Andy Payne Settles a Case Involving an 18-Wheeler Servicing Oilfields
Oil companies work 24 hours a day, and often push their employees to work hours that make them a danger to everyone on the roadway. In this case, PayneMitchell was able to show that an oil company allowed its worker to drive an 18-wheeler despite little sleep. Not surprisingly, the driver fell asleep and crossed the center line, killing the occupants of an oncoming vehicle. The case settled shortly after jury selection began for a large settlement and a change in company policy.
