Columbia Slip and Fall Lawyer | Here to Handle Your Premises Liability Claim
Property owners owe it to pedestrians to keep their properties safe and hazard-free. Unfortunately, property owners don’t always take the precautions needed to avoid serious accidents, and when people are hurt as a result, they are often entitled to financial compensation. Our firm has decades of experience representing accident victims in South Carolina, and a Columbia personal injury lawyer from our firm is here to put that experience to work for you.
Common Property-Related Accident Causes
Slip or trip and falls, as well as other accidents that occur on property, can be caused by a wide array of factors. Just some of the most common causes of property-related accidents we see are as follows:
- Slippery surfaces
- Dangerous stairway conditions
- Inadequate security
- Uneven pavement or flooring
- Insufficient lighting
- Debris or other potential safety hazards left lying about
Proving a Premises Liability Claim in South Carolina
To win any personal injury claim, you will have to prove you were injured as a result of someone else’s negligence. In a premises liability claim, you must demonstrate the following:
- The property owner either knew or should have known that a safety hazard on their premises existed.
- The property owner neglected to take the necessary actions to remedy the issue timely.
- You were injured and incurred significant damages as a result of the property owner’s negligence.
Our firm will work to prove your premises liability claim by using various types of evidence, such as pictures of the dangerous property condition, surveillance footage of your accident, witness testimony, medical documentation, and more.
Once we satisfy the burden of proof in your personal injury claim, you should receive compensation for two types of damages to help you recover from your injuries: economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages deal with the cost of damaged property, lost wages, and medical treatments associated with an accident. Non-economic damages are for things such as disfigurement, pain and suffering, and the loss of enjoyment of life.
