Wrongful Death Archives

Suit filed after researcher gets infected with bacteria, dies

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration recently cracked down on a medical center associated with Veterans Affairs after the death of a 25-year-old research worker in April 2012. The man passed away after becoming infected by a bacterium he was working with, Neisseria meningitidis. According to OSHA, his infection and subsequent death may have been prevented by the VA medical center had the facility been obeying federal workers' regulations. Recently, a wrongful death suit was filed by his family.

Ohio plastics plant cited for safety violations

Berry Plastics is a company that has manufacturing facilities in more than 80 cities. One of these facilities is in Monroeville, Ohio, and is at the center of a recent report from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration indicating that the plastics manufacturer violated several safety regulations. Some of these violations are listed as serious, which means that the issues could have caused serious injury or death. Had they caused the latter, it is likely that a wrongful death suit would have been filed.

Oil industry riddled with fatalities

Though the oil industry is not as prominent in Ohio, it is still relevant and data reported by the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration regarding the industry is important to know. According to that data, oil workers and miners are victims of the highest number of deaths in some states. This is alarming and the circumstances surrounding some fatalities have resulted in wrongful death suits from survivors of the victims.
