Premises Liability Accidents
When you visit a retail store, an office or the home of a neighbor or friend in Marion or elsewhere in the Pee Dee area, you have a right to expect that the property will be reasonably safe and free of hazards. When property owners fail to maintain their properties and fix dangerous conditions or warn adequately if the condition cannot be repaired promptly, serious accidents may happen. Injuries that occur on another’s property are in the area of law known as premise liability. Premises liability accidents include slip and fall accidents, trip and fall injuries, inadequate security, dog bites, accidents involving elevators and swimming pool accidents. Each premises liability case is unique and depends on the specific facts and circumstances of how the accident occurred. The Marion, SC injury attorneys at Jebaily Law Firm will thoroughly investigate the unsafe condition that caused your injuries and apply our many years of experience to pursue full compensation on your behalf for the injuries that occurred on another’s property.
