Understanding Premises Liability
Premises liability is a legal concept that typically arises in personal injury cases where the injury was caused by some type of unsafe or defective condition on someone’s property. In South Carolina, these cases can include a variety of scenarios, such as slip and fall accidents, inadequate building security leading to injury or assault, accidents on construction sites, dog bites, and more.

Property owners in South Carolina owe a duty of care to all lawful visitors. This means they must maintain their property in a reasonably safe condition, warn of any known dangers, and make regular inspections to discover any potential hazards.
