Laurel Slip & Fall Accident Attorneys

We Are Prepared to Go Head-to-Head With Insurance Companies

In the event of a slip and fall accident that causes serious injury, it is common for premises owners, managers and/or insurers of premises owners to claim that the person who fell was careless and therefore partially or fully responsible for his or her own injury. Lawyers for the other side may get even more aggressive and investigate the background of the person who fell, seeking for evidence to show that the fall injury was most likely caused by a pre-existing medical condition.

Before your opponents get too far along in their efforts to blame you for your slip-and-fall accident, it is important to have your own attorney on your side, ready to advocate on your behalf.

At McGowan & Cecil, LLC, our Laurel slip-and-fall accident lawyers are experienced and have a proven record of favorable results. Call now at (301) 761-2007 to schedule a free consultation.

Common Injuries Sustained in Slip & Fall Accidents

If you or a family member has been through a slip-and-fall accident, you may have medical bills to pay after suffering an injury such as:

  • A head injury
  • A broken leg or ankle
  • Injured tailbone
  • Broken arm

Sometimes, what seems like a minor injury at first can become more debilitating than you first expect. A broken bone often triggers reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD), a condition that causes excruciating pain. It is very difficult to treat. A prompt investigation into the causes of the slip-and-fall accident can help prepare you to file a lawsuit if that becomes necessary.

Statutes of Limitations in Maryland

Each state has a different statute of limitations, or period of time in which you much file an injury claim. In Maryland, injury claims must be filed within three years of the date of the injury in order to be legally considered. If you miss that deadline, you will lose the right to file an injury claim. In slip and fall cases specifically, it's important to file your claim as quickly as possible so the evidence isn't lost.
