How to Prove Negligence
To establish negligence in a slip and fall accident case – as well as a premises liability case – a plaintiff must prove that: the property owner owed the plaintiff a duty of care, the property owner’s breach of that duty, and the damages and injuries sustained by the breach of duty. In South Carolina, you have three years to ask the state courts for a civil remedy for any personal injury or death caused by a slip and fall accident.
Common slip and fall locations include the following:
- Grocery stores
- Small businesses
- Hotels and resorts
- Private homes
- Rented homes or apartments
- Public spaces
