Parking Lot Falls in Columbia, SC
Business owners in South Carolina have a legal duty to keep their parking
lots safe for their customers. When this duty is neglected it can mean
that customers must traverse open or hidden dangers just walking to and
from their car. Examples of dangerous parking lot conditions may include
the following among others:
- Accumulated chemicals or oil
- Potholes or cracks
- Uneven surfaces
- Slippery conditions
- Broken asphalt or concrete
Routine injuries after a serious parking lot fall may include broken bones,
knee injuries, minor brain injuries or injuries to the hands. Insurance
companies and business owners routinely fight
premises liability claims regardless of how neglected their parking lot was. The law in South
Carolina is clear though if the business owner was negligent, even if
the danger was in plain sight, you may still be able to recover for your
injuries. Damages that may be recovered include medical bills, lost wages,
pain and suffering and for any permanent impairment.
