Wrongful Death Claims

Recognizing Slip and Fall Accidents

Accidents involving slips and falls happen when people lose their balance on a surface and fall because of dangerous elements including damp flooring, uneven pavement, or debris. Serious injuries from these incidents might include fractures, traumatic brain injuries, and spinal cord injuries. Tragically, slip-and-fall incidents sometimes cause needless deaths, leaving families distraught and in search of explanations.

Identifying Who Is Responsible for Slip and Fall Wrongful Death Claims

It is legally required of property owners in South Carolina to keep their establishments safe and to alert guests to any potential dangers. If someone else’s negligence causes a slip and fall accident on their property, the owner of the property may be responsible for any injuries or fatalities that follow. It is frequently necessary to demonstrate that the property owner knew or should have known about the dangerous situation and neglected to take appropriate action to remedy it in order to establish responsibility in slip and fall wrongful death lawsuits.

Compiling Proof and Constructing a Powerful Argument

An exhaustive investigation and careful planning are necessary for a slip and fall accident wrongful death claim to be successfully pursued. Building a solid case requires gathering evidence, including witness accounts, security footage, maintenance records, and medical reports. At David W. Martin Law Group, our seasoned attorneys are adept at carrying out thorough investigations and defending our clients’ rights.
