South Carolina premises liability law is based in common law and statutory law but starts with negligence. To prove liability for negligence in South Carolina, an injured party must prove the following:

  1. Camden Premises Liability Lawyersthe defendant owed the plaintiff a duty of care,
  2. the defendant breached that duty, and
  3. the plaintiff suffered an injury as a result of the defendant’s breach.

Premises liability law is different from common negligence, providing additional guidance beyond basic negligence. The duties owed by a defendant to an injured party are defined in South Carolina by the condition of the property and the activities being conducted by both the injured party and the defendant. Further, beyond conditions and activities, the proper analysis to be used is determined by the nature of the plaintiff’s presence on the property.

Types of Camden Premises Liability Claims

Under Camden premises liability law, property owners are required to appropriately warn visitors and guests of their property of any unsafe conditions to prevent injury. Some injuries could be brain injury, spinal injury, and any other type of personal injury. Any occupant or owner of land or a building can be held liable for a premises liability claim. Parties who may be held liable for a premises liability claim include:

  • Small and large business owner,
  • Commercial property and their managers (mall, condo, apartment)
  • Grocery store
  • Box store
  • Restaurant
  • Gas station
  • construction site

Premises liability injuries are caused by many conditions, including:

  • Swimming pool drownings and unfenced swimming pool injuries
  • Defective or dangerous conditions
  • Improperly maintained premises
  • Elevator or escalator accidents
  • Slip and fall
  • Wet floors
  • Accidents involving ATVs or Golf Carts provided by occupants
  • Improper or insufficient security

Classification of Camden Premises Liability Injury Victims

Under South Carolina law, the amount an owner can be required to pay as compensation to a victim depends, in part, on how the victim is legally classified:

  • Invitees: Invitees enter the land of another individual at the express or implied invitation of the occupant of the land. Often, this arises when the person entering the land is doing so for the mutual interest of the parties or to the interest of the occupant. An occupant or land-owner owes a duty of reasonable care to an invitee, which carries a duty to warn of “latent” or hidden defects and dangers. The owner must have actual or constructive knowledge of the defect to give rise to this duty. Constructive notice means that the occupant or owner has reason to believe that condition exists, and it would be discovered following reasonable inspection. An example of an invitee is a customer in a store or a contractor working on a property with the permission of the owner.
  • Trespasser: Trespassers enter land belonging to another without any invitation, right, or lawful authority. They enter for their own purposes, for pleasure or convenience. Trespassers are merely owed by the owner of occupant a duty of not being harmed by willful or wanton conduct or conditions.
    • Exception for children: An exception to the rule, as it applies to trespassers, is if the injured party is a child. If the owner or occupier knows or should know that trespass by children is likely, and they are likely to encounter or be attracted by a condition that is unreasonably dangerous, that owner or occupier may be subject to liability.
  • Licensees: Licensees are allowed entry to a property by the consent of the owner or occupant. The duty of care owed to a licensee is not quite as heightened as that owed to an invitee. Owners and occupants are responsible to warn licensees of conditions that are actually known to the owner or occupant. There is not a requirement to actively inspect and discover dangerous conditions on the land or to make unknown conditions safe.

As you can see, there are various factors and analyses that must be applied when looking at a premises liability case. Whether you have been injured on somebody’s hunting land, a store, a friend’s rental property, or any other property of another, contact our Camden Premises Liability Lawyers today to see if you may be entitled to compensation. Such an analysis can be overly complex and difficult for an injured party and their family to navigate. A premises liability lawyer can help you analyze the situation and determine liability.

What Our Clients Say

They truly care
Mrs Vallery, who answered the phone took more care and attention to detail than any other law office, that I have called, in 2 years+. She diligently took notes to give to the lawyers and cared about my situation and let me actually tell everything without cutting me short. Out of over 100 law offices, this is rare treatment. Care. Consideration. That means more than anything going through this…

From Self-Representation to Victory in SSDI Case!
My experience with Mario and his staff was outstanding. When everyone said to give up my case with SSDI and after being poorly represented and losing. I had to file my own appeals and represent myself. I literally called every attorney in the book. Then I called Mario cold – I expected one more no! Well, this gentleman took my case and won. He knows the law and cares a lot. I am proud to call him my friend. If you need a professional to help you, call these guys.

A Lifesaver in the Courtroom, Ensuring Freedom with A1 Professionalism
Needed a lifesaver. I had gotten myself into a bad situation and the possibility of going to prison. Through the diligence and hard work done by attorney Alley B., I was able to walk out of that courtroom a free man. No tricks just hard down attorney work. She was an A1 professional and knew every inch of the Law pertaining to my case. For that, I am forever grateful.
