Our leading South Carolina personal injury lawyer, Russell Mace, has negotiated another large settlement. Mr. Mace represented a couple whose three-year-old child tragically drowned while in a vacation home in Florida. The vacation home was required to install an alarm at each entry-way to the pool. Prior to the couple arriving, staff reported that the alarm was not working properly. Despite these reports, maintenance never repaired the alarm before the couple arrived. The alarm never sounded when the child went through the home’s sliding glass door to the pool. Mr. Mace was able to settle the case with the leasing company and homeowner’s for $2 million. The Sun News has described this settlement as “one of the largest settlements in a South Carolina-related case for 2013.”
Of course, no amount of money will ever mend the heartache and loss of the couple. Mr. Mace correctly described this case as a tragedy “because it could have been prevented with proper maintenance.” However, Mr. Mace is confident that this settlement will act as a deterrent for similar cases of negligence.
Mr. Mace aggressively represents his clients and fights for their best interests. He has over fifteen years of experience in civil litigation and has been voted as one of the 100 best trial attorneys nationwide. He has a high degree of knowledge about all stages of civil litigation.
