Taking Action Against Landlords For Accidents On Rental Properties

A large portion of the millions of people who come to the Myrtle Beach area every year for vacations, parties and conferences stay in rental properties instead of hotels. When you enter one of these properties, you expect that the owner has taken every precaution to keep you safe.

When accidents do occur on these rental properties, and you or a loved one is seriously hurt, you need to know where to turn for help. At The Law Offices of L. Morgan Martin, we represent people who live in South Carolina and those who are visiting the state and region for recreation.

We Can Guide You Through The Legal System

If someone rents their property to you — an apartment, condo, duplex or house — they need to take reasonable actions to address obvious hazards that could cause you harm. Some accidents on rental properties that could happen due to a property owner's negligence include:

  • Faulty or non-working locks that led to a break-in
  • Burn injuries due to not providing a fire extinguisher
  • Drowning due to not addressing any safety hazards at a swimming pool on the property
  • Falls down stairs due to broken railings or uneven steps
  • Gas leaks that caused a fire or explosion
  • Not properly storing boxes or other large items that could fall on guests

Whether the property owner personally manages the premises or they hire a management company, we know how to pursue the compensation that you deserve from the responsible parties. We have more than 30 years of litigation experience and millions of dollars recovered for clients that add to our sterling reputation in the area.
