liable party, in accordance with the state’s statute of limitations. If you make the mistake of waiting longer than three years to file your claim, you will most likely be barred from doing so. Our firm has helped countless people who’ve been injured because of unsafe property conditions over the years, and if you’re one of them, you shouldn’t hesitate to pick up the phone and give a Leonardtown personal injury lawyer from our firm a call.
