North Charleston Slip and Fall Accident Lawyer

Experienced South Carolina premises liability attorneys skillfully pursue fair compensation for those injured in slip and fall accidents

Falls are a leading cause of accidental injury in South Carolina and across the United States. Individuals, businesses and government entities all have an obligation to ensure that their property is safe for visitors. When a visitor on another’s property is hurt because the owner failed to take the necessary precautions, the injured guest can claim monetary damages against the owner.

The North Charleston slip and fall attorneys at the Steinberg Law Firm can help you get the money you deserve after an injury occurring on another’s property. We have over 90 years of hands-on experience helping accident victims hold negligent parties responsible for their actions. Whether you were injured on public or private property, we can help you understand your rights.  

Common North Charleston Premises Liability Accidents

Slip and fall accidents can occur anywhere, at any time. Often, it is when someone least expects it that they encounter a hazard on another’s property. A few of the most common types of slip and fall accidents in North Charleston are:

• Cracked sidewalks
• Uneven pavement
• Wet floors
• Defective stairs
• Poorly lit areas
• Broken, loose or missing handrails
• Torn carpet or broken tile

Regardless of what caused your slip and fall injury, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your injuries. However, a landowner’s duty to you as a visitor depends in large part on the reason you were present on the owner’s property.

A Property Owner’s Duty to Visitors 

South Carolina law divides all visitors into three types. The extent of the duty owed to a visitor depends on which category they all into. The three categories of visitors are:

Trespassers – A trespasser is a person who does not have permission to enter the property, grounds or establishment. Property owners do not owe trespassers a duty of care, except that a landowner cannot intentionally cause a trespasser harm.

Licensees – A licensee is a guest who is present on another’s property for non-commercial reasons. Licensees include friends and family members. Property owners must warn licensees of all known hazards that may not be readily apparent to the licensee.

Invitees – An invitee is a customer or guest of a business. Property owners owed invitees the highest duty of care, which requires they keep the premises reasonably safe and warn the invitee of hazards that they may not discover independently.

Most North Charleston premises liability cases are brought by invitees, as they are owed the highest duty of care. However, licensees also bring a fair number of claims, as a property owner’s duty to a licensee is still significant.
