Experience with Dangerous Premises Claims
An example of our ability to obtain outstanding results for serious injury victims is a case involving a man who was injured at an apartment building in Maryland in 2008. The plaintiff alleged that her fall occurred because the defendant failed to place a railing between the walkway and the drop off to the lower level balcony. The plaintiff suffered significant injuries to her right knee, requiring surgery.
At the trial, we presented evidence that undercut the defendant's argument that the lack of a railing was "grandfathered" in and they were not legally responsible for the injury. After deliberation, the jury awarded our client $366,000 in damages.
Other types of premises liability cases include dog bite cases, negligent security cases and slip-and-fall accidents that result in catastrophic injuries such as broken bones, brain injuries and spinal cord injuries.
