Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) reached a $US13 million settlement on May 10 with former contractor Teodora Tapia
Tesla reached a $US13 million settlement on May 10 with former contractor Teodora Tapia, who was left “permanently disabled” after being hit by a Model S sedan, according to Parris Law Firm, which represented Tapia.
A Tesla representative told Business Insider that Joseph Aguilar, who was driving the Model S that hit Tapia, was an employee of West Valley Staffing Group, which the representative said “will pay the bulk of the settlement.” But in an April 26 court filing, Tesla agreed that it shared liability for Aguilar’s conduct with West Valley.
“We care deeply about the safety and well-being of everyone who works at Tesla’s facilities, whether they are a contractor or Tesla employee,” the Tesla representative said.
West Valley did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Tesla received more citations from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) related to vehicle manufacturing than Ford, General Motors, or Fiat Chrysler from 2017 through the end of 2018. Reports from Reveal published in 2018 claimed that Tesla misreported workplace injuries, avoided using safety markings for aesthetic reasons, and failed to give injured employees proper medical care.
