We know that property and business owners have the responsibility of ensuring the safety and security of everyone who is within the premises of their property. Slip & fall claims are the most common premise liability cases, but other accidents or injuries that cause liability disputes include, but are not limited to:
- Falling Objects
- Broken Sidewalk
- Lack of Security
- Improper or Lack of Warning Signs
- Dog Bites
Premises liability laws vary from state to state, but let the South Carolina Premises Liability Attorneys at George Sink, P.A. Injury Lawyers help explain your rights within the state of South Carolina and get you the proper care and recovery of damages you deserve.
Your Level of Responsibility
Is the property owner liable if an illegal trespasser injured themselves on their property? No.
One of the first factors that we evaluate is determining the legal status of your visitor. If your visitor was illegally visiting your property and injures themselves, you would not be liable for the visitor’s injuries unless you intentionally hurt the trespasser.
If the trespasser is a child, your level of responsibility increases because children do not recognize hazardous conditions as well as adults.
The highest level of visitor safety responsibility is for business property owners and home owners. If dangerous or hazardous conditions aren’t properly repaired, the property owner is required to display visible warning signs to prevent any accidents from occurring.
