First Capital Insulation Inc. fined for worker asbestos exposure

Asbestos, as most people in Ohio know, is an extremely toxic substance that can lead to mesothelioma and other debilitating types of illnesses. Despite this well-accepted link between asbestos exposure and serious health risks, some businesses continue to put workers and consumers at an unnecessary risk. First Capital Insulation Inc. -- an out-of-state insulation company -- was recently slapped with a fine for failing to protect its employees.

Hazardous materials found in Beech-Nut baby food

At least one child has been injured by a stray piece of glass that was allegedly found in a jar of baby food. Beech-Nut Nutrition -- the manufacturer of the baby food in question -- issued a voluntary recall following the injury claim. However, that may be of little peace of mind to Ohio parents who might now be worried about hazardous materials in their children's baby food.

Listeria-tainted hummus could mean more product liability suits

Despite safety measures set in motion by the FDA, there are still about four listeria outbreaks in America annually. These outbreaks are typically associated with food, many of which are common items in refrigerators across Ohio, and they sometimes prompt the need for product liability claims. The most recent listeria outbreak, which is the second this year, was caused by Sabra, a popular brand of hummus. 

Personal injury may be course to take after tragic wreck

Grief counselors have been made available at several schools in Ohio following a single-vehicle wreck that resulted in the death of two young people. Two others were also injured in the wreck, and the victims may later decide on a personal injury claim as an appropriate course of action. The driver who caused the wreck has not yet been identified, although authorities have noted that the driver will have to deal with felony charges once located. Felony charges are not at all atypical in car accidents that involve fatalities where the driver also fled the scene.
