How to Prove Property Owner Negligence

A property owner can be held liable for your injuries if they failed to maintain a safe environment or warn of a dangerous condition that existed on the property. Although proving property owner negligence can be complex, your legal team can use the experience of experts in construction or engineers to help prove liability. There are many factors of proving liability but generally, the injured party will have to prove:

  • that the person whose actions led to the injury (the defendant) owned, leased or occupied the property
  • that the defendant was negligent in their use or treatment of the property
  • that this negligent behavior was a substantial factor in causing the injuries sustained

Helping You Hold Property Owners Accountable

Actionable causes of slip and fall accidents can include:

  • Wet or slippery surfaces
  • Cluttered walkways
  • Broken tiles
  • Torn carpeting
  • Uneven stairways
  • Cracks or potholes
  • Parking lots with tripping hazards

Though not strictly a "slip and fall" accident, falling debris is also a frequent cause of premises liability claims. Whatever the condition that caused your accident, if the property owner created the condition, knew of the condition, or should have known of it, they may be held responsible to compensate you for your injuries. If you're not sure whether the injury you suffered was caused by the negligence of the property owner, consult a Charleston personal injury attorney from Kahn Law Firm, LLP today!

Filing a Personal Injury Claim in South Carolina

The State of South Carolina allows up to three years for personal injury victims to file a claim. This statute of limitations specifies that the three year period begins on the date of the accident. It's important that victims of personal injuries caused by another's negligence contact an attorney as soon as possible to discuss options for recovery. There may be important evidence from the scene of the accident such as witness statements or photographic evidence that may be able to assist in proving negligence in your case. Our team can help you understand the intricacies of filing a personal injury claim and will help you throughout the entire process of recovery.
