Slip and all accident liability generally falls on the party responsible for the location where the accident occurred, sometimes called premises liability. For example, a customer who slips on a spill or trips on an object while shopping in a grocery store may be able to hold the grocery store owners liable for his or her injuries by showing that the owners failed to act reasonably in maintaining the safety of the premises. Our Summerville slip and fall attorneys can investigate your slip and fall accident, determine liability, and help you recover for your Summerville slip and fall injuries.
In most cases, South Carolina law states that the property owner is responsible for a dangerous condition if he had actual notice of the danger or should have known about the dangerous condition because it existed long enough that a reasonable person should have discovered it.
Another example of owner responsibility relates to a store owner and his/her employees. If an employee was notified of a dangerous condition on the store premises (indoors or outdoors) and the condition was not addressed, the owner is responsible.
