CASE LAW - Schurmann v Hoch
The case of Schurmann v Hoch arises from a collision that occurred at dusk in rainy weather. Mr. Schurmann was attempting to turn out of a parking lot onto the highway when he was struck by the vehicle Mr. Hoch (a GLP driver) was operating. Mr. Hoch had failed to turn on his headlights.
The justice found that the two drivers shared liability for the collision equally, Mr. Schurmann for not being more careful to observe before pulling out of the parking lot and Mr. Hoch for not turning on his headlights when conditions required that he do so.
