Summary Judgement Order Affirmed

Updated: Sep 23, 2020

Sweeny, Wingate & Barrow, P.A. attorneys Mark Barrow and Brandon Gottschall obtained summary judgment for a developer in a motor-vehicle accident lawsuit filed in Richland County, South Carolina. The summary judgment has recently been affirmed by the South Carolina Court of Appeals. This case arose out of allegations by the Plaintiff that a third-party driver collided with the Plaintiff after the driver ran a stop sign that Plaintiff alleged was partially obscured by branches. The trial court found that the developer did not owe Plaintiff any duty in regards to maintaining for a stop sign that was within the public right-of-way and that the Plaintiff failed to present any evidence demonstrating that the developer was the proximate cause of the Plaintiff’s injuries. The Court of Appeals affirmed.
