This talent acquisition case takes place in Michigan and involves negligent hiring practices at a long-range courier service to transport antiques and other vintage memorabilia. The plaintiff was a driver for the company who was driving in the evening on the highway at full speed. There was another truck that was parked on the highway with its lights turned off. It was beginning to get dark outside, and the plaintiff was unable to see the truck. He crashed full speed into the parked truck. The accident left the driver paralyzed from the waist down and inflicted a range of long-term physical and psychological injuries that will require a lifetime of ongoing care. The parked truck was operated by a long distance courier service which was currently attempting to deliver vintage cars to an antiques auction several states over. The courier company hired the defending party to deliver the cars on a contract basis, and it is alleged that their negligence in doing so directly contributed to the accident.
