Ice and Premise Liability - Greenville Premise Liability Attorney

Ice and Premise Liability - Greenville Premise Liability Attorney

When you are somewhere that clearly looks dangerous, you're naturally going to be more careful. It's simply in our nature to walk a little more timidly across the street than it would be across your own yard. However, there are some places that you won't pay much attention to while you're walking because you expect to be safe. If you are walking on the sidewalk outside a store, for example, you can reasonably expect to not end up falling over due to untreated ice. It isn't unreasonable for you to expect it to have been salted, but sometimes a patch of ice just hits you when you least expect it to.

When you slip on ice, you often experience a range of emotions. Normally, these include embarrassment and frustration. Both are understandable responses to losing your footing, especially in such a fashion. It is even more understandable if you had expected the property to be taken care of correctly. Things like wet floor signs are often put out if there is a spill, but when there's ice outside there isn't much warning that can be done. This often means that a fall is not only possible, but likely.

While slipping and falling on flat ground may hurt your pride, falling down the steps can hurt more than just that. Ice that forms at the top of a step is a huge liability, even if it's only a single step like on a sidewalk. The property owner and manager has a duty to make sure that their location is as safe as they can feasibly make it for you and anyone else there. While they can't protect you from everything, issues like ice and other slippery substances need to be either dealt with or marked to keep you safe and healthy.

If you were injured on someone else's property because you fell on some untreated ice in the winter, give Wayne Hardee a call. He has decades of experience on cases such as these and can certainly help you get the compensation you deserve.

If you suffered from a fall and needed medical care, you deserve compensation. Make sure that Wayne Hardee is the lawyer you call for legal assistance today!
