  • Good Samaritan hurt on road sues those involved in crash

    Kelly Shaw and Matthew Conway decided to run across five lanes of southbound Interstate 270 to offer help to victims of a crash on the northbound side one September afternoon in 2000. Shaw didn't make it. And he will never be the same.

    QUOTE
    Attorneys for Shaw are seeking millions of dollars in damages for the injuries that left him brain-damaged. But they're not suing the driver of the car that hit him; they're suing two drivers they say are responsible for the eight-car pileup in Maryland Heights that prompted their client to try to help.

      Huh?
      “I’ve always stated, ‘I’m a Missouri Tiger,’” Anderson said March 13 after Arkansas fired John Pelphrey, adding, “I’m excited about what’s taking place here.”

      Asked then if he would talk to his players about the situation, he said, “They know me, and that’s where the trust comes in.

        I remember this accident, as I sat on 270 for over an hour. It was horrible and I feel for the guy that was trying to help.

          As a hypothetical, if my wifes flies somewhere on a business trip, and the plane crashes and she dies, can I sue the people that set up the business trip?

                              They have legal basis, to whom exactly in the 8 car pile up is questionable. Duty of Care was breached by everyone in that pile up and that goes all the way to the good samaritans should they get hurt trying to help.
