Alleged Walgreens error leaves minor child with drug injuries

Sometimes, pharmaceutical litigation in Ohio involves large class action lawsuits against drug companies. Other times, though, such lawsuits are more personal in nature, but that does not mean they are any less important. In fact, when a child suffers drug injuries due to professional negligence or carelessness, it can be difficult to think of anything more important than making sure justice is served and, perhaps equally crucial, ensuring such mistakes don't endanger the lives or well-being of other children in the future.

Ohio automobile accidents: Fatal head-on crash in Summit County

From fender bender to head-on collision, a car accident is bound to ruin anyone's day. Understandably, no automobile accidents are as tragic as those as those that claim a life. Sadly, a fatal crash occurred on a recent Tuesday afternoon.

Woman alleges on-the-job asbestos exposure led to her cancer

Sometimes, asbestos-related illnesses take years or even decades to develop to the point that the symptoms are diagnosable. Unfortunately, by then, it is often too late, as the cancer and other diseases related to asbestos exposure are typically incurable and eventually fatal. Often, the exposure occurred in the course of the Ohio individual's work career, when his or her employer failed to provide adequate warning or protection against the carcinogenic material.

Lawsuit alleges secondhand asbestos exposure led to fatal cancer

Research suggests that the dangerous and carcinogenic nature of asbestos has been known for over 100 years. In fact, workers were warned to avoid the substance as long ago as 1913, with researchers pushing for warning and education of workers as early as the 1930s. By the mid-1960s, experts had found a causal link between asbestos exposure and the deadly cancer known as mesothelioma.

Product liability suit alleges truck caught fire, injured man

Legally, in Ohio and across the U.S., manufacturers, suppliers and distributors, retailers and others who make products available to consumers are responsible for any injuries those products cause. Though still unacceptable, sometimes the flaws in a product are minimal enough that they result in minor damages. When the injuries are severe, however, or even life-threatening, the support of a product liability attorney may be the best option for victims.

Lawsuit alleges exposure to toxic materials caused fatal cancer

While Ohio's rich historical involvement in industry and manufacturing often puts it high on the list for lawsuits involving dangerous or hazardous substances, it is not alone in this sad distinction. Tragically, either through their employment or other means, numerous individuals around the country have been exposed over the years to toxic materials -- toxic materials that eventually caused them to sicken and even die. A recently filed lawsuit in another state alleges just such an instance of exposure to hazardous substances, with fatal consequences.

Woman files lawsuit in relation to exposure to toxic materials

Many businesses in Ohio and elsewhere use chemicals in the manufacture of a variety of products on a daily basis. While a great deal of these chemicals may prove harmless, others can be dangerous, and should an employee be exposed to toxic materials, he or she could suffer long-term or permanent damages in the process. A woman in another state has recently filed a lawsuit against several companies after she suffered severe respiratory issues by being exposed to harmful flavoring chemicals.

Car accidents: 2 dead, numerous others injured in recent crash

Each driver has a duty of care to protect the safety of everyone nearby when out on the road. Unfortunately, sometimes a breach in this duty occurs, and one person's negligent actions can place those nearby in harm's way. Car accidents that occur under similar circumstances can be devastating. A recent collision involving four vehicles in Ohio has claimed the lives of two individuals, and left numerous others with injuries.

Former Conrail employee alleges toxic materials caused cancer

While asbestos is a fairly well-known carcinogenic, it's sadly not the only hazardous material in Ohio – or across the nation – that can prove life-threatening. In another state, a man is apparently experiencing first-hand just what those consequences of prolonged exposure to toxic materials can be. The ex-train trackman and machine operator has filed a legal complaint alleging that he developed bladder cancer as a result.

Couple alleges hazardous materials led to man's skin, lung cancer

Imagine spending one's whole life working hard at a job every day, only to eventually develop a life-threatening medical condition as a result. Sadly, that's exactly the scenario a recent lawsuit regarding exposure to hazardous materials is alleging. While this specific incident did not occur in Ohio, residents will recognize enough similar elements to realize it easily could have.
