Other information
COMPENSATION
In a British High Court ruling in 2007 he won the right to compensation of more than a million pounds from the employer for whom he was working at the time of his accident. The court ruled that while Eyres must bear some responsibility for falling asleep at the wheel of the company van, his former employer's culture of long hours contributed to his fatigue.
