What You Need To Know About Slip And Falls

- Slip-and-fall accidents result in more than 1 million visits to the emergency room each year.
- Falls often result in broken bones or injuries to the brain or spine.
- A large portion of falls occur on ground level.
- Hip fractures resulting from falls contribute significantly to disability or death among those over the age of 65.
Maryland property owners are required to keep their buildings and surrounding premises safe and well-maintained, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. How might you be injured from a fall on someone else's property? Your landlord might have neglected to repair cracks in the sidewalk around your apartment complex or to treat an icy walkway with a de-icing product. At the grocery store, employees may have failed to clean up a spill.
