Our South Carolina personal injury attorneys understand that establishing a duty of care in a negligence case can be a complicated matter.
In Millea v. Erickon, the defendant, Erickson, often worked as a babysitter. She lived at home with her mother, Paula Myers, and her mother's boyfriend, John Laughlin.
On August 20, 2011, the plaintiff's parents asked Erickson to watch their 10-month-old daughter ("the baby"). As she had done on previous occasions, Erickson would watch the baby at the Laughlin/Myers apartment, where she lived.
