Robert L. Weinberg of Belsky, Weinberg & Horowitz, LLCsuccessfully won a settlement for policy limits in a
wrongful death claim involving multiple fatalities. The firm represented the
mother of a decedent driver who had pulled onto the shoulder of I-95 in Howard County at the suggestion of his passenger who believed the driver “looked tired”. After pulling onto the shoulder to switch drivers, a Ford Explorer left the travel portion of the roadway, striking and killing the two occupants of the vehicle, who at the time were standing next to their vehicle. An argument was made that the driver was negligent for stopping ina no stopping area, however, Mr Weinberg successfully argued at mediation that the case law stood in contradiction to this argument. Clearly, the proximate cause of the accident was the defendant’s bad driving and not the passive conduct of the plaintiff in standing next to his vehicle.
