5 Tips From Our Premises Liabiltiy Lawyers

Injured due to a fall, trip, or dangerous condition? Be sure to:
  • Make a complaint to an employee or manager on duty, fill out an incident report form and secure a copy of it. Record the names of any employees you talk to.
  • Take photographs and video of the dangerous condition with your cell phone or camera.
  • Identify as much information about the condition as possible.
  • Obtain the name, address and telephone number of any witnesses.
  • Do not discuss the case with anyone, and do not give any recorded statements about it to any insurance adjusters who may contact you.

Safe Premises Are Your Legal Right

Land and business owners in Charleston, South Carolina and beyond have a legal duty to provide safe premises for patrons, renters and guests. When that duty is ignored, innocent people are often seriously injured or killed and entire communities are placed at risk. Premises liability laws are designed to hold land and business owners accountable when death or serious injury occurs as a result of their negligence. Hazardous or dangerous premises are usually an unfortunate consequence of negligent behavior. Yarborough Applegate stands ready to help with a team of experienced attorneys. We handle cases involving:
  • Negligent & inadequate security
  • Construction site accidents
  • Accidental drowning
  • Amusement park accidents
  • Slip & fall accidents
  • Liquor Liability/dram shop
  • Legionnaires' Disease from dirty hot tubs or pools
  • Food poisoning

Help For Construction Site Injuries

Victims of construction site accidents are often killed or left with catastrophic injuries including traumatic brain injuries, amputations, spinal cord injuries, quadriplegia, paraplegia, shattered bones, crush injuries and severe internal injuries resulting from:
  • Electrocution
  • Crane accidents
  • Scaffolding accidents
  • Collapsed structures
  • Defective machinery
  • Improper use or maintenance of construction equipment
  • Compressed gasses
  • Mechanical hazards
  • Welding accidents
  • Cutting accidents
  • Exposure to toxic substances
  • Construction site falls
All too often, these accidents occur because property owners hire un-licensed contractors to perform construction work, or because general contractors, architects or subcontractors fail to take the necessary precautions to provide a safe work site. The failure to properly maintain ladders, tools, scaffolding or other equipment, the failure to hire, train and supervise careful co-workers, the failure to comply with material safety data sheets and State and Federal laws (like OSHA) regulating construction sites, and the failure to warn of dangerous conditions can all result in horrible but preventable accidents.

At Yarborough Applegate, we limit the number of catastrophic personal injury cases we handle at any one time, so we can devote maximum resources to achieving substantial compensation for each of our clients. We are committed to giving each client the time and attention he or she deserves. We work with top experts from every discipline to prove the elements of each case. Our premises liability law firm works as a team so clients receive the benefit of the collective experience of our lawyers, paralegals and investigators.
