A: A South Carolina attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. At this point, you could reach out to injury law firms in your state to try to arrange a free initial consult - that's the norm in the industry. An attorney could examine the accident in detail and advise you of your rights and options. I hope your child is okay. In terms of the related issues about habitability or the lease, a landlord-tenant attorney should advise on those. Good luck
