Premises Liability Attorney Services: Maryland

Premises Liability - MarylandIf you have been injured on someone else’s property in Maryland, there is a good chance that you might need a good team of Maryland premises liability attorneys to help you wade through the complicated process of trying to get compensation for your injury. The dedicated lawyers at Cohen & Cohen have helped people in situations that may be similar to the one that you are finding yourself in.

While many people who have filed premise liability lawsuits have gotten the compensation that they were entitled to, premise liability claims can be hard to prove for a variety of reasons.

Contact a law office with Maryland premises liability attorneys who know how to fight the often, tricky system of trying to get compensation for this type of case.

Proving Premises Liability

Proving a premise liability case can be hard because it has to be proven that a property owner was negligent in their ownership and maintenance of a property. In this respect, if someone is negligent, they have paid no or too little attention to something. Some examples of these situations include but are not limited to:

  • Inadequately lit walkways and stairs
  • Not having safety rails on stairways and/or defective stairs
  • Uneven surfaces
  • Slippery surfaces (wet or oily floors, etc.)
  • Unsecured rugs or carpets
  • Unsecured thresholds
  • Extension cords
  • Accumulation of ice or snow
  • Loose or broken floors, sidewalks, steps, or stairs
  • Inadequate building security
  • Swimming pool accidents

The situations on the above list may seem like they would not be hard to prove but they can be.

An experienced team of Maryland premises liability attorneys knows the importance of collecting evidence as soon as possible and, discreetly when necessary. When someone is in charge of a property that someone else was injured on, there is a good chance that they will get rid of the evidence of their neglect (by fixing it) before you are well enough to get proper documentation for it.

Even though it may seem obvious to you that a property owner or manager was negligent, just because you were injured on property under someone else’s care does not mean that the property owner was negligent. Even if a property was in an unsafe condition, it does not prove that the property owner was negligent. It has to be proved beyond a doubt that someone was negligent or should have reasonably known that the premises were in an unsafe condition, and that they still did not take proper steps and precautions to make it a safe space.

The above and many reasons not mentioned here are reasons why it may be in your best interest to talk to law firm that has Maryland premise liability attorneys who are well versed in this area of the law.

I am very satisfied with the services provided by Cohen and Cohen. They were able to settle my case within less than a year and settled a fair amount in which I was expecting. They communicated very well throughout the process as well as made sure all boxes were checked off to ensure i received the best care and communication. I will recommend the services to anyone in these situations. Riley and Brittney were certainly very helpful during the process.

Lucas Baudry was my rep for this accident claim, and even though I had LOADS of questions and was a bit impatient, he was always responsive and quick to reply. We’re wrapping up now, and I really feel like he tried to have the best results in the end, and didn’t drag it out more than need be.
