Many companies will hire the driver. He will just have to check them out, and put that information to the recruiter first to prevent wasting time.
Additionally, there are as many companies that will not hire him. Sad, but true.
A close friend lost ALL his trucks (5) in a non-preventable. He was forced to sell them, to pay legal cost. A drunk driver crossed over the median, killing 6 of 7 in the car, the car hit his driver head on. The survivors family sued.
He won the case after 2 years in court. But, at what cost?
