How Do Faulty Handrails Cause Serious Injuries?

Published on Jun 10, 2022 at 5:03 pm in Slip and Fall.

When you enter a business or someone’s home, the last thing you expect is to grab for a handrail and have it break loose or injure you. A broken or faulty handrail can lead to a serious slip and fall injury very quickly, especially in instances where the handrail may look secure but isn’t. Whether the handrail is located in a stairwell, a balcony, an entryway, or a ramp, visitors depend on these handrails to guide them safely and provide balance.

When Do Businesses Need to Clear Ice and Snow

If you own a business, you’d better own a shovel. When it snows, ices, or freezes outside, walking surfaces can become treacherous to customers entering a business property on foot. Business owners have a legal duty to keep their premises safe for visitors. If a customer slips and falls on uncleared ice on a business property, there can be serious legal consequences to the property owner who didn’t properly maintain the premises.

Depending on where in Maryland the business is located, there will be varying laws that dictate when the business needs to clear ice and snow. In some places, a commercial property owner has as little as three hours to remove snow from the property after a snowfall.
