Belsky Weinberg & Horowitz, LLC A Personal Injury & Workers’ Compensation Law Firm

Automobile Negligence Settlement--Pedestrian on Shoulder Killed

Robert L. Weinberg of Belsky, Weinberg & Horowitz, LLC successfully 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.
