Reducing accidents and premises liability during the holidays

Starting next week, most Maryland residents will enter the holiday party season. It is a time of happiness and contentment for all of us, but an accident could spoil everyone's good time.

If you are planning to attend holiday parties on other people's property, you should be aware of the hidden dangers that could take you out of the celebration. You should also know that in many cases, property owners can be held liable for any personal injuries that may occur on their property.

We hate to be party poopers, but we have seen premises liability accidents increase during the holidays. We hope this post will remind everyone to practice just a little caution while celebrating the season. Here are some holiday party situations that could lead to a slip-and-fall or other kind of accidents:

-- The presence of snow, ice or water on outdoor walkways

-- Uncovered or even empty swimming pools

-- Dangerous property conditions like faulty stairs or frayed carpet

-- Out of control or overly intoxicated party guests

A little common sense can go a long way when attending parties on another person's property. First, remember that you are not at home and may not be aware of potential accident dangers. Be careful where you step, don't drink so much that you become vulnerable or prone to an accident and make sure you have a safe ride home.

Accidents can and will happen. However, you can protect yourself ahead of time by avoiding dangerous situations. Stop by our website to learn more about premises liability and personal injury accidents.
