Common Accidents & Personal Injuries
The most typical accidents we see that involve premises liability in Frederick, MD include:
- Slip & Fall Injuries
- Dog Bite Injuries
- Pedestrian Accidents
- Bicycle Accidents
- Vehicle Accidents
Premises liability applies, however, only when the following is true: the defendant in your case legally owns the premises, you sustained your personal injury while licensed or invited by the owner to be on the property, and negligence on the property owner’s behalf can be proven.
Before any compensation is received by any party for personal injury sustained on owned property, liability must be determined and proven. Slip-and-fall accidents and dog bite injuries are the most common premises liability cases we see since it is generally the property owner’s responsibility to keep walkways clear, keep their homes safe for guests and invitees, and keep their pets from harming others.
When Premises Liability Doesn’t Apply
If you cannot prove that the property owner was negligent and that it was their negligence that was the clear cause of your personal injury, it’s quite impossible to cite premises liability and to get compensation from the owner. If your personal injury occurred 1) due to your own negligence or 2) due to the property owner’s negligence but you were not invited or licensed to be on their property at the time of your injury, premises liability will not apply.
