Be Informed: South Carolina Negligence Laws

Negligence is the legal doctrine that requires people to conduct themselves in a way that conforms with our legal duties and what reasonable people would do. In general, the elements of negligence are:

  • A duty of care was owed by the defendant to the plaintiff

  • The defendant breached that duty

  • There’s a causal connection between the defendant’s conduct and the harm to the plaintiff

  • The harm was a proximate cause of defendant’s actions, meaning the harm was foreseeable

  • The plaintiff had damages resulting from the defendant’s conduct
