Attorneys may be able to help victims of slip-and-fall accidents

There are many different factors that could result in an injury on private property in South Carolina or other areas. Slip-and-fall accidents often occur when property owners fail to take certain measures to insure their facility is safe. When this happens, they may find themselves legally responsible for any injuries that are suffered on the premises. A woman in another state is pursuing legal action against a corporation after a fall.

According to reports, the woman was in the lobby of an office building when the accident occurred. For reasons that have yet to be determined, the elevator stopped too high, failing to become level with the floor. When the woman attempted to enter the elevator, she tripped on the high floor and fell to the rear wall.

The woman was injured in the fall, though further details were not reported. Her lawsuit purports that the defendants failed to properly maintain and inspect the elevator, which led to her fall. She is seeking approximately $1.3 million in damages as well as a jury trial.

Slip-and-fall accidents have the potential to result in serious injury for those involved. In addition to the emotional burden this can cause, victims may also face unexpected medical expenses. Those in similar situations would likely benefit from consulting experienced South Carolina personal injury attorneys to discover the legal recourse available to them. If successfully litigated, a personal injury claim such as this could provide monetary damages that could be used to help pay medical bills and other related expenses.
