What Is Premises Liability Law?

South Carolina premises liability law describes the legal duties that businesses, individuals, and other entities have to people who visit the property (or premises) they own. Basically, those who own or manage property must ensure their premises are reasonably safe, or they must warn visitors of any dangers.

Our South Carolina personal injury attorneys handle a wide range of premises liability claims. However, some of the most common types of cases we take include:

When you are visiting someone else’s property, whether it’s a public or private place, you have a right to expect reasonably safe conditions. So when a property owner or manager is negligent and you are hurt as a result, you have a right to demand compensation for your injuries. In fact, this is true whether you were injured at a place of business, on public property such as a sidewalk, or at someone’s home.

How Can Our S.C. Premises Liability Lawyers Help You?

Any time you are injured on someone else’s property due to negligence, you will be dealing with that property owner’s or manager’s insurance company. Our skilled South Carolina premises liability attorneys understand how these insurance companies operate, and we know the legal strategies they will use to try to avoid paying you the compensation you deserve.

Depending on the circumstances surrounding your accident, we may demand payment for:

Medical expenses, both for the bills you’re facing now and treatments you may need in the future

Lost income, including reduced earning capacity

Personal property damage, such as if your vehicle was stolen during an attack

Your physical and emotional pain and suffering

As soon as our attorneys take your case, we will launch an investigation into the cause of your accident and determine who should be held liable for the harm you have suffered. We will negotiate aggressively with the responsible parties in hopes of reaching a full and fair settlement. However, we won’t back down from a fight in court if that’s what is necessary to pursue justice in your case.
