Premises Liability Injury Lawyer
For properties in South Carolina including commercial, industrial, nonprofit or private, owners have the duty to protect visitors and guests by maintaining a safe premises. While accidents can occur for a number of reasons, when someone is hurt or injured because a property owner has failed to exercise proper precautions to ensure their safety, this is when premises liability law comes into play.
As an example, suppose an individual is walking through a mall or medical facility when they slip and fall on a wet floor. If there was no sign in place, warning the person that the floor was wet, this could become an issue of liability. In another case, imagine that a person is attacked in an unsecured parking lot. Could inadequate lighting be to blame?

As with any personal injury claim, the nature of premises liability law is that negligence must be proven in order to recoup costs and other damages relating to one’s injury or death. The Taylor Anderson Law Firm serves Charleston, West Ashley and James Island with strong legal insight into these claims.
Even so, premises liability is complex, with different standards of care owed to visitors. Consider the case of a person walking into a supermarket. If there is an uneven curb, the person must be adequately warned of the potential hazard, so that they do not trip or fall. Yet, there are other instances in which property owners are not legally responsible for checking for hazards. Additionally, there are different considerations for trespassers and children. For these reasons, it is important to consult a premises liability injury attorney to investigate the details of your claim.
