At Twenge + Twombley, our Beaufort property accident lawyers are familiar with a variety of premises liability cases. Slip and fall accidents are among the most common type of property accidents seen across the Lowcountry. These accidents occur when someone slips, trips, or falls on somebody else's property and suffers a personal injury. They typically can be caused by a variety of factors including wet floors, torn carpeting or broken floor tiles. Other types of premises liability cases include:
Negligent security: Property owners have a legal obligation to keep their premises secure and protect visitors from robberies, assaults and other violent crime. Failure to do so could result in a premises liability claim if someone's hurt on the property.
Restaurant accidents: Restaurant owners may be held liable if a person slips and falls or is assaulted on their premises. In addition, restaurant owners who serve alcohol to minors who then get into serious accidents or serve patrons expired food could be held accountable.
Poor maintenance: A poorly maintained property poses risks to all visitors who use that property. It could be a floor board with a nail sticking through, dim hallway lighting, or a loose handrail on a stairway. When property owners fail to meet maintenance standards, people are put at immediate risk.
