Premises Liability Attorneys
Property Accident Victims Serving Gaithersburg & Rockville
Premises liability is a legal term. What it means to injured victims, in English, is that property owners have a duty to maintain reasonably safe conditions on their property or to adequately warn people where dangerous conditions exist. When they don’t and people are injured or killed as a result — victims can recover compensation. But “can” doesn’t mean the same thing as “will” and the reality is — premises liability cases are often far more difficult than they initially seem.
Challenges and the Representation You Need to Overcome Them
At Sussman & Simcox, decades of experience in litigating tough premises liability cases enable us to provide victims in the Baltimore-D.C. corridor and its surrounding areas with the skilled legal representation they need to recover. Our experience includes:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Trip and fall accidents
- Sidewalk, parking lot and street accidents
- Retail accidents
- Dog bites
- Assault claims
- Hotel accidents
- Elevator and escalator accidents
- Building fires caused by negligence
Although the negligence responsible for your accident may seem obvious to you, proving there was negligence requires a showing that the property owner in question created or knew of the danger, that the danger was present long enough that the owner should have known about it and corrected it, or that the nature of that owner’s business made an accident like the one you had reasonably foreseeable.
Because the burden of proof is so high for plaintiffs, insurance companies are generally not hesitant to take premises liability claims to trial. Our attorneys’ insurance defense experience and their trial success as plaintiff’s lawyers combine to make insurers more likely to be reasonable in dealing with us than they might otherwise be.
