Injuries Suffered At Stores Or Shopping Centers
An integral part of daily life for many, running errands and shopping finds consumers visiting grocery stores, retailers, malls and convenient stores. While most are in and out without incident, there are a number of reported injuries that occur due to accidents in stores and shopping centers in South Carolina.
South Carolina law requires storeowners and managers to provide a safe and secure property for both employees and patrons. They could be liable for an individual’s injuries if negligence is proven. Consider the following conditions that might result in a personal injury or premises liability claim at a store or shopping center:
- Wet, oily or slippery floors
- Uneven walkways
- Poorly stored merchandise
- Inappropriate behavior by employees or patrons
- Inadequate lighting
- Construction hazards
It’s important to understand that when floors are wet or walkways are covered with ice and snow, premises liability law allows sufficient time for employers and business owners to clean up floors and shovel sidewalks. It only becomes a legal issue when the dangerous conditions are not addressed in a timely manner and lead to the injury or death of another.
