An Illinois family is seeking more than $100,000 in wrongful death damages, plus costs and attorney’s fees, in a wrongful death lawsuit filed in regard to the tragic death of their son in November 2012. According to the lawsuit filed by Timothy and Renee Sagez on May 22, 2014, Jason Sagez, the couple’s son, was killed on November 15, 2012. At that time, he was performing maintenance on a ship named the Jennie K, which was on a floating dock in Hartford, Illinois. The dock, on which the National Maintenance and Repair operates a business, is located on the upper Mississippi River.
The Sagez parents allege that Jason used a chain hoist to remove a propeller from the ship, and that the chain hoist malfunctioned in the process. As a result, the propeller hit Jason and killed him.
The hoist was manufactured by Columbus McKinnon Corporation. The plaintiffs are seeking wrongful death damages from Columbus McKinnon, saying that they lost their son’s society, services and support due to its negligence. They claim that Columbus McKinnon is at fault in Jason’s death because the company negligently manufactured a link in the chain hoist and failed to warn of the chain’s defective condition.
The Sagez family is represented by James R. Williams of the Law Offices of Williams, Caponi and Foley in Belleville, Illinois. The lawsuit was filed in Madison County Circuit Court in Edwardsville, Illinois.

Marlboro recently released a 3-in-1 promotional flashlight, compass and match holder. Approximately 365,000 products were released to the general public before the company realized the serious burn hazard posed by the product. The device is set up as a hollowed-out flashlight with a compass at the alternate end. The compass screws off, revealing 20 wooden matches that came inside the product. On the inside of the compass is a removable foam insert separating the matches from the striker pad.
Marlboro has already received eleven reports of the matches inside the device igniting, with two reports of the matches actually exploding. At least one consumer required medical attention for burn injuries to his hands. Consumers are being advised to stop using the product and immediately remove the matches. The company is offering replacement items of equal or greater value.
