What Is Premises Liability?

Property owners have a responsibility to maintain safe premises for others who are on their property. When they fail to keep their property safe, they can be held accountable for injuries that result.

At Portner & Shure, we have experience pursuing premises liability claims for serious injuries in Maryland, Virginia, or Washington, D.C.

If you or a loved one has been seriously injured as a result unsafe premises or other property owner negligence, contact us today for a free initial consultation with our premises liability attorneys.

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.

To discuss your potential serious injury claim with a premises lawyer, contact us today. We offer free initial consultations and, if we take your case, will handle it on a contingency basis. That means you will not owe a fee unless we collect compensation for you.
