Slip and fall injuries are incredibly common. Unfortunately, they can result in serious injuries. As you will learn in this video, a land or property owner has the legal obligation to exercise reasonable care to protect all individuals who are invited onto the premises from dangerous conditions.
A property owner is not required to guarantee others’ safety but is legally mandated to take reasonable precautions. In order for a property owner to be liable for a slip and fall accident, it must be shown that it would have been reasonable for him or her to know about and correct the dangerous condition.
If you have been hurt in a slip and fall accident, your first call should always be to a qualified personal injury lawyer. The attorneys at Sussman & Simcox: Attorneys at Law have years of experience on both sides of personal injury law. Call our Gaithersburg office today at (301) 840-0404.
