Property Owners and Safety Liability Laws

By Burch Law Office  Nov. 20, 2010 5:20p

Property owners, retail stores and other companies are all responsible for making a reasonable effort to ensure that there are few to no hazards on their properties that may cause injury to a person. If they do not take adequate measures such as highly visible warning signs to ensure the safety of pedestrians in their stores or on their property, they are liable for any and all injuries sustained until safety measures are taken. Slip and fall accidents are extremely common in nearly every part of the United States. These types of accidents can be very serious in certain situations and can result in severe injury to a victim. If you have suffered a slip and fall injury a Greenville slip and fall lawyer can help seek legal action against those responsible for your injuries.

Slip and fall accidents are much more serious than they may seem. Even though nearly all people will suffer a minor slip and fall accident without incident in their lifetime, many people also suffer severe wounds, broken bones, lacerations, brain injuries and even fatalities due to particularly dangerous hazards. A victim of a slip and fall accident can find himself or herself severely injured and even paralyzed if simple measures such as drying wet floors are not taken by property owners. Other hazards such as broken or missing stairs, poorly lit walkways, or uneven walking surfaces can all result in a slip and fall accident.
