Sleep Deprived Worker Crashes Head-On into Motorist: Confidential Settlement
Jan 01, 2010
We represented the family of an oilfield safety supervisor who was killed in a head on collision with a vehicle driven by an undocumented worker who had been working for days without sleep. The worker was ordered by his company to drive several hours while he was extremely fatigued, resulting in him falling asleep at the wheel and killing Mr. Lee. As part of a significant confidential monetary settlement in 2009, the at-fault company agreed to conduct yearly safety seminars on fatigued workers and drivers, sponsor safety awards in memory of Mr. Lee, create safety hotlines to report unsafe work practices, and to clear all future employees with the Department of Homeland Security prior to hiring.
