Attorney David Allen considers a case involving a bad car crash. The person who caused the crash was
going home from work after a 22 hour shift. Without much sleep the employee fell asleep at the
wheel. The person who suffered injuries claimed the employer of the responsible party was also
responsible. There were two arguments. First, the condition of being sleepy was a result of the work
done for employer. Second, the employer should not let someone who was very sleepy drive. The case
was eventually decided by the Maryland Court of Appeals. To view David Allen's analysis of
