Maryland Premises Liability Lawyers In Silver Springs

Maryland Premises Liability Lawyers In Silver SpringsAt The Ray Legal Group, LLC we have handled cases for many clients to resolve premises liability issues. These lawsuits occur when an injury takes place on property belonging to another person or entity such as a home of someone else, business, schools, sidewalks, and other public places. It is the responsibility of the property owner to maintain a safe environment for visitors. Slip, trip, and fall injuries make common premises liability cases. In most instances, property owners will have liability insurance that will insure them from liability resulting from maintaining an unsafe or dangerous property. When these insurance companies unfairly deny your bodily injury claim, our attorneys work diligently to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve by pursuing litigation including trial if necessary.

What Damages Can I Recover In A Premise Liability Claim Or Lawsuit?

If you have been hurt on someone else’s property as a result of that person (or company’s) negligence, recklessness, or carelessness, you have the right to obtain compensation for the injuries suffered. This compensation is often called damages because it includes all the harm and losses suffered as a result of the injury.

First and foremost, this means reimbursement for the medical bills and treatments required as a result of the injury. From doctor’s bills to surgery, hospitalization and medication, all these expenses pile up quickly and are hard for most people to afford without a personal injury claim against the premise owner or operator’s insurance.

However, the compensation you have a right to does not end there. You also have a right to be reimbursed for any time lost from work, both in the past and any future inability to work. This can become quite complicated to calculate but also quite expensive for severe injuries.

Finally, you can claim emotional and non-economic damages and harm for the pain and psychological suffering endured as a result of your accident and injury.

How Long Do I Have To File A Premise Liability Lawsuit?

In Maryland, you have three years to file your personal injury premise liability claim, which might sound like a long time, but that is never a reason to delay.

While the clock might not run out on your ability to claim for the full three years, evidence can very quickly disappear, and it takes time for you and your lawyer to build a strong enough case and claim. So you should always get in touch with one as soon as possible.

Unfortunately, you might not realize right away that you even have a claim. Perhaps your injury did not appear very severe at first, or you did not know something crucial about the negligence of the premise owner or operators. Do not worry, however; the premise liability statute of limitations, that three-year deadline, only starts when you discover you have a case or claim.

What Is Contributory Negligence? How Does It Apply To Premise Liability Claims?

Unfortunately for accident and fall victims in Maryland, the state follows a very outdated and old-fashioned rule called contributory negligence.

Under this rule, if you are even slightly responsible for the accident or injury that has happened to you, you cannot claim financial compensation for the injury. The standard requires that you have done everything reasonable to avoid injury, which can mean even the slightest error or inattention during the incident could cost you your ability to claim damages at all.

However, Maryland premise liability and personal injury attorneys have had years of experience battling out these cases in and out of court. So do not despair; even if you are unsure of your ability to claim compensation, contact a personal injury or premise liability attorney for an honest assessment of your chances.
