This Is The Lawson Law, P.C. Way

Slip-And-Fall Injuries Can Be Confusing

The law and procedures related to slip-and-fall accidents, also known as premises liability, can be confusing and there is a lot of misinformation out there. As the law firm you call after a slip-and-fall injury in South Carolina or Georgia, we at Lawson Law, P.C., want to make sure you know the facts about this type of personal injury law.

The following are three of the most important things you should know about slip-and-fall injuries.

  1. They can be serious. A sudden fall can cause you to land on your head or back, injuring your brain, neck, spine or back. Depending on the circumstances, you could be disabled for life.
  2. Negligent property owners can be held responsible. Property owners have a legal duty to keep their premises reasonably safe for visitors. For example, if there is a spill at a grocery store, the store’s owner or manager must make sure it gets cleaned up, or at least put up a warning sign. If management does nothing and a customer falls as a result, the store could be legally responsible for the customer’s medical bills, lost wages and more.
  3. Proving fault can be complicated. In some cases, other parties may also be involved, such as the manufacturer of a defective railing. At Lawson Law, P.C., we go through the evidence closely to uncover facts that others might not notice. That is just part of the Lawson Law, P.C., approach to personal injury law.
