If you or someone you love slips due to unsafe conditions at a store, in a public building or at any number of other locations, the experienced personal injury lawyers at Blank, Moorstein & Lipshutz, L.L.P., in Rockville, Maryland, can work to recover money for you to pay medical bills, replace lost wages, and compensate you for pain and suffering.
Our firm has protected the rights of individuals who are injured due to someone else's negligence for more than 25 years. Slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall accidents are among the most common personal injury cases that are categorized as "premises liability" lawsuits.
Our personal injury cases are taken on a contingency basis, which means you do not pay for our services unless we obtain a recovery, either through a verdict or a settlement.*
These incidents commonly occur when a property owner, business tenant or property manager (or their employees) fail to repair or maintain floor and pavement surfaces and fail to warn employees, visitors and other "invitees" when dangers are present. Injuries can be severe, including broken bones, ligament and tendon tears, paralysis or traumatic brain injury.
Our Rockville slip-and-fall accidents lawyers work closely with medical professionals who can assess your injuries and testify on your behalf in court if necessary. Slip-and-fall cases may name multiple responsible parties in the lawsuit — for example a property owner, property manager and a negligent subcontractor who was working on the property and played a role in the accident.Meet With Our Gaithersburg Premises Liability Lawyers Who Serve Washington, D.C., And Central Maryland
Every slip-and-fall case is unique. Determining when an owner or occupier of property is legally responsible for causing your injury requires careful investigation. To be legally responsible for the injuries you suffered from slipping or tripping, the owner of the premises or the owner's employee:
- Must have caused the dangerous or defective condition and/or
- Must have known about the existence of the dangerous or defective condition, but did nothing about it (notice)
- Should have known about the dangerous or defective condition because a "reasonable" person taking care of the property would have discovered and removed or repaired the condition.
