10 Sep DeAnna Bearden v. Personnel Staffing, Inc and Jacques Hendon
TALLAPOOSA COUNTY SETTLEMENT OF $4,500,000.
Wrongful death case in which a tractor trailer being operated by a “temp” driver supplied by an employment agency was involved in a one vehicle accident. The truck veered off the road and crashed into a utility pole and several trees causing the death of Bret Shannon Willis, a 51 year-old Talladega County resident, who was asleep in the sleeper compartment of the truck. The driver had a criminal background and a poor work record. Pretrial discovery proved that no background check was performed prior to the driver being allowed to drive.
