We know South Carolina personal injury law, civil court procedures, and how to get the maximum compensation that you are entitled to under the facts of your case and South Carolina law, whether that is through a quick settlement or litigation with the business and its insurance company.
We will do everything that is legally and ethically within our power to ensure that you receive full and fair compensation from the insurance companies and the business, individual, or municipality that caused your injuries.

Learn more about premises liability
(slip-and-fall) Law in South Carolina
What is Premises Liability in SC?
When a property owner creates or ignores an unsafe condition on their property, they are responsible for any injuries or damage caused.
Whether the property owner owes a duty of care to the visitor depends on the visitor’s status.
The property owner owes the highest duty of care to invitees – people who are on the property at the owner’s express or implied invitation.
Licensees – those who have permission to be on the property for the licensee’s benefit, are also owed a duty of care although it is lesser than that owed to an invitee.
In general, trespassers are not owed a duty of care by the property owner, although there are exceptions like when the hazard is an “attractive nuisance” that might attract children.
What Types of Premises Liability Cases Do We Accept?
Premises liability law encompasses much more than just slip-and-fall cases and may include:
- Slips and falls on someone else’s property,
- Trips and falls on someone else’s property,
- Swimming pool injuries or deaths,
- Amusement park injuries or fatalities,
- Building fires,
- Animal attacks or dog bites,
- Injuries caused by inadequate maintenance of property or equipment on the property, and
- Assaults that were caused by inadequate security measures on the property.
Sources of Recovery
To recover damages after a slip-and-fall accident, we must be able to prove liability and damages, and there must be a source of recovery.
Depending on the facts of your case, we may identify multiple defendants/sources of recovery including:
- The business owner and their insurance policies,
- The homeowner and their insurance policies,
- A municipality that caused the unsafe condition,
- Other individuals or businesses that contributed to the unsafe condition, or
- Your own insurance policies when appropriate.
Won’t the Business Just Pay My Claim?
It was their fault, so they will probably just do the right thing and pay your claim, won’t they?
Don’t count on it.
Insurance companies will do everything they can to avoid paying or to limit your claim – they will claim the accident was your fault, that there is no liability, that you were “comparatively negligent,” or that you are exaggerating your injuries.
Your slip-and-fall lawyer knows South Carolina law, the insurance company’s tricks, how to get a quick settlement whenever possible, and how to litigate your case when the insurance company refuses to pay.
