Slip and Fall Injuries
Accomplished Baltimore Attorneys Handle Slip and Fall Claims
Many of these accidents are caused by property owners or managers failing to take proper precautions to prevent or eliminate hazardous conditions. Under Maryland law, defendants can avoid liability at trial if they show that the victim’s negligence contributed to their injury. This is why it’s essential to retain an experienced attorney who knows how to counter defenses and recover damages for medical costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Located in Baltimore, Holzman & Dickriede has worked for decades to see that individuals hurt in falls receive fair payment from the parties responsible for their injuries.
Knowledgeable advocates pursue justice against careless property owners
Winning damages in a premises liability action requires proof that a duty of care was violated and that the violation caused an injury. Accidents can occur at a variety of places where individuals are permitted to be on someone else’s property, including:
A floor that’s wet due to a spill or recent mopping creates a danger to unsuspecting shoppers. If you’ve been hurt in a supermarket, mall or some other retail establishment, we can determine if appropriate care was taken.
Whether you’re talking about fast food or fine dining, a slip and fall injury might occur due to hurrying waiters, inattentive patrons or tables that were placed too close to each other.
Poor building maintenance is often most dangerous on stairs and escalators. If you’ve tripped or fallen due to a loose handrail, shaky step or some other problem, we’ll take on the businesses and individuals at fault for the hazardous condition.
Cracked pavement on a sidewalk or in a parking lot could result in broken bones, a traumatic brain injury or some other type of physical harm. This is especially true if lighting is inadequate. We’ll investigate to see if your injury could have been avoided had proper attention been given to the dangerous condition.
Children are particularly vulnerable when a property owner avoids its duty to maintain safe premises. Our personal injury lawyers pursue full relief for all slip-and-fall victims.
