$80 Million Award to Truck Driver Told to Keep Driving0
The driver, Lauro Lozano claimed his employer made him enter false information in his truck driver’s logbook to make it look like he rested for the required amount of time when he did not.
Instead of resting, he just returned to Texas from a trip when he was told to take another shipment from Texas to Maryland.
He sustained a traumatic brain injury, crushed pelvis, crushed left foot and broken ribs when he fell asleep in his truck in another tractor-trailer on the way to Maryland.
The jury awarded Lozano $5 million in compensatory damages and $75 million in exemplary damages.
