When Slips And Falls Lead To Injury

Slips and trips contribute to more than one million injuries each year in the United States, as well as 17,000 deaths. They account for up to 15 percent of all workers' compensation filings. These accidents are most likely to result from inadequately maintained premises — whether it's a construction site, factory floor or office. Which is to say, many of these incidents could and should be avoided.

If you have been injured in an accident caused by someone else's negligence, your first step is to get medical help. But finding qualified legal support is a priority as well. The attorneys at Philpot Law Firm, PA, can help. Based in Greenville, we serve throughout South Carolina and are skilled in pursuing the compensation our clients need to pay their medical bills and related expenses. Contact us today to learn more.

Comprehensive Legal Help In Premises Liability Claims

Property owners (and, in some cases, business owners or supervisors) have the responsibility to maintain safe conditions for visitors and occupants. When unsafe conditions are overlooked, or a property owner chooses to ignore them, injuries occur. Slip-and-fall accidents can occur through ways such as:

  • A walking surface that is watery or icy
  • A sudden change in flooring causing you to trip
  • Poor lighting preventing you from seeing a hazard
  • Hidden hazards like a broken step or a sudden hole in the ground

Other types of injuries from unsafe property conditions can include:

  • Falling merchandise
  • Broken railings on stairs
  • Insufficient lighting
  • Negligent security
  • Poorly maintained elevators or escalators

If you have been injured, our firm can help. We can aggressively pursue compensation for your injury and help you chart the easiest path to recovery.
