Do you have a case?

An injury can be devastating, no matter how it happens.


    In personal injury cases, liability and negligence determine if you have a valid lawsuit. The person who caused the injury is liable and if we can prove negligence, we can generally increase the amount of money you receive as part of your settlement or jury award.

Greenville Slip-and-Fall Lawyer

Every year, millions of Americans end up in the emergency room because of falls. These injuries can happen instantly, and they can leave a lasting impact through the necessary medical care and rehabilitation. Some fall victims do not ever fully recover from their injuries. When someone else was to blame for your fall, they can be made to pay for your injuries.

You Can Take Legal Action for a Slip-and-Fall Injury

Winning a slip-and-fall may be challenging, but it is possible when you take quick and strong legal action. Personal injury laws mean that a defendant would be responsible when their carelessness and inattention to detail were the cause of your injury. Then, their insurance company (or the defendant themselves) would need to write a check for your injuries.

Where Slip-and-Fall Accidents Happen

Slip-and-fall accidents can happen anywhere and anyplace once you leave your home. Everywhere you go, you put a certain amount of trust in someone who you have never met to take the right level of care to protect you. However, not everyone takes their legal obligations seriously. They may be trying to cut corners, or they could be just plain lazy.

Slip-and-fall accidents can have several causes, including:

  • Tripping over a loose string or frayed carpet
  • Tripping over a piece of broken concrete on a poorly maintained sidewalk
  • Slipping on a wet floor because the defendant did not clean a spill in time
  • Falling over debris that was left in a public passageway
  • Falling because a railing on a staircase is broken

Common Injuries in a Slip-and-Fall Case

While a slip-and-fall sounds routine, the injuries that your fall can cause are anything but routine. Accident victims can suffer the following injuries:

  • Broken bones
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Internal injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries

Falls can cause lasting and permanent injuries. In some cases, the victim may die from their injuries.

Common Places for Slip-and-Fall Accidents

  • Here are some places where slip-and-fall accidents may commonly happen:
    Parking lots outside of businesses
  • Store aisles
  • City sidewalks
  • Sidewalks in front of homes
  • Common areas in apartment buildings

The common theme in each of these cases is that someone owes you a duty of care to act reasonably under the circumstances.

  • Common types of injuries from these accidents
  • Places where most accidents occur
  • Common settlement amounts

Proving Negligence in Your Slip-and-Fall Case

The property owner does not guarantee the absolute safety of everyone who sets foot on their property, even if they invite you onto it. They assume a legal obligation, but the scope of that obligation is to act reasonably. Here are some ways that you would prove that the property owner acted unreasonably:

  • The property owner themselves created the dangerous condition. The length of time the condition existed does not matter. The property owner would be legally responsible for it, no matter what.
  • Someone else created the dangerous condition, but the property owner did not fix it or alert the public within a reasonable amount of time.

In many cases, you are trying to prove what the property owner actually knew or should have known because they obviously did nothing to fix the dangerous condition that caused your injury.

Why You Need a Slip-and-Fall Lawyer

The insurance company does not make it easy for you to get money for your slip-and-fall injuries. In fact, it is just the opposite. They take advantage of the fact that falls are common, and there may not be witnesses to deny claims or underpay your injuries.

To be in a position to receive compensation, you must have solid evidence. Otherwise, the insurance company will deny your claim. An attorney knows how to investigate your fall and obtain the proof that you need, including:

  • Eyewitness testimony, if you are fortunate enough that people saw what happened
  • Security camera footage that either captured your fall or got pictures of what conditions were like at the time you fell
  • Maintenance logs that could show that the defendant either did not inspect the property or did not take action to fix a dangerous condition
  • Pictures of the scene of your fall
  • An accident report that was filled out after your fall
  • Testimony from an accident reconstruction expert

In addition, the insurance company will try to minimize your injuries, even if you prove that someone else was responsible. Falls can cause serious injuries, and a lawyer would fight to ensure you are fully paid for them. Slip-and-fall injuries could lead to damages that start at tens of thousands of dollars. Any trip to the emergency room is costly, not to mention your pain and suffering and any time you have missed from work.

The Statute of Limitations in Your Slip-and-Fall Case

In South Carolina, you have three years from the date you were injured or should have known you were injured to file a lawsuit. You would never want to wait that long because the evidence that would prove your claim would likely be gone by then.

Bolstering Your Slip-and-Fall Case

There are two things that you need to do after your fall to put yourself in a better position to receive financial compensation:

  • See a doctor right after your accident – You need a diagnosis and documentation of your injury. If you wait too long to see a doctor, you may have more difficulty connecting your accident to your injury.
  • Contact an experienced attorney – The evidence you need to prove that someone else was at fault will disappear quickly. You need a lawyer to get to work immediately to gather this evidence. Then, your attorney will work to prove liability, fighting back if the insurance company unreasonably tries to deny your claim.

Frequently Asked Questions

Let’s face it — you have questions.

Can I sue a company in a slip-and-fall case?

Most often, you would sue a company because they are the ones who own the property. Your lawyer would track down the property records and leases to determine the proper defendant and file the claim.

What if I was partially to blame for the slip-and-fall accident?

You can still receive some compensation, so long as you were not more than 50 percent to blame for the accident. Insurance companies will commonly blame the accident victim for their own fall in an attempt to save money.

When will a property owner be deemed to have known about the dangerous condition?

Everything depends on the facts and circumstances of your case. What is certain is that the property owner cannot put their head in the sand and pretend that they did not know of a dangerous condition because they did nothing to fix it.
