Whether you are visiting a hotel, restaurant, shopping area, private business or someone’s home, the property owner has an obligation to ensure your safety.

Helping Injured Clients Recover
I am A.J. Serafini, a Maryland personal injury lawyer with more than 12 years of experience representing clients in the Hagerstown area at my office of Serafini Law. I know the challenges of resolving a personal injury claim while defending your best interests through the process, and I am prepared to provide you with the guidance you deserve to put your worries at ease in your claim.
Common Forms Of Premises Liability Injuries
Some forms of premises liability injuries are more common than others. While some forms of these injuries include causes like negligent security, swimming pool injuries, trampoline accidents, elevator and escalator injuries, and improper maintenance. Over the years I have been representing clients in these kinds of claims, I have encountered two primary forms of injury more than others: dog bites and slip-and-falls.
Slip-and-Fall or Trip-and Fall Accidents
A slip-and-fall can happen for many different reasons, including loose handrails, uneven stairs, cluttered walkways, unkempt sidewalks, ice patches and unattended spills. A fall from a standing position can be enough to cause someone to suffer a traumatic brain injury (TBI), broken bones, paralysis or nerve damage.
When these or other consequences of your premises liability injury happen, they can affect the way you live for years to come. When a lifetime of consequences lies ahead of you, it is only fair that the compensation you receive for your injuries can continue to benefit you throughout the course of your life with these complications.
How A Dog Bite Can Harm You
A dog bite can come with serious consequences, including nerve damage, infection, loss of bodily function and emotional trauma. A dog owner should be accountable for the injuries their dog caused as long as the injuries were not the result of an aggression by the victim toward the dog.
Recovering Fair Compensation After An Accident
My experience in these cases can be the guidance you need to secure the money you need. I look for every method of maximizing the compensation you deserve, including filing a claim against your own insurance company if you were harmed in your own home.
No matter who was responsible for your injuries, I will explore all the options to earn the optimal outcome in your claim, including through litigation and negotiation. As I represent you through your claim, I will go through the efforts to build the strongest case I can by gathering essential documents, filing paperwork, consulting with expert witnesses and identifying the full costs of your injuries.
Insurance companies often look for ways to minimize the compensation they pay injury victims, and it is my responsibility as your legal representative to reject lowball settlement offers while maximizing the compensation you receive for your injuries.
