Property Owner’s Responsibility in Slip and Fall Accidents in Frederick, MD

People trip and fall every day in places like Frederick, Walkersville, Clover Hill, New Market and Libertytown. It is such a common occurrence that the state of Maryland has raised the bar for premises liability cases. It is not enough that you fell down on someone else’s property; you have to be able to prove that the property owner was aware of a problem like uneven sidewalks or cracked curbs and ignored it.

On the outside of the property, the property owner needs to address such problems in a timely manner. At the very least, tripping hazards like uneven sidewalks and cracked curbs should be clearly marked or barricaded for safety until they are promptly fixed. Inside the property, one of the most common hazards is having wet, slippery and uneven floors. Once again, it is the responsibility of the property owner to mark the hazard with clear signage.

How to Respond to a Trip and Fall Accident Near Me in Frederick, MD

The injuries from a fall can vary. Sometimes, a fall leaves you with nothing but a bruised ego. However, a serious fall can cause broken bones and long-term pain and suffering. Falling backward on slippery floors can lead to a head injury and brain damage. If you have suffered significant injuries in a fall, the first step is to seek medical attention. Make certain that the doctors keep a clear record of your injuries and any treatments you receive.

As soon as possible, contact the experienced trip and fall attorneys at Whitney, LLP, who can help prepare your case and assess the proper damages. One of our lawyers will gather evidence from the site of the fall that will help prove the property owner’s negligence. This work needs to be started quickly as evidence needs to be preserved, including video surveillance, if it is available. The further you are from the date of the fall, the harder it could be to mount a convincing case.
