A homeowner, just like a business, generally owes a duty to reasonably prepare a premises. That means to look at the home and property for defects which should be discovered with reasonable inspection. Basically, a homeowner who has a dangerous condition on his property which he knows about or should know about in the exercise of reasonable inspection can be liable to third parties injured by the same.

We have also recovered a South Carolina slip and fall lawyer $425,000.00 broken ankle settlement in a Myrtle Beach lawyer claim for a client who slipped on ice behind a storefront. We have also settled a $375,000.00 homeowner lawsuit in South Carolina involving a Sumter homeowner lawsuit in which a man was injured trimming trees on the property of another. Hughey Law Firm premises liability lawyers are currently prosecuting a South Carolina workplace injury claim in which a South Carolina workers compensation settlement was undertaken for our client in addition to a third party workplace claim when the building owner created the dangerous condition.
These claims can extend to dangerous conditions on the property of others, such as a South Carolina pool drowning claim or a failure to supervise claim. We have also pursued day care liability claims under similar circumstances.
