Many people rent apartments throughout the state of Maryland. Fortunately, there are several beautiful apartments with responsible landlords across Maryland. Unfortunately, not all landlords are responsible, and if you were injured in an apartment accident, you are most likely now looking to sue your landlord. Please read on and reach out to our experienced Maryland personal injury attorneys to learn more about how we can help you.
How do apartment accidents happen?
Apartment injuries are not as uncommon as we’d like to imagine. Some of the most frequent causes of apartment accidents can include loose or worn floorboards or flooring, dangerous staircases (i.e. broken railings), inadequate lighting in apartment hallways or parking lots, insufficient security allowing crimes to happen and go virtually unnoticed, unclean apartment pools, mold or asbestos present, loose balconies, and more.
How do I sue a negligent landlord?
The most important thing you can do is retain the services of an experienced attorney who knows the ins and outs of the personal injury claims process. Our firm will work to obtain various types of evidence so we can effectively prove that you were injured as a direct result of your landlord’s negligence. We understand that there is nothing worse than sustaining a severe injury at the hands of another party, which is why we are here to guide you through the legal process, every step of the way.
To prove your claim, our firm will work to obtain security camera footage of the accident, pictures of the unsafe apartment conditions that caused your accident, police reports of the incident, medical documents detailing the extent and cause of your injuries, any witness statements of the accident, and more.
How long do I have to take legal action against a landlord in Maryland?
The phrase statute of limitations refers to the amount of time an individual has to pursue legal action against another party. If you are someone who has been injured in an apartment accident, you are granted three years from the date of your accident to sue a negligent landlord or property owner. Do not let this timeframe slip by. It is always better to act sooner, rather than later. The sooner you notify our firm, the sooner you may recover financial compensation to help you get back on your feet again.
