A Maryland Attorney Helping Victims of Defective Design Accidents
Building architects and developers are responsible for designing and constructing their buildings to avoid injuries due to conditions such as roof and wall collapses, dangerously low ceilings, unlighted stairwells, defective elevators or escalators and blind access for motor vehicles. Dangerous and defective designs are something the general public cannot typically recognize or avoid in an accident.
Hazardous Conditions and Slip-and-Fall Accidents
Property owners also have a responsibility to remove a known hazard in a reasonable amount of time or adequately warn the public of the dangerous condition. These types of injury claims are often referred to as slip-and-fall accidents, but may also occur because of insufficient maintenance by the property owner. Injury claims involving a hazardous or unsafe condition are becoming more difficult to prove because juries are placing more responsibility on people to avoid recognizable hazards such as standing water or ice buildup near an entryway.
