Retail Liability

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Although a retail establishment is not the insurer of the safety of its customers, it owes a duty to the customer to keep its premises in a reasonably safe condition.  Customers bring claims and lawsuits for falling merchandise, slip and falls, trip and falls, false imprisonment, abuse of process, defamation, malicious prosecution, failure to provide adequate security from criminal attacks on the premises, negligence hiring and supervision and more.

Whatever legal issue a South Carolina retail establishment faces, the experienced attorneys at Baker, Ravenel & Bender have the experience  to represent them. We can handle the case from initial investigation to trial to appeals if necessary. We also can advise establishments on how to set up policies and procedures to attempt to avoid litigation or be ready to defend litigation when it arises.
