A woman in another state recently claimed that she suffered injuries after slipping and falling at a Subway restaurant. She asserted that the fast food restaurant’s negligence led to her injuries and has therefore filed a lawsuit against the eatery. Anyone in Maryland who suffers injuries in a slip-and-fallaccident resulting from a property owner’s carelessness has the right to take legal action.
The recent out-of-state incident took place in July 2017. According to the woman’s lawsuit, the woman was ordering food at the Subway restaurant. All of a sudden, she slipped and fell on the floor.
The woman asserted that the slip-and-fall accident caused her body to strike the ground. She is seeking reasonable damages as part of her lawsuit. The woman is also pursuing attorney fees and court costs along with other appropriate relief.
Unfortunately, property owners do not always maintain their properties in a manner that is safe for patrons to use. Their negligence can easily cause their customers to suffer serious injuries in slip-and-fall accidents, for instance, which may lead to hefty medical bills along with the loss of income due to not being able to go to work. Injured parties in such a situation in Maryland may file premises liability claims, seeking the reimbursement of monetary damages. A successfully fought case, based upon a showing of negligence, may lead to a monetary award that helps with addressing medical bills, lost wages and other losses resulting from the dangerous property conditions. The monetary award cannot undo the events resulting in the victim’s injuries, but it may help the victim to more easily move forward from the incident.
