Could the death from a shooting at a Williamsburg County nightclub have been prevented and are justice and compensation available to the family of Jaylen Bradshaw?

Local News

Gunfire rang out at a Williamsburg County, South Carolina nightclub early Sunday morning, May 19, 2019, leaving one young man dead.  According to Live5News.com, “around 1 a.m., deputies responded to the Huell Enterprises night club on Blakely Road for a shooting.”  When officers arrived they found a deceased victim, according to the report.  The Williamsburg County Coroners Office has identified the victim as “Jaylen Bradshaw, 21, of Greeleyville,” according to KingstreeNews.com.  The media outlets report that other victims had been shot at the location but were taken to the hospital in personal vehicles.

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 prior incidents of violence been reported on or near the property?
  • Were security measures, such as bright lighting, surveillance cameras, security personnel, and security patrol in place to deter crime and protect the Jaylen Bradshaw and others at the time of the shooting?
  • Does the nightclub have a protocol to check guests for deadly weapons prior to entering the establishment?

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 property owners failed to provide adequate security to protect those on the premises, the family of Jaylen Bradshaw may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for their loss.  In addition, any other victims may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for their 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 family of Jaylen Bradshaw and any other injured victims retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.

Cherokee County, Alabama News

A car accident on County Road 14 involving two vehicles took the life of a Spring Garden High School student Wednesday morning according to WEISradio.com.  According to the news report, “[a]t 7:10am, emergency personnel were dispatched to the scene of a two-vehicle collision on County Road 14, just off of 19, which involved a car and a large truck outfitted with a trailer hauling a bulldozer.”  One individual was fatally injured according to the report, and that person was identified as “Colby Jake Slayton, 18….”  The WEISradio.com news story reports the accident happened when “Slayton, driving a 2008 Cadillac, was traveling eastbound into the sunlight when his vehicle crashed into the rear of the trailer – which was parked in the roadway – after the driver of the 2007 International truck had stopped, preparing to offload the bulldozer.”  Coosavalleynews.com reports “This was the second Cherokee County high school student killed in two weeks as the result of a wreck.”

Our Legal Take

As the details of this tragedy continue to develop, and if the truck driver is deemed to be at fault for improperly parking the vehicle in the roadway, the family of Colby Jake Slayton may elect to seek justice and file a civil claim for their loss.  Based upon its extensive experience and success handling these types of motor vehicle claims in Georgia, The Murray Law Firm suggests that Colby Jake Slayton’s family should retain an experienced personal injury firm to protect their interests and ensure an unbiased investigation. Photographs of the roadways and vehicles involved and a review of surveillance footage from nearby businesses or properties, if any exists, will need to be performed immediately before any evidence is damaged or destroyed.

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 families of Margaret Danielle Blanding and Ezquiel Estrich retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.
