What Elements Must Be Proven in a Premises Liability Case?

Premises liability cases can be difficult to prove; however, it can be done as long as you can prove that your case involves four crucial elements.

In Maryland, a plaintiff in a premises liability case must prove:

  • That there was an unsafe condition on the property that caused foreseeable harm;
  • That the defendant had notice of this unsafe condition, either actual or constructive;
  • That the defendant failed to use reasonable care to address the dangerous or hazardous condition; and
  • That the plaintiff suffered harm as a result.

To prove these claims, we will look at all of the available evidence, such as witness testimony and security footage, and consult with any relevant experts. Though the legal system is complicated and intimidating, our attorneys are ready to use every resource at our disposal to fight on your behalf.

What Are Common Types of Premises Liability Accidents?

Premises liability accidents come in all shapes and sizes. The crucial factor is that your injury was caused by an unsafe condition that a property owner or manager was aware of and did not address, which leaves room for various accidents.

Some of the more common cases we see are:

  • Slip and Fall Accidents: Slip and fall accidents are the most common type of premises liability accident. These accidents typically occur when a person slips or trips on a dangerous condition on someone else's property, such as a wet floor or a loose step. Slip and fall accidents can cause serious injuries, including broken bones, head injuries, and spinal cord injuries. In some cases, slip and fall accidents can even be fatal.
  • Dog Bite Accidents: Dog bites can cause puncture wounds, lacerations, and infections.
  • Swimming Pool Accidents: Swimming pool accidents can lead to drowning, head injuries, and spinal cord injuries.
  • Stairway Accidents: Stairway accidents are a type of premises liability case that typically occurs when a person is injured in a stairway that is not maintained correctly. These accidents can lead to broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and more.
