Last summer, a NY woman who owned a vacation home in the popular resort town of Hilton Head Island, SC, was killed by an alligator while walking her dog near a lagoon in the Sea Pines oceanfront community. Unfortunately, the victim Cassandra Cline, was dragged into the lagoon by the alligator as she tried to save her pet from the animal and died in the process.
Now, her husband, James Cline, has hired a wrongful death attorney and filed a lawsuit against the Sea Pines Resort where it occurred. Mr. Cline claims that the Sea Pines Resort was grossly negligent, and his lawsuit alleges that the Resort was aware of the existing problems with alligators and therefore had an inherent duty to keep the public safe.
