SUMMERVILLE JOURNAL SCENE
Bland Richter, LLP, submitted a letter to the state agency on Friday. The practice has offices in Charleston and Columbia.
The letter’s stated goal is to notify DOT “of a dangerous condition on Delemar Highway from Cooks Crossroads to Ashley Ridge High School.” It demands the agency repair the roadway’s “defects in a reasonable time.”
State law exempts state agencies from claims arising from road defects unless the agency fails to correct the defect in a reasonable amount of time after being notified of the problem.
