What Is A Slip And Fall Accident?

Do You Have A Slip And Fall Claim Against A Property Owner?

Slip and fall accidents are personal injury claims that apply to accidents where an individual injures themselves on someone else’s property, usually as a result of at least one dangerous condition. Legally, fall accidents happen on both private and public property.

Homeowners and property owners are responsible for the safety of their environment, so they may be held liable for the injured party. At Dubo Law, you’ll have an experienced personal injury attorney on your side proving negligence, identifying when property owners fail their legal responsibility to keep you safe, and making sure you recover compensation that matches what you deserve.

Hint: You’ll Want Top Maryland Fall Lawyers On Your Side

Proving you have a Maryland slip and fall case in court is not easy. Your attorney must prove multiple very specific things:

  1. that the property owner or homeowner did not keep their environment reasonably safe,
  2. That you had a lawful reason to be there,
  3. That the property owner knew or should have known about the defective condition that caused the fall, and
  4. That the condition was not open and obvious such that you should have seen it on your own.

In fall lawsuits, it’s critical to know how the Maryland law works to receive your proper compensation and maximum recovery you deserve because proving the property owner liable may be extremely tricky. We’ll make it easier for you.

Elements of Slip & Fall Claims in Maryland

In case you fall on another’s property, certain factors must be presented in order to file a slip and fall injury claim. You and your Maryland and/or Baltimore slip and fall attorney must prove the property owner was negligent and this caused your fall accident. The following elements must be presented in a claim:

  1. Hazard on the property – property owners have an obligation to keep their premises safe to legal guests. As the victim, you must prove that a hazardous condition existed on the property and that the dangerous condition created a risk of harming the property’s legal guests. This includes a slippery surface, potholes in a parking lot, cracked sidewalks, inadequate lighting, and more.
  2. The property owner was aware – In addition to proving that the hazardous condition existed, you also must prove that the property owner knew or should have known about the condition and had a reasonable opportunity to remedy it. Only then can they be held accountable legally.
  3. The victim was allowed on the property – you, as the victim, must have been legally on the property at the time of the accident. That means being explicitly invited onto the property for the owner’s benefit (for example, a customer or tenant), or is someone visiting the property owner for his or her own purposes (for example, a family member or friend). The property owner is not liable for a trespasser’s safety. However, it is not allowed to harm a trespasser purposefully.
  4. A hazard directly caused the injury – the next step is to determine whether the injury resulted in the hazard present on the property. The link between slip and fall accidents and the property owner’s negligence must be established. It is done by your doctor, who will document his or her findings in your medical records. They will be used as a piece of evidence in court.
  5. The victim suffered damages due to the property owner’s negligence – you need to suffer damages in order for your claim to be valid. This includes lost wages due to injury, brain injuries, loss of ability to earn income, rehabilitation, medical assistive equipment, past and future medical treatments, and prescription medication.

What to Expect During a Maryland Slip and Fall Injury Case?

Personal injury cases are generally very complex and take a long time to resolve. Some crucial steps need to be followed, so hiring a skilled slip and fall lawyer in Maryland is important.

Step #1: Meet and talk to your attorney

You will go over together what actually happens, and the attorney will gather all the relevant information about the fall accident.

Step #2: File a lawsuit

The first document your lawyer needs to file is a complaint that outlines the case against the defendant. After this initial document, many others need to be filed, such as answers, crossclaims, counterclaims, etc.

Step #3: Discovery phase

This phase includes all the fine details about the fall accident and is designed to ensure that all the key information is uncovered. All the relevant information from you, witnesses, the defendant, and everything related to the event should come out in this phase.

Step #4: Pre-trial resolutions

The pre-trial resolution resolves any questions involving your lawsuit and can sometimes resolve the litigation completely if the defendant and their insurance company are willing to take reasonable steps to settle the case.

Step #5: Trial

If there is no settlement, the case will go to trial. The judge or jury will examine each party’s evidence, and both sides will have an opportunity to present evidence and make arguments supporting their respective positions. At the conclusion of the trial, it will be determined if the defendant is held responsible for the slip and fall accidents.

Step #6: Determine liability

If you are successful at trial, then you will be awarded a judgment which will, in whole or in part, be satisfied by the insurance company.

Possible Compensation From Slip an Fall Personal Injury Claims

In Maryland or Baltimore slip and fall injuries losses often include financial, physical, and emotional losses. You should seek a monetary award that will fully compensate your total past and future losses, so you are not forced to pay anything out-of-your-pocket. Some of the losses you could pursue are:

  • Lost wages;
  • Lost earning capacity;
  • Pain and suffering;
  • Medical expenses;
  • and many more.

While the costs of medical bills are easy to calculate, some other losses are not so easy to determine – especially the emotional and psychological parts of the injury. At Dubo Law, we hire experts that help in determining the fair amount of compensation.
