Premises Liability

At Robinson Gray, we represent a variety of companies and businesses that are frequently faced with claims that occur on their premises. Our attorneys have experience investigating and litigating these issues, whether it involves a customer who slips and falls on water or a more serious incident that results in death.

We have handled premises liability cases throughout South Carolina in the circuit, federal, and appellate courts. Our team regularly litigates premises matters for a diverse group of clients, including retailers, convenience stores, apartment complexes, hospitals, restaurants, hotels, grocery stores, car dealerships, and numerous other private and commercial property owners. Regardless of the client, our goal remains the same: to provide an aggressive defense as economically as possible and consistent with our clients’ expectations of service and risk management.

No case is too small or too large. A sampling of our past cases includes allegations involving slip, trip, and falls; assault and battery; wrongful death; dram shop liability; slander; false imprisonment; trespass; nuisance; intentional infliction of emotional distress; and property damage. We strive to provide the highest level of counsel to our clients in every case, from the highest risk to the minor claims. Our team understands that protecting the client’s reputation, while minimizing risks to their business assets, is tantamount to our representation of their interests.
