What is a Slip and Fall Accident?
Slip and fall is a phrase used to describe a type of legal case in which a person trip and falls suffering a personal injury on another person’s property.
Slip and fall accidents may occur at commercial businesses or in private residences. South Carolina law allows people who have been hurt while lawfully on others’ property to hold the property owners financially accountable.
If you have been injured, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost income from missed work, pain and suffering and other losses. You should not be burdened with debt for an accident caused by someone else’s disregard for safety.
Typically, the compensation is a negotiated insurance settlement paid by the insurance company representing the owner of the property where the accident occurred. Insurance companies try to minimize the amount they pay by making the victim’s injuries seem less serious than they actually are, or by trying to shift the blame to the accident victim. It is important to have a determined and experienced South Carolina slip and fall attorney handling the negotiations for you.
If an insurance company refuses to agree to a reasonable settlement, David Blackwell Law is prepared to file a slip and fall lawsuit and go to court if necessary.
