Premises Liability Law Firm | Virginia | Maryland
Whenever you enter a business or walk through private property, you must presume that the property’s owners have kept the premises reasonably safe and free from traps like broken stairs and wet floors. That is because you may not notice potential danger until you have already slipped and fallen and hurt yourself.
Businesses and homeowners who fail to respect your safety may be held responsible for the bills you have run up for your injuries.

Premises Liability Law In Maryland And Virginia
Commonly known as slip-and-fall accidents, premises liability cases involve someone getting hurt on someone else’s property. Even something as minor as a burned out light bulb, a tear in the carpet or a crack in the sidewalk can lead to a serious accident and terrible injury.
To prove that a property owner is legally responsible for your injuries, we must prove one of the following:
- The owner/possessor of the property created the condition.
- The owner/possessor knew about the condition.
- The owner/possessor reasonably should have known about the condition.
Once the owner finds out about a dangerous condition or should have known about it, he or she has a legal duty to fix the problem promptly or at least warn visitors about the danger. If the owner fails to do either and the condition causes a serious fall, he or she could be liable for all of the victim’s damages, such as medical bills and pain and suffering.
