Prior Knowledge of a Hazard

Our experienced South Carolina lawyer discusses what happens when the defendant claims the had no prior knowledge of a hazard in a premises liability case.


Could I still recover damages if the defendant claims they were not aware of the hazard?


Recently, someone in South Carolina called my office and notified us that they had been injured in a store in a shopping mall in South Carolina. They told us that the store manager was saying their store was not liable for this unsafe condition because they didn’t have any notice. In other words, they didn’t know about it, so they couldn’t fix it. We know that this store manager was being disingenuous, which is a fancy word describing being fake. The realty is all store managers know that a store has a duty to conduct periodic inspections for trip hazards when they are inviting the public to come to their store and spend their money.

Any Prior Knowledge of a Hazardstore manager that is saying things like this is a store manager that is attempting to squirm out of responsibility for the injury to you in this case.
