Last year the law firm of Nelson & Rozier working together with co-counsel settled a multi-million dollar lawsuit filed in Kern County arising from the oil fields north of Bakersfield. An oilfield worker preparing to spend a week shift on an oil rig drove around doing errands and drinking alcohol. Eventually he veered into the opposing lanes on Highway 65 and killed a mother and father and injured their young son who was a passenger. A second son was not in the vehicle. The suit was filed in Bakersfield, Kern County California. Settlement funds were placed in a trust account controlled by the boy’s aunt.
