Under South Carolina law, all property owners and managers have an obligation to ensure that their property is safe and free from hazards that can cause injury.
If a hazard occurs, such as a spilled liquid on a grocery store floor, the manager must address the issue in a timely manner, otherwise, he or she could be held liable for any injuries that result.
Premises liability claims can result from accidents on any type of property. Our Bluffton premises liability attorneys have experience handling a wide variety of claims, including:
Slip and fall accidents – If you trip or slip and fall because of a slippery surface, dangerous debris on the ground, uneven steps, a broken sidewalk or other hazard that that is in your path, the property owner may be held liable for the injuries. Our Bluffton slip and fall accident lawyers can help you seek fair compensation.
Negligent security – Under premises liability law, property owners have a duty to protect visitors. If the property is poorly lit or does not have adequate security and a crime such as assault, kidnapping or robbery occurs, the property owner can be held liable. This includes incidents that occur at concerts, in hotels, in parking garages and in other public spaces. Our attorneys are experienced in building cases that demonstrate that a property owner could have done more to protect visitors.
Falling objects or merchandise – Property owners can be held liable for any type of injury that happens on their property because of their negligence. This can include objects that fall on a victim, such as shelves in a store that are overstocked or poorly packed or construction sites that do not have protections from falling objects.
Faulty escalators and elevators – A person’s property includes all of the machines and products within it. If an elevator or escalator is poorly designed, incorrectly installed, poorly maintained or defective, the property owner could be held liable for any injuries that result.
Swimming pool accidents – Owners of swimming pools must warn visitors of hazards that are common near swimming pools, including that the floor becomes slippery when wet and that no one should be running near a pool. If the owner fails to warn of these dangers or provides untrained or inattentive staff, they can be held liable for any injuries that occur on their property.
