Understanding Sinkhole Personal Injury Law

A sinkhole is a cavity depression in the earth caused by water erosion that is often found in land possessing limestone bedrocks. In recent years, the presence of sinkholes on South Carolina land created craters across the state that produced enhanced risks of personal injuries to innocent bystanders. According to the United States Geological Survey, even the smallest sinkhole can be more dangerous than it may seem at first glance. Sinkholes can naturally occur when water enters below the surface, and the amount of water becomes so large that it attempts to flow outward. In recent years, because of increased construction and building, sinkholes occur most often when underground pipes or other water dispersing products burst, creating new underground routes for the trapped water to flow.

Sinkholes present a significant risk of injury if someone falls in. In 2013, concerns about sinkholes became more pronounced when a Florida man fell to his death into a 20-foot wide sinkhole that, unbeknownst to him, was located under his home. In addition to presenting a risk of accidents and injury, sinkholes also raise insurance liability claims for the property where the sinkhole exists. A property owner with an insurance policy for their land should be capable of recovering compensation for damages and injuries caused by the presence of a sinkhole.

However, the following issues can affect insurance recovery from sinkholes:

  • Whether the sinkhole is present on private or public property
  • The property owner’s knowledge of the sinkhole’s existence
  • Whether the property owner who knew of the sinkhole’s existence took proper precautions to warn others of its presence
  • If routine inspections of the property were conducted by an insurance coverage provider
  • Whether a property owner acted negligently with regards to the sinkhole and/or the injured party
