Slip and fall accidents can happen nearly anywhere and when they do, they can be very serious and lead to lifelong impacts. There are a number of different ways that an individual can become injured in a slip and fall accident. Property owners in Maryland and Washington D.C. have the legal responsibility to make sure their premise is kept safe from any hazards that may result in the injury of another individual. If a property owner is negligent in maintaining a property that is free and clear of any hazards, they may be held responsible. If the victim of the accident does decide to bring a personal injury lawsuit against the property owner, he or she will have to prove that the property owner knew or should have reasonably known about the dangerous conditions and failed to remedy the problem.
As previously stated, slip and fall accidents can happen just about anywhere. Some examples of premises that are prone to slip and fall accidents include sidewalks, hotels, supermarkets, retail stores, accidents caused by snow or ice, parking lots, and elevator or escalators.
