Michael J. Goldberg Secures $2.2 Million for Drunk Driving Victim’s Family
Michael J. Goldberg recently obtained $2.2 million for a family still greiving the loss of their loved one. The 64-year-old victim was on his way to work when he was struck head-on by a 19-year-old drunk driver who crossed the center line without warning. The victim left behind a wife of 40 years as well as three adult children. With aggressive representation and by utilizing creative social media tactics, Mr. Goldberg was able to prove that the vehicle driven by the 19-year-old was negligently entrusted to him by the young adult’s father and business owner, who knew or should have known of his son’s propensity to drink and drive. By establishing the negligent entrustment theory, Mr. Goldberg was able to secure enough insurance coverage to maximize the amount of compensation for his clients to the fullest for their devastating loss.
