Understanding Premises Liability
When an accident occurs on the property of another individual, it is important to know your rights and the duties that the property owner owes you. In South Carolina, guests of a property are legally protected from certain accidents if they occur. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for guests to experience serious injuries when a property owner does not properly maintain their property or alert their guests of hazardous situations. These types of accidents can occur on both private and commercial properties. Victims of premises liability cases may experience various injuries such as broken bones, spinal cord injuries, and burn injuries. In the instance that an individual requires medical treatment after suffering an injury on another individual’s property, the property owner may be liable to compensate the victim for their medical expenses. By hiring a premises liability attorney, you can increase your chances of obtaining the financial compensation you may be needing as you recover from your injuries.
Premises Liability Claims
A negligent property owner can cause injury to their guests through a number of ways. The following accidents are some of the common premises liability claims:
- Slip and Fall Claims
- Burn Injuries
- Dog Bites
- Swimming Pool Injuries
- Stair Collapse
These are just some of the incidents in which hiring a premises liability attorney could help you find you reimbursement for your injuries. If you suffered any of these while on another property, do not hesitate to seek legal justice.
