Personal Injury Lawyers Representing Charleston & nearby areas of South Carolina
A person goes to a stadium with planning to enjoy whatever game or event is being presented, then to go home safely afterwards. Sadly, some spectators have their outings cut short or ruined. Many stadiums around the United States are old buildings that have rarely been fully renovated or repaired. As a result, some of these buildings may fail to meet reasonable safety standards. These buildings pose a threat to all guests of a facility as they can cause serious injuries.
A stadium’s owner or agents have a basic responsibility to keep their premises safe. These individuals may not work to properly maintain the seating or building features, opening attendees to the dangers of an accident. Accidents at these fields and parks can result in serious injuries that require medical attention. The following problems can occur:
Falling injuries due to a lack of sufficient railing
Slip and fall injuries from slick surfaces
Falling object injuries from a lack of safety nets
Injuries from a fire due to insufficient fire prevention measures
Elevator and escalator injuries
The costs of treating these injuries can prove too much for many customers, adding financial insult to physical injury, even if they have reasonable health insurance coverage. This is one reason why it is strongly advisable to consult with a skilled and experienced attorney, as you may be able to recover financial compensation through a civil lawsuit.
If you or someone you love has sustained a serious injury because of a stadium property manager’s negligence, you may wish to consider legal action. For more information regarding your options, contact the Charleston stadium injury attorneys of the Steinberg Law Firm today by calling 843-720-2800.
