Wife alleges Conrail's toxic materials led to husband's death

While the use of asbestos has been highly regulated for years now, instances are still coming to light far too frequently in Ohio of workers from railroads and factories who developed illnesses and cancer from this or other hazardous substances. Even worse, many of these diseases prove fatal. Tragically, in another state, a woman has recently filed a lawsuit alleging that years of exposure to toxic materials in his line of work directly led to her husband's death.

Rash of wrong-way automobile accidents plague Cleveland area

Two individuals were injured recently in a head-on collision in Ohio. Sadly, this is the third in a series of wrong-way automobile accidents in the Cleveland area in just the last few months. Thankfully, no one was killed in this most recent crash, but others have not been so lucky.

NutriBullet involved in yet another product liability lawsuit

Ohio consumers have the right to know of the potential risk they may be facing when using the Nutribullet Pro blender system, an allegedly dangerous household device. According to complaints in a recent product liability lawsuit, a total of 22 customers to date have come forward, claiming to have suffered severe injuries as a result of using the product. Alleged victims of the blender seek to hold legally responsible the device's manufacturer and distributer, Homeland Housewares.

Woman awarded $12M after drug injuries leave her vegetative

Sometimes, pharmaceutical litigation lawsuits in Ohio involve drugs that were perhaps rushed through the Food and Drug Administration approval process, only to later be found unsafe due to side effects. Other times, though, the errors are due solely to a health care professional's careless oversight or poor judgment. Sadly, regardless of the scenario, the resulting drug injuries often prove catastrophic if not fatal.

Asbestos exposure in textile mills caused cancer, lawsuit alleges

While the use of asbestos in certain types of products has not been completely banned, at least the substance is more highly regulated. Tragically, the lasting effects of decades of asbestos use in manufacturing continues to be a problem in Ohio and around the country. In another state, for example, a legal complaint was filed only last month alleging that years of on-the-job asbestos exposure led to a former textile worker's development of cancer.

Claim: Faulty respirators allowed exposure to hazardous materials

Imagine using a device intended to protect against toxic substances, only to later discover that the product failed in the very purpose for which it was specifically designed. This is precisely what a product liability lawsuit in another state alleges. A worker developed lung cancer because, the complaint claims, the respirator designed to protect him from work-related hazardous materials failed.

Family alleges laxative drug injuries led to infant's death

Many Ohio families rely on medications to keep them healthy. Medicines are supposed to be highly regulated to ensure they achieve their primary function, to heal the sick. When drug companies fail to do their jobs properly and drug injuries result, pharmaceutical litigation seeks to hold the responsible parties accountable for their errors.

Lawsuit alleges workplace asbestos exposure led to fatal cancer

In Ohio, exposure to toxic substances such as asbestos often occurred in factories when employees were unprotected while working with products containing hazardous materials during the manufacturing process. Unfortunately, this was far from the only scenario in which asbestos exposure occurred. In another state, for example, a widow claims that her late husband's pancreatic cancer was caused by exposure to such toxic materials during his line of work.
