Slip and Fall

Ensure Your Interests are Protected

You can become a victim of slip and fall at any time.  You may trip in an unfilled hole in your neighborhood.  Or, take a fall at work.  A wet floor in a store is a recipe for disaster.

The sad thing about slip and falls is that they can result in both acute and long-term injury.  Sometimes the full extent of injury does not manifest for months down the road.  The goal of insurance companies is to get you to settle your case as quickly as possible. They will generally offer you compensation that seems to be generous in the moment but is a fraction of what you deserve.  They do this because once you’ve settled your case, there is no going back to re-negotiate.  You need an experienced attorney to handle your case and ensure your interests are protected.

South Carolina has a statute of limitations on slip and fall incidents. So, if you are involved in a slip and fall, you need to file your case within three years.  Not doing so may mean leaving thousands of dollars and ongoing medical bills on the table!
