Can Damages Be Recovered For Injuries On Someone Else’s Property In South Carolina?
In South Carolina, all property owners are obligated to provide a safe atmosphere for visitors. While they may not be able to prevent all accidents from occurring, they should exercise reasonable care for the safety of their guests.

Was The Property Owner Negligent?
While a property owner may not be able to prevent all accidents from occurring, they can take proactive measures to keep visitors safe. These actions include:
- Notifying guests of hidden dangers such as rickety stairs
- Securing swimming pools and other areas that can be harmful to children
- Promptly cleaning up spilled liquids to help prevent a slip-and-fall accident
When property owners fail to provide a safe atmosphere, our attorneys will defend you. We will ensure all appropriate paperwork is filed and all evidence from the incident is documented to help strengthen your case. If a property owner’s negligence contributed to your injuries, we will hold them accountable.
