Department store accidents are fairly uncommon, however, they are exactly rare either. If you are someone who was recently injured in a department store, you understand this all too well, and you are most likely now seeking financial compensation to help you heal. Please continue reading and speak with our experienced Maryland personal injury attorneys to learn more about department store accidents and how we can help if you’ve been injured in one. Here are some of the questions you may have:

How do most department store accidents occur?

Most department store accidents are a result of property owner negligence, however, there are times where department store staff, or even defective machinery in the store, such as poorly produced/designed elevators or escalators cause injuries. There are various potential causes of department store accidents, and if you have been injured due to no fault of your own, there is a very good chance that you are entitled to financial compensation.

Who will I sue for a department store injury in Maryland?

If you are someone who has been injured in a department store accident, you will have to hire an experienced Maryland personal injury attorney who can assess your situation and determine the liable party. In many cases, if we believe that you were injured due to a department store’s staff failing to take care of certain safety hazards, such as spills left unattended in aisles, there is a very good chance that we will file a premises liability claim. That being said, if you were injured because of a defective product or defective machinery in the department store, we will file a product liability claim. The bottom line is that department stores provide customers with a wide range of products, allowing for various potential injuries to take place, and you need an attorney who can accurately determine the liable party.

What is the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Maryland?

The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Maryland is, generally, three years, which means that in most cases, you will have three years from the date of your accident to sue the party responsible for your injuries. Our firm has helped countless individuals through the claims process, and we know we have what it takes to do the same for you. All you have to do is pick up the phone and give us a call.
