Slip & Fall

SOUTHERN MARYLAND ATTORNEYSSafeguarding Your Rights After an Unexpected Fall

No one expects to suffer injuries from a simple trip or fall, yet such incidents can result in substantial medical bills, ongoing treatments, and extended time off work. Knowing your rights and whether someone else should be held responsible for the conditions that led to your fall is essential.

Determining Liability in Slip & Fall Incidents Not every slip and fall is someone else’s fault. However, sometimes, the conditions or hazards on a property—like an unmarked wet floor in a store—can be a direct result of negligence. Property owners must ensure their premises are reasonably safe. If they fail in this duty, they could be liable for any injuries.
