Columbia Slip & Fall Attorney

Slip and fall accidents are one of the commonest accidents that occur in the U.S. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than one million people suffer a slip, trip, and fall injury, and over 17, 000 people as a result annually. Our Columbia slip & fall attorney understands the laws and guidelines to follow in regards to slip and fall accidents.

Slip and fall accidents are generally used for injuries that occur as a result of slips, trips, falls, or stumbles, especially while on the property or premises of another person. The property or premises may either be public or private.

Be it grocery stores, retail locations, private residents, motels and hotels, restaurants, fitness centers, etc., you may be able to recover compensation from the owner of the property or any other party that can be held responsible for your slip and fall injury.

If you or a loved one suffers an injury from a slip and fall accident in Columbia, one of your immediate actions should be to consult a slip and fall accident lawyer experienced in this kind of case. Consult Marc Brown law firm online here or call to get an insight on the options available to you.

Negligence in slip and fall accidents

The owner of a property is expected to undertake certain precautions to keep their property safe. Owners of commercial premises are held on a higher pedestal on this responsibility.

These responsibilities are generally known as ‘premises liability’. Unfortunately, many property owners neglect to keep their property reasonably safe. This is usually the primary cause of slip and fall accidents.

In South Carolina, a property owner will not be automatically held responsible for the slip and fall accidents that occur within their premises. It has to be established that the owner was aware of the ‘unsafe condition’ that led to your injury. Likewise, proving that the owner negligently created the unsafe condition on a property will also avail you.

You can also establish that even though the ‘unsafe condition’ was put by another person, the owner of the premises failed to fix it within a reasonable time.

Dangerous conditions that can lead to slip and fall accidents

The number of ‘unsafe’ or ‘dangerous’ condition that may be the cause of your slip and fall injury include:

  • Dim or poor lighting,
  • Slippery or wet surfaces,
  • Tattered rugs or frayed carpeting,
  • Defective elevators,
  • Uneven ground or flooring,
  • Lack of required warning signs,
  • Building and safety code violations,
  • Stairways without proper hand-hold, etc.

Compensation in slip and fall cases

You should not bear the brunt of your injuries and expenses alone. The parties responsible for your injuries owe you some form of damages. A slip and fall accident lawyer will make sure the negligent parties compensate you for:

  • Lost wages for the time missed at work;
  • Medical expenses (past, present, and future);
  • Occupation and vocational therapy and training, if recommended;
  • Pain and suffering, and other expenses.

A slip and fall accident may encompass a personal injury, premises liability, and insurance claims at the same time. Your insurer, as well as that of the negligent party, including the owner of the premises, may be required to financially compensate you for injuries sustained.
