Anderson News

A fatal Anderson pedestrian accident claimed the life of 29-year-old Marshall Luke Dorociak Monday night, January 21, 2019, according to FOX Carolina.

The South Carolina Highway Patrol told 7 News, Mr. Dorociak “was walking southbound on SC-81” near Summerfield Lane when he was struck by a pickup truck. Tragically, he succumbed to fatal injuries. It is unclear whether the driver will face charges.

Our Legal Take

As the details of this tragedy continue to develop, and if the driver is found to be at fault, Marshall Luke Dorociak’s family may elect to file civil claims for their loss.

Based upon its experience and success handling pedestrian 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 vehicles 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 senseless Anderson apartment shooting have been prevented and are justice and compensation available to Mr. Bryant?

Local News

Security measures are in question after 28-year-old James Bryant Jr. was shot and injured at “The Woodlands apartments on Woodland Drive” Thursday morning, June 28, 2018, according to WSPA 7.

Police told Anderson Independent Mail, Mr. Bryant “may have been the victim of a botched robbery.” Despite multiple gunshot wounds, Mr. Bryant managed to drive himself to a nearby convenience store for help. He was transported to AnMed Health Medical Center.

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.

  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on or near property?
  • What security measures, such as gated-entry, surveillance cameras and security patrols, were in place to deter crime and protect Mr. Bryant at the time of the shooting?
  • Media reports indicate Mr. Bryant had to drive himself to find help. Where was apartment security and management during this critical time?

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, James Bryant, Jr. 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.
