Charleston Premises Liability Attorney
When you sustain injuries on another’s property, it is paramount to determine the responsible party. Injuries suffered in an accident may be severe, and can potentially last a lifetime, so if it is another’s negligence that led to your injuries, it is important that you obtain compensation for your losses. Holding the negligent person or entity responsible for their action (or inaction) can go a long way toward improving your financial losses from the accident, as well as allow you to receive some sort of closure following your injuries.
Proving Your Premises Liability Claim
Premises liability cases may involve slipping and falling due to a spill on the floor at your local grocery store, tripping in your neighbor’s backyard while at a barbecue, or falling through a broken step that leads up to the entrance of a building. However, in order to bring a successful premises liability claim, you must be able to prove that the property owner did not take the appropriate measures to keep the property in a safe condition for visitors or others who could reasonably be expected to enter onto the property.
Property owners generally have a duty to keep their property in a reasonably safe condition for people who are expected or invited to enter onto the property. If a property owner breaches that duty by acting in a negligent manner, or in a manner that was unreasonable given the circumstances, and that breach directly caused the accident that led to the injuries at issue, then the property owner may be liable, or financially responsible for the resulting injuries. Our attorneys are skilled in handling premises liability cases and know the ins and outs of presenting successful claims to big insurance companies.
Obtaining Compensation in a Premises Liability Case
One of the main concerns of any accident victim is the high cost of medical care and treatment that he or she is likely to incur as a result of his or her injuries. Combined with an inability to work, on a temporary or even permanent basis, an injury victim can be overwhelmed with bills and a lack of income. Fortunately, a premises liability case can be a mechanism for recovering compensation for losses related to an accident.
While financial compensation cannot make an injury victim whole, it can go a long way toward remedying financial concerns that often plague an injury victim and his or her family. If a property owner is found to be liable in a premises liability case, the injury victim may be eligible to recover various damages, including, but not limited to, medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, lost wages, loss of future income, and pain and suffering.
