Premises Liability Lawyers in Baltimore
Over $700 million Recovered for Personal Injury Victims
If you were hurt on someone else's property, you may be able to recover damages under an area of the law known as premises liability. Premises liability law seeks to hold landowners responsible for accidents or crimes that occur on their property as the result of negligence, or carelessness.
A commonly used example of premises liability is if a neighbor fails to shovel his or her sidewalk after a snowstorm and a passerby slips, falls, and hurts themselves. That injured person may choose to sue if the homeowner was aware that the snow had created unsafe conditions, but did not take the appropriate steps to make the area of sidewalk outside his or her home safe for pedestrians.
These accidents—and the harm they cause-can be very serious. They can lead to physical disability, including paraplegia/quadriplegia, brain damage, and even death. Our firm can answer your questions regarding a potential premises liability case. We encourage you to speak with a Baltimore personal injury attorney from our team about your injury.

Property owners can also be held accountable for criminal acts that occur on their property. Victims of crimes such as sexual or physical assault, kidnapping, or assault with a deadly weapon that are due in part to a property owner's negligence—which can include poor lighting, locks, or security—should contact an attorney to learn their legal rights. If the property owner did not employ the necessary steps to prevent violence and keep patrons or pedestrians safe, they may be held responsible for a victim's injuries.
Other conditions that can unintentionally cause injury include:
- Elevator or escalator failure
- Failure to properly maintain property
- Negligent security
- Pet, or other animal, attacks
- Unsecured falling objects
- Wet or slippery floors
