Under South Carolina law, property owners usually have an obligation to keep visitors safe from harm. If an owner is aware of a hazard on their property, they need to take action to repair the problem or issue an adequate warning to guests and others on their property. If they fail to do so, they may be liable for any injuries that occur from a slip and fall accident.
