Personal Injury Lawyers Representing Charleston & nearby areas of South Carolina
While cartoon characters who slip and fall may prompt much laughter in a watching audience, such accidents are no laughing matter in the real world. Fall-related accidents can be painful, and may even have devastating consequences. When a property owner or the proprietor of a business establishment fails to observe and eliminate slip and trip hazards, then he or she may be held legally liable for the consequences of any accidents that result.
If you have slipped or tripped and fallen on another party’s property, then you may be able to pursue financial compensation for injuries sustained. To determine whether you may have sufficient cause to file a civil lawsuit, contact the skilled and experienced Charleston premises liability lawyers of the Steinberg Law Firm at 843-720-2800 to discuss the specific details of your situation.
COMMON SLIP AND FALL INJURIES
Common slip and fall injuries may include:
Traumatic brain injuries
Spinal cord injuries
Back and neck injuries
The extent of damage inflicted by a slip and fall accident depends on a variety of different factors that are likely to vary considerably from case to case. Falls from elevation, for example, will typically cause more serious injuries than those which occur on one level, and falls which occur in the vicinity of structures or objects that may increase the risk of blunt force trauma are often worse than those that do not.
Our firm is committed to helping the victims of property owner negligence to fight for the financial compensation that they are due. Contact the Charleston personal injury lawyers of the Steinberg Law Firm at 843-720-2800.
