In Las Vegas, Nevada the mother of an 18-month-old boy who drowned in a hot tub in a daycare in January has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the daycare.
The mother of Jordan Williams says Marisela’s Family Daycare Center was negligent in caring for her son.
The Clark County District Attorney’s Office has not filed charges in the case, ruling the death an accident.
2 families have filed wrongful death lawsuits against Colgan Air Inc., Bombardier Aerospace Corp., Pinnacle Airlines Corp., and Continental Airlines Inc. concerning flight 3407 which crashed early this year on 2/12 in New York State during a heavy snow storm.
The cause of the flight is still under investigation but a few theories have emerged. Ice on the wings is one plausible reason but the Captain of the flight and his experience in this plane is also questionable. Capt. Marvin D. Renslow had just finished training on this plane 2 months prior to the accident and had only amassed 110 hours of flight time with this type of aircraft. What stumps investigators is why the plane took a 26 second nosedive straight down in a very violent accident. As a result 46 persons were killed on this flight.
A woman’s family was awarded $2.6M because of her indirect exposure to asbestos. Apparently the woman’s husband worked in an asbestos factory in the early 1960’s for a couple of years and brought home dust from the factory where she was exposed to it while doing the laundry. She died in 2006 of Mesothelioma.
Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer that occurs in the lining of the lungs and the chest. It is usually caused by prolonged exposure to particles of asbestos. The disease has a long delay usually from being detected and is usually in a more advanced stage by the time it is diagnosed.
