How do I Protect Myself From Premises Liability Claim in Maryland?

With the holidays around the corner, there are many people who will soon begin to decorate their lawns with festive decorations. These may be for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc. While this is a fun way to celebrate, it is important for property owners to do so carefully. This is because they owe a duty of care to others who come onto their grounds, ensuring their safety from certain hazards. The failure to uphold this duty can result in injuries and premises liability claims. Continue reading below to learn more and contact an experienced Maryland personal injury attorney for help with your case.

How Can I Protect Myself from a Lawsuit?

All lawn items placed on a property in Maryland must be done with caution. This is especially so if they are on any stairs. When people come on and off a property, such as trick-or-treating on Halloween, they may not be able to see where these items are placed. This can cause accidents in the event that they trip and fall over decorations. That is why all property owners should ensure these items are visible to others by putting them in open spaces and having their property adequately lit. 

What do I do if I’m Injured on Someone’s Property? 

When a person becomes injured at the expense of a property owner’s negligence, it is possible for them to pursue legal action. To secure a future claim, it is important to take certain steps. After an accident happens, it is crucial to document everything you can about the incident. This includes taking pictures of the conditions, contacting emergency services, writing down witness contact information, receiving medical care, and more.

This information can be used later on during a lawsuit to help prove the property owner’s neglect. When pursuing legal action, it is important to keep statute of limitations in mind. The statute of limitations is a deadline that injured parties must meet when filing a claim, otherwise they can lose their chance to do so. In the state of Maryland, the statute of limitations is three years from the date of the injury.
