A group of workers were packed into a van to transport them to a factory in Delaware when their van lost control injuring many of the occupants. This tragic accident was the result of a corporation’s desire to obtain cheap labor in Philadelphia and transport that labor force to their factory without having properly trained their drivers. The inexperienced driver was required to transport employees to Delaware and was directed to pack as many occupants into the vehicle as possible. At the time of the accident the van was significantly over capacity further contributing to a hazardous condition and making the vehicle more difficult to control. Another significant legal hurdle that Mr. Van Naarden overcame was ensuring the litigation remained in Philadelphia County.
