Get Compensation for Injuries Sustained on Unsafe Property
Premises liability lawsuits, often called slip and fall cases, involve injuries sustained on another person’s property because of a defective or dangerous condition. Shapiro Zwanetz & Lake routinely represents people who have sustained injuries from a slip and fall, trip and fall, or other injury on the property of another. We hand selects each case to ensure legitimate suits can be filed and legitimate damages can be illustrated. We work tirelessly to ensure that each and every case is given the personal attention that each client expects.
Premises Liability Lawsuits
Maryland property and business owners have a legal duty to protect those who come onto their property from dangerous conditions. However, this duty is often overlooked and serious, sometimes catastrophic, injuries result.
There are numerous conditions which can lead to premises liability lawsuits, such as:
- Snow or ice not properly removed
- Leaks or spills on slippery floors
- Poorly placed carpets or electrical cords in walkways
- Freshly cleaned floors with inadequate warnings
- Defective pavement or sidewalks
- Unfenced swimming pools, swing sets, or trampolines
Technically, the property owner has no obligation to warn of open and obvious defects. However, if a visitor suffers an injury on some open defect doing something that is not unreasonable, the property owner may be liable. Thus, a thorough and complete evaluation/investigation of the circumstances surrounding each premises liability is essential. The Howard County premises liability lawyers at Shapiro Zwanetz & Lake has precisely the skill set, resources, and focus on meticulous service to give each case the personal attention it deserves.
Making Your Case
It is important to note that when you are hurt on another person’s property, the owner of the said property will not automatically be considered liable for your injuries—negligence must be established on the part of the property owner. To save you time and money, Shapiro Zwanetz & Lake will immediately review the circumstances surrounding your injury and determine if you are entitled to compensation.
