When property owners don’t maintain their property with an eye to safety, accidents can happen, and often do. We’ve seen numerous families suddenly find a member of their family facing severe injuries because of this kind of negligence, and we’ve helped them seek justice in court. Whether an injury is caused by an uneven sidewalk, a vicious dog, or another dangerous property condition, we can help you hold liable those who are responsible for your injuries and get you and your family on the road to financial recovery.
Dangerous Premises Injuries & Owner Negligence
Under South Carolina law, you have the legal right not only to seek economic damages for the cost of lost wages and high medical bills associated with a serious injury, but also non-economic damages related to pain, suffering, and stress.
You may be wondering if you can hold a property owner liable for the injuries you sustained on their watch. Ask yourself: were you injured because the property owner failed to address some dangerous condition in a reasonable amount of time? Perhaps they neglected to replace a sidewalk that had been cracked by nearby tree roots, causing you to trip and fall, injuring yourself grievously. Alternately, was there a dangerous condition on the property that the property owner should have known about, given the time frames involved? For example, it is reasonable to assume that a convenience store owner should have become aware of a spill in a store aisle within a few minutes of its appearance and cleaned it up to prevent slip and fall accidents. If you can answer yes to either one of these questions, you have the makings of a successful premises liability case. We know how to make the law work for you when it comes to a property-related injury caused by owner negligence.
Protecting You & Your Rights
You can expect that the defendant and their attorney will attempt to shift responsibility for your injury to you rather than the defendant. Be prepared. We’ve heard it all: the plaintiff was intoxicated, or sleepwalking, or wearing frictionless footwear. Unfortunately, it’s the job of the defendant’s lawyer to blame the victim for their injuries and attempt to minimize their client’s liability for an accident. In doing so they can severely reduce the compensation you are awarded following a trial, or even keep you from getting any compensation for your ordeal at all. We can help you prepare for your trial and make sure a jury stays focused on the relevant facts of the case, keeping the defendant’s responsibility for your injury foremost in their minds.
