Slip and fall accident in Columbia South Carolina

Were you injured in a bad fall? When this type of accident occurs, the victim sometimes feels too embarrassed to pursue a claim, or thinks it will be too difficult to prove it was someone else's fault. In fact, our attorneys have handled many slip and fall claims in South Carolina, and we know that oftentimes someone else's negligence is the root cause of the conditions that led the victim to fall.

Outside of your workplace or home, you may feel as though what happens, happens – the world is a risky place, and in this scenario, you were the recipient of bad luck resulting in a slip and fall. But there are situations in which someone is responsible for the unsafe conditions, and they can be legally held accountable for the failure to address such conditions.

In South Carolina, like anywhere in the country, these are some of the most common causes of slip and fall claims:

  • Icy or snowy walkways
  • Wet floors
  • Uneven floor surfaces
  • Damaged or uneven sidewalks
  • Spills that haven't been cleaned up
  • Objects or store merchandise falling from their displays
