When someone is injured while on someone else’s or a business’s property, they may benefit from the help of a premises liability law firm Maryland residents can rely on. Land and building owners, renter-tenants, and in some cases, the manager of a property or building, may be legally responsible when someone is injured on their property. If you or someone close to you has been injured on a property as the result of the property’s negligent upkeep and maintenance, or if someone close to you has died because of this, the injured person and/or their family may be entitled to compensation.
A person who is injured while on someone else’s property may have a premises liability claim against the property or building owner. It does not matter whether the property was someone’s private residence, an apartment building, an office building or on public property, to name just a few of the places where a person may have a premises liability claim- the party or parties that own or who are in charge of the place where someone was injured, may be liable for the victim’s injury.
Premises liability is a legal concept that usually comes into play when a person is injured on someone else’s property because of an unsafe or defective condition of the property. The injured person may have a personal injury claim that they may be able to seek compensation for their injuries with. Like the majority of personal injury claims, a premises liability claim is usually based on negligence. The injured victim (the plaintiff, often with the help of a lawyer) needs to prove that the property owner or manager, or the renter-tenant, was negligent with respect to the maintenance and upkeep of safety features on the property.
