Understanding South Carolina Premises Liability Law

Premises liability is the legal argument that the owner of a property can be held legally responsible for the injuries suffered by others when those injuries occur on that owner’s property. Issues of premises liability can arise in a variety of contexts, including slip and fall accidents at a grocery store, accidents suffered in the parking lot of a business, and even injuries sustained on the private property of private citizens.

Under South Carolina law, a property owner is required to maintain their premises in a reasonably safe condition. A property owner can be held liable for the injuries of another if caused by a dangerous condition on the property, and when that dangerous condition was caused and/or created by the owner.

Though general liability is imposed on a property owner, the obligation/duty of the property owner is based upon the status of the injured party.

The following provides a short overview of the three statuses available to property visitors:

  • Invitees: A property owner owes the highest duty of care to an individual who was invited to the property.
  • Licensees: A property owner owes a lesser duty to those individuals who were licensed to enter the property for business and other reasons.
  • Trespassers: A minimal duty of care is owed to a trespasser who entered the property absent a license or invitation to enter the property from the owner.

Both invitees and licensees are owed a duty of reasonable/ordinary care regarding their safety, and a property owner can be held liable for injuries that result from the property owner’s breach of this duty. When a dangerous condition on a property is hidden or latent, the property owner has a duty to warn an invitee of such dangers when known to the owner or when the owner should have known of the dangerous condition’s existence. However, the specific degree of care that is required is dependent on the actual circumstances underlying the injury, such as the capacity and age of the injured invitee.

Furthermore, business owners, homeowners and property owners possess a responsibility for the security and safety of all persons who are within the boundaries of their property, regardless of their status as an invitee, trespasser, or licensee. This means that dangerous conditions should be remedied by owners in order to avoid liability for any resulting injuries.
