Can I file a legal claim for my grocery store injury?

The state of Maryland holds property owners to a high standard. This means that grocery store owners and employees will be held liable for ensuring that their property is safe for those who enter it. As a result, those who own grocery stores or are employees of one must make routine checks for hazards and dangerous conditions that may put customers in danger. In the event that there are dangerous conditions that are not alleviated within a reasonable amount of time, a store owner may be held liable for negligence.
