South Carolina Premises Liability Attorney
Premises liability typically exists when a property owner knows - or can reasonably expect - that people will come onto his or her property and someone is injured or harmed on the property as a result of that owner’s failure to take necessary action or care in making the premises safe. To put it plainly, if you've suffered an injury while on another's property due to dangerous conditions on that property, you may be entitled to recover a monetary award from the owner or occupier of the property. In that event, an attorney licensed to practice in South Carolina with premises liability experience can advocate for you to ensure your rights are protected.
Call Trey Cook Law if You’ve Been Injured While on Another’s Property
A premises liability cause of action may be the result of an accident that occurs on commercial, residential or public property. Regardless of location, Trey Cook Law is ready to help you recover for the injuries you've sustained due to the negligence of the property owner. If you've been hurt due to dangerous conditions or a lack of concern for your safety by a property owner, you may be entitled to compensation for the medical expenses and other costs associated with your injury.
Premises liability cases are most commonly associated with slip-and-fall accidents. And though that type of accident may not sound like a big deal, it can result in severe injuries. That said, slip-and-fall accidents are not the only situations that can lead to premises liability.
Common Premises Liability Occurences
- Dangerous conditions arising from weather conditions (for example, an icy sidewalk or slippery tiles)
- Unprotected areas (for example, an unmonitored, darkened or distant area of a parking lot where someone may be attacked)
- Accidents at work resulting from inadequate warnings, training, or safety equipment or any unsafe areas of the workplace
- Dangerous conditions likely to cause injury that exist on property that an owner knows or should know is frequently visited by children
