$2.5 Million - Fatigued Farm Worker Causes Collision

A mother driving her young children home after school in the family car collided with a grape harvesting vehicle near Valley Springs in San Joaquin County. The driver of the farm equipment was fatigued because his employer required him to work overtime for several weeks and he had been drinking. A seven year old girl was killed and her sisters and mother received severe personal injuries. We successfully held the large wine company employer responsible for the accident. The farm worker had been forced to work long hours and should not have been driving the grape harvesting vehicle on a public road.
