What Should I do if my Child Gets Injured This Halloween?

What Should I do if my Child Gets Injured This Halloween?

While Halloween is generally fun for all, if your child is injured, it can become a nightmare. You must take action to help cover the cost of your child’s recovery and any damages you’ve incurred. Please read on to learn more about what we can do for you and your child:

What are property owners responsible for?

Homeowners are in charge of their property’s condition. Year-round, property owners must make repairs when necessary, and in a reasonable period of time. If they fail to do so and someone is injured as a result, they may have a premises liability lawsuit on their hands.

How do I know if I can sue a homeowner for my child’s injuries?

To win a premises liability lawsuit, you will have to prove that your child was injured due to a homeowner’s negligence. If you can prove that if the homeowner in question took a simple safety measure, the accident wouldn’t have happened, you will most likely recover the compensation you need.

Can an attorney help me prove my claim?

An attorney is trained to uncover, assemble, and present evidence both effectively and cohesively. If you are someone who was injured, it is of paramount importance that you hire an attorney. Our skilled legal firm will help you recover security camera footage of the accident, pictures of the safety hazard that caused the accident, police reports of the incident, medical documents, eyewitness testimony, and more to help win your claim.

Once you file your personal injury claim, you must be extremely careful about what you post on your social media accounts. Insurance companies may be monitoring your accounts to see if you post anything that even remotely contradicts or disproves your claim. If you do, they may use it against you. Do not let this happen. Refrain from posting until the process is complete, if possible.

What does “statute of limitations” mean?

The statute of limitations is the legally-acceptable period of time you will have from the date of an accident to file a personal injury lawsuit against a negligent party. Our attorneys know how to get the claims process started as soon as possible. The statute of limitations in Maryland is three years, so if you wait past that period of time to file, you will most likely be denied your right to sue. Do not let this happen. We are ready to fight for your rights.
