How Is Fault Determined in Your Slip and Fall Case in South Carolina?

Some of the elements that must be considered when determining liability in your slip and fall case include:

  • Duty of care – The property owner or the person responsible for the premises generally has a duty to take reasonable care to protect members of the public from dangerous conditions
  • Breach of duty – The other person may have breached their duty of care by failing to maintain a safe premises if they:
    • Had notice of the hazardous condition and failed to exercise reasonable care to warn against it or fix it; or
    • Created the hazardous condition
  • Causation – Their possible breach of any duty of care must have directly caused your injury
  • Damages – How did you suffer from any breach of care on their part? You may be entitled to significant compensation

The insurance company may tell you that you contributed to your slip and fall injury and deny you any compensation. For example, they might argue that you were distracted by your phone or not paying attention before you fell.
