Charleston Slip and Fall Accidents Lawyers

Personal injuries are very common, and they may happen any time, in any location and may take a variety of forms depending on nature of the accident. Some examples of the types of injuries that personal injury attorneys see most often include:

  • Animal bite injuries
  • Auto accidents
  • Defective product injuries
  • Motorcycle crash injuries
  • Injuries as the result of nursing home abuse, neglect
  • Slip and fall injuries
  •  
    Meeting the burden of proof and dealing with the legal process of a slip and fall accident case can be difficult. It is important to seek experienced legal counsel from a seasoned slip and fall personal injury attorney to assess the details of your case and to assist you in pursuing justice and a fair and equitable settlement or court verdict.

    When a slip and fall accident was the result of negligence on the part of a property owner or party responsible for maintaining a property, plaintiffs/victims usually obtain a settlement or award in compensation for the losses/injuries they have experienced.

    Slip and fall injury lawsuits revolve around the negligence doctrine, with the plaintiff alleging that they sustained injuries as a direct result of the defendant not acting responsibly and not living up to their duty of care. To effectively prove negligence in a slip and fall case, it must be proven by the victim that a reasonably cautious person, in the same situation as the defendant, would have acted differently in similar circumstances.

    Personal injury cases may be brought under two doctrines: the strict liability doctrine and the intentional wrong doctrine. In the strict liability doctrine, a party is held responsible/liable for an injury, whether they intended or not to negligently harm someone. If a case is brought under this doctrine, the victim/plaintiff must show that actual mental, emotional and/or physical harm was experienced.

    A case brought under the intentional wrong doctrine alleges an injury was caused by a deliberate act of another. In cases like that, punitive damages may also be awarded in addition to traditional compensation.

    There are many causes of slip and fall accidents:

  • Slippery floors
  • Poor lighting
  • Spills
  • Torn carpeting
  • Uneven stairs
  • Debris on walkways, hallways, stairs
  • No handrails on stairs
  • Cracked, heaving pavement
  • Icy walkways, parking lots, stairs
  • Worn, torn, chipped flooring
  • Building code violations
  •  
    If you have slipped and fallen as the result of the negligence of another party, you may be eligible to claim compensation. Make sure to take pictures of the hazard alleged to have caused the fall, get names of witnesses, if possible, see a doctor immediately and ask for a medical report. Do not accept any offer of a settlement from an insurance company or the person or party that allegedly caused your accident. Speak to your attorney.
