Property Owners, Negligence and Compensation
Accidents involving property owner negligence are governed by an area of tort law that attorneys refer to as premises liability. Although complicated, this area of the law is essentially based on the idea that property owners should not expose people who have a reason or right to be on a property to unreasonable risk of harm. When property owners neglect their duties and others are harmed as a result, victims have a legal right to seek compensation.
At Rowe Weinstein & Sohn, PLLC, we help people in Maryland, the District of Columbia and northern Virginia to recover full compensation for injuries and other losses that have been caused by property owner negligence. Simply put, we have the legal knowledge, the years of experience and the courtroom skills it takes to prevail in these difficult cases. Most importantly, we know what your rights are and will use every resource we have at our disposal to protect them.
If you or a family member has been seriously harmed by the negligence of a property owner — call or contact us for a free consultation with a personal injury attorney and a realistic assessment of your case.
Protecting Your Interests
Because most property-related accidents are the result of temporary conditions or problems that can easily be fixed, it is in your best interest to contact an attorney as soon as possible. In fact, your only other actions before contacting an attorney should be to notify the property owner or manager of the accident and to get appropriate medical care.
Aside from taking those two actions, don’t make any statements about the accident, don’t agree to anything and don’t assume that the property owner means it when they say: “We’ll take care of you.”
In the area of premises liability law, our law firm handles personal injury and wrongful death claims that involve:
- Tripping accidents or slip and fall accidents occurring on privately owned property and on commercial properties of all types, including retail stores, supermarkets and hotels
- Dog bites or other kinds of animal attacks
