Got Axelrod?

How do you know if you have a valid premises liability claim?

When you visit a store, business or someone's personal place of residence, you likely have the expectation that you will not experience any threats to your personal safety or dangerous conditions that could cause you harm. However, a slip-and-fall accident caused by circumstances beyond your control could leave you with injuries and unexpected medical expenses.

You may feel embarrassed by your accident, and you might even assume that your accident was at least partially your fault, but you would be wise not to let that stop you from exploring your legal options. In many cases, South Carolina victims of slip-and-fall accidents actually have grounds to move forward with a civil claim against liable parties.

How can I prove someone else is to blame?

Part of a successful civil claim is the evidence that proves another party is liable for what happened to you. In most slip-and-fall cases, the property owner or the party responsible for the upkeep of the property could be to blame for the accident. It is important for your claim to have evidence to prove the property owner knew about the dangerous condition or should have known. You may have a case if you can prove the following:

  • The property owner knew about the dangerous condition because he or she created it.
  • The owner knew about the hazard but failed in his or her duty to fix it.
  • The dangerous condition was there long enough for the property owner to find it fix it before it caused harm to visitors, customers or guests. 

You may unsure of what to do next after an accident, but it can be beneficial to start with a complete evaluation of your case. This can help you understand if you have grounds to move forward with a premises liability claim after a slip-and-fall accident. 

Pursuing the full compensation you deserve

If you suffered because of the negligent or reckless actions of another person, you do not have to navigate the complex aftermath alone. After a slip-and-fall accident, you have the right to seek appropriate compensation through a civil claim, and you are also entitled to legal support and guidance as you do so.

After any type of personal injury incident, taking quick and decisive action to protect your interests is an important step. You would be wise not to delay, but you should act immediately to start building your claim against appropriate liable parties.
