Baltimore Premises Liability Cases
In Baltimore, one of the common cases involves the unfortunate dangers on certain properties. In many cases, there are dangers that pose the threat of harm to visitors. If the property owner does not work to fix the issue, they may be considered liable for any type of injury sustained by the victim. It’s important to understand these types of cases and what can be done.
From a legal standpoint, an attractive nuisance is something that attracts individuals to a specific location. This is also a way to hold property caretakers and owners accountable for any injuries that may be sustained as a result of an oversight.
Here are a few examples of an attractive nuisance:
- Dogs and cats
- Swimming pools
- Swing-sets or jungle gyms
- Big machinery / tractors
A Duty to Protect
All property owners in Maryland have a duty to protect visitors or individuals who may inhabit their property. If a property owner is aware that they may have a potential danger located on their property, they must take all steps necessary to ensure that there are safety measures in place. This means providing warning signs or fixing the issues before they become a problem.
It's best if you educate yourself about the property hazards that are out there and be sure you never enter someone else's property without their permission. If you are a lawful visitor on someone else’s property, you are owed a duty of care that must be respected by the property owner. You shouldn’t have to worry about sustaining a serious injury.
