Understanding Legal Issues Surrounding Slip & Fall Accidents
The term “slip and fall” encompasses injuries that occur when one slips, trips, stumbles, or otherwise falls while on the property or premises of another party. Slip and fall accidents can happen at both public and private locations. The owner of the property—or another responsible party, such as a lessee—can be held liable for the resulting injuries and damages.
Some of the most common locations where slip and fall accidents occur include:
- Grocery stores
- Retail locations
- Private residents
- Motels and hotels
- Fitness centers
In South Carolina, a business owner is not strictly responsible for a customer or visitor’s safety. However, if the owner knows about a hazard or creates an unsafe condition on their property, they may be liable for any resulting injuries. To recover compensation in this type of case, we need to show the following:
- The liable party is responsible for the upkeep of the property.
- They knew about or should have known about the hazard.
- Your injuries occurred because of the unsafe condition.
- You suffered recoverable damages.
Who is Liable for My South Carolina Slip and Fall Injury?
Slip and fall cases involve premises liability, personal injury, and insurance law. In some cases, they also involve building and safety codes, rental agreements, and more. As a part of handling your claim, we will identify the liable party or parties and build a case to show they are responsible.
Some parties that are commonly responsible in these cases include:
- The property owner
- A lessee who maintains the property
- A company tasked with proper maintenance of the property
- Another occupier of the property
We have the resources and experience to investigate your fall and determine who is legally responsible for the property and its safety. This will allow us to build a strong case for compensation against them.
Examples of Dangerous Conditions that Can Lead to Slip & fall Accidents
