Myrtle Beach News

A fatal Myrtle Beach cycling accident claimed the life of one person and left another injured early Tuesday morning, January 1, 2019.

According to  WBTV.com, the cyclists were hit by an SUV on Highway 501 “near Conbraco Circle,” around 3:40 a.m. Tragically, one succumbed to fatal injuries. The surviving victim was transported to Conway Medical Center with injuries.

Another cyclist was struck and injured by a vehicle on “Highway 501…by Conbraco Circle” in September 2015, per WMBF reports. The incidents raise questions over street lighting and bicycle and pedestrian safety measures in the area.

Our Legal Take

As the details of this tragedy continue to develop, and if the driver is found to be at fault, the victim’s family may elect to file civil claims for their loss. Additionally, the surviving victim may also pursue claims for any injuries suffered.

Based upon its experience and success handling cycling accident cases, The Murray Law Firm suggests that the victim’s family should retain an experienced personal injury firm to protect their interests and ensure an unbiased investigation. Photographs of the vehicle and roadways involved and a review of traffic surveillance footage will need to be performed immediately before any evidence is damaged or destroyed.

Could this tragic Aiken nightclub shooting have been prevented and are justice and compensation available to Marcus Simpkins’ family?

Local News

Security measures are in question following a fatal shooting “at Bea’s Club” in Aiken Monday night, January 7, 2019, according to WRDW.

Police told The Augusta Chronicle, Marcus Simpkins was discovered “in a front parking lot of the club.” Mr. Simpkins was transported to Aiken Regional Medical Center, where he tragically succumbed to fatal injuries.

Our Legal Take

Nightclub patrons have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The Murray Law Firm questions the level of security provided on the property and whether this tragedy may have been prevented.

  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on or near property?
  • What security measures, such as weapons screenings, bright lighting, monitored surveillance cameras, and visible security personnel, were in place to deter crime and protect Mr. Simpkins at the time of the shooting?

Generally, property owners are required to protect all those legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm. Should the facts of this matter reveal that the nightclub owner or management failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, Marcus Simpkins’ family may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for their loss.

Based upon its prior successful experience in handling security negligence claims on behalf of victims and their families, The Murray Law Firm suggests that photographs and a thorough, unbiased inspection of the property will need to be performed immediately, before any evidence may be repaired, damaged or destroyed. Given the complexities of pursuing a negligent security case, it is imperative that the victim’s family retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.

Could this senseless Nashville apartment shooting have been prevented and are justice and compensation available to the victim?

Local News

Security measures are under scrutiny after a man was shot and injured during an apparent robbery outside a Nashville apartment complex Thursday night, January 3, 2019.

According to News 4, “officers responded to the Meridian at Hermitage Apartments on 5610 Old Hickory Blvd. where they found a man who had been shot.” The victim’s identity and condition have not been released.

Police told FOX 17, investigators believe the shooting “stemmed from an attempted robbery.” They are still searching for the gunman.

Our Legal Take

Apartment residents and guests have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The Murray Law Firm questions the level of security provided on the property and whether this shooting may have been prevented.

  • How did the shooter gain entry to the complex?
  • What security measures, such as gated-entry, fencing, visible surveillance cameras, tenant background checks, bright lighting, and security patrols, were in place to deter crime and protect the victim at the time of the shooting?

Generally, property owners are required to protect all those legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm. Should the facts of this matter reveal that the apartment complex owner or management failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the victim may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for his injuries.

Based upon its prior successful experience in handling security negligence claims on behalf of victims and their families, The Murray Law Firm suggests that photographs and a thorough, unbiased inspection of the property will need to be performed immediately, before any evidence may be repaired, damaged or destroyed. Given the complexities of pursuing a negligent security case, it is imperative that the victim retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.
