A wrongful death lawsuit has been filed against a plant in Marshall after the death of a worker occurred from a heat stroke.
The lawsuit states that the company failed to take the correct actions to protect the man from having a heat stroke. Three minor children filed the suit against Boral Industries, Inc. and Boral Brick Inc.
The lawsuit states that the man was performing intense labor in the extremely hot weather. His coworkers stated that he began to look lethargic and become disoriented. The man continued to work and was later found unconscious.
He was then taken to the hospital where he was in a coma for two weeks before he died. The defendant is accused of negligence for allowing the man to work in the unsafe conditions without proper protection and failing to monitor the man.
