Columbia Premises Liability Lawyer

A serious injury can happen anywhere at any time. When an injury occurs at another individual’s home or business property, you may have a premises liability claim. If the owners or managers of the property negligently created the dangerous condition, failed to fix the condition, or failed to warn about the condition, you may be able to recover compensation for your injuries. In order to do so, though, it is important to work with a skilled Columbia premises liability attorney.

Marc Brown is an experienced attorney that serves the entire states of South Carolina and Georgia. You can rely on Marc to build your case and help you recover the compensation that you deserve. If you’ve suffered an injury on another’s property, schedule your free consultation to discuss your case today.

What is a Premises Liability Claim?

A premises liability claim is a type of civil action that is filed against a property owner when the negligence of that property owner leads to the injury of another. In a premises liability lawsuit, an injured party can seek compensation for the full value of losses they have suffered, including medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering damages, and more. Premises liability lawsuits often involve:

  • Poor maintenance
  • Uneven or cracked sidewalks
  • Code violations
  • Slippery surfaces
  • Poor lighting
  • Missing signs
  • Inadequate security
  • Failure to restrain or warn of an animal

Common Premises Liability Accidents

Attorney Marc Brown is experienced in helping clients involved in various premises liability claim types to recover compensation after an accident. Some of the most common types of accidents we see include:

  • Slips, trips, and falls
  • Accidents in grocery stores and other businesses
  • Accidents in parking lots
  • Drowning or near-drowning accidents
  • Injuries that occur on stairs, steps, or porches
  • Dog bites
  • Accidents on playgrounds
  • Trampoline park accidents, which have been increasing [lately.]
  • Criminal actions, including shootings, assault, rape, and sexual assault (victims of crime can file a lawsuit against the owners and managers of the property where the crime occurred)
  • Amusement park accidents
  • Faulty elevators and escalators
  • Accidents on or around construction sites

If you have been involved in an incident that occurred on another’s property, you may have a case. Call our Columbia premises liability lawyer today to find out more.

Duties Of A Property Owner

When an injury is the result of a property owner’s failure to exercise the required duty of care owed to a person who is on the property lawfully, the property owner can be held liable for the harm. The duties of a property owner include:

  • Maintaining a property in a reasonably safe condition
  • Remedying any known hazards on the property within a reasonable amount of time
  • Providing adequate security
  • Providing warning to those who enter the property of any known hazards that cannot be immediately remedied

If a property owner fails to make a hazard known or fails to correct a known hazard in a reasonable amount of time and an injury results, the property owner can be held liable.

How A Lawyer Can Help

You deserve to feel safe when you enter another’s property, either public or private. If a hazard on a property has led to your harm, you should be compensated for the full extent of your injuries. But filing a claim can be a complex and drawn-out process, and the insurance companies won’t make it easy. It is often in your best interest to work with an experienced lawyer.

A knowledgeable attorney like Marc Brown can help to bring a successful claim by performing an in-depth investigation, collecting the right evidence, and, if necessary, hiring top experts to strengthen your case. This leads to better results during settlement negotiation and at trial.
