Residential and commercial property owners must keep their properties in a condition that is safe for use. If you or someone you love suffered an injury in a slip and fall accident, dog bite, or because of inadequate or negligent security on someone else’s property, our premises liability attorney in Cecil County, MD, can help you seek financial compensation.
The premises liability team at the Law Offices of Adam M. Smallow will work with you to identify the at-fault property owner. We will collect evidence to support your case, including proof of your injuries and liability. We assign a financial value to your injuries and negotiate with the at-fault party and their insurance provider for your award. The recoverable damages we request for you include medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, among others.
Premises Liability Practice Areas
Premises liability cases are complex, partly because an injury can occur on another person’s residential or commercial property in so many ways. When we represent you, we start by listening to the details of your case and gleaning details that help explain the property’s condition at the time of your injury. We fight for clients who were hurt in the following ways:
- Negligent security
- Work-related accidents
- Swimming pool accidents
- Slip, trip, and fall accidents
- Dog bites and animal attacks
Our team assigns liability to the at-fault property owner. We also make sure your case’s details are clear to ensure that Maryland’s contributory negligence law does not impede your potential monetary recovery. This is an important part of hiring a premises liability attorney. In our state, having even a single percentage of liability placed on you could prevent you from receiving compensation.
Evidence Against the At-Fault Property Owner
Most civil lawsuits settle out of court when the evidence points to the at-fault party’s negligence. That is why we work so hard to investigate your accident and collect supporting evidence. The evidence we gather for you could include:
- Photos that depict the property’s condition, especially the area where your injuries occurred
- Statements from anyone who saw the accident or the condition of the property before your accident occurred
- Medical records documenting the cause and extent of your injuries
- Official accident reports from law enforcement, such as the police
- Available residential and commercial surveillance video
Our team obtains and organizes case evidence for you so that you can focus on getting well. We also present your evidence to the at-fault party and their insurer, along with a demand letter. If we cannot reach a favorable settlement, we can pursue your financial recovery at trial.

Damages You Could Recover After a Premises Liability Injury
The negligent party in your accident is liable for your financial damages after we prove they owed you a duty of care they did not provide, causing your injuries and financial damages. Your compensation request could include:
- Current and future medical bills
- Current and future lost wages
- Current and future pain and suffering
- Loss of future earning capacity
- Mental and emotional trauma
In a premises liability case, you are entitled to economic and non-economic damages. While economic damages typically have a provable cost, non-economic damages can be harder to calculate. Our team helps you create a detailed list of your injuries and the expenses and losses that stem from your injuries.

Premises Liability’s Statute of Limitations in Maryland
In Maryland, you have a limited time to hold the at-fault party accountable for the financial aftermath of your injuries. Md. Cts. & Jud. Proc. Code § 5-101 generally entitles you to file your lawsuit up to three years after the injury date. We use available accident reports and medical records to prove the date of the accident. We also use them to make sure we comply with the statutory filing deadline.
If someone you love was fatally injured in an accident, you generally have three years to comply with the wrongful death statute of limitations, according to Md. Cts. & Jud. Proc. Code § 3-904. The statutory clock starts on the date of your loved one’s demise, even if it was not the same date as the accident. We use your loved one’s death certificate to prove the date and the cause of their death.
