Premises Liability and Visitor Status in South Carolina
On a broad level, property owners have a duty of care under S.C. Code § 27-3-30 to maintain a safe environment for those who visit their property. The specific legal obligations for that duty of care differ depending on a visitor’s status when they are on another party’s property.
South Carolina premises liability law recognizes four different types of visitors, each entitled to a slightly different duty of care from the property owner:
- Invitees are those who have explicit permission to be on another party’s property. This includes diners in restaurants, shoppers at the mall or grocery store, Clemson residents attending an event at a public park, and more. Property owners have the highest duty of care towards invitees and are obligated to protect them from harm. They must warn visitors of known dangers and are responsible for hazards that they should have reasonably known about.
- Licensees might be invited to a property for social purposes, like neighbors or family members, but they may also include uninvited people who have implicit permission or are tolerated on the premises, such as mail carriers, delivery people, and the guy that reads your electric meter each month. Property owners must warn licensees of dangers that they know about on their property but won’t typically be liable for unknown hazards.
- Trespassers have no permission, explicit or otherwise, to be on another party’s property. Aside from intentionally harming a trespasser, owners have no duty of care to trespassers, unless they are children.
- Children have protection on a property regardless of visitor status because of the concept of attractive nuisance. An attractive nuisance is something that might draw a child onto a property. The most common attractive nuisances are swimming pools and trampolines; unprotected construction sites are also attractive to children. If your child has had a slip and fall on another party’s property, the court may hold the property owner liable, even if they were trespassing.
