Types of Slip-and-Fall Accidents in SC
A frightening aspect of a slip-and-fall accident is that it can happen anywhere at any time. In an instant, the victim of a fall accident can suffer such serious injuries as a traumatic brain injury (TBI), spinal cord damage, a broken hip or even death. In addition to the pain and suffering caused by a slip-and-fall accident, it can easily lead to medical costs and other losses that create a crushing financial burden.
A slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accident can happen at a store, business, on a public street or sidewalk, in a private home or just about anywhere. When property owners or other responsible parties neglect hazardous conditions that result in an injury-causing fall, they may be held liable for the fall victim’s losses.
