A business owner and his employee were killed in an electrical accident on the morning of Wednesday, February 19.
Lloyd Folsom Jr., the owner of the South Windsor-based Folsom Construction, was on company-owned property at 140 Rye Street with Connor Betts when the tragic accident happened. Betts lifted the big rig of a dump trailer to dredge the snow that had amassed when it suddenly touched a live war on its way up. Betts was immediately electrocuted. Folsom got out of the car to assist Betts, but he, too, touched the charged trailer.
Both men were rushed to the hospital but, unfortunately, were pronounced dead before 2 p.m.

CBS News reported on January 13 that Tyson Foods Inc. has announced a recall of approximately 33,840 pounds of chicken products due to the possibility of Salmonella bacteria contamination.
Tyson Foods Inc. is voluntarily recalling its mechanically separated chicken products after the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) and the company found that seven people have suffered an infection from a strain of Salmonella in a Tennessee correctional facility.
The FSIS stated that the products bear an establishment number of P-13556, found inside the Department of Agriculture’s inspection mark. The recalled products were manufactured between November 29 and December 5, and have been available for institutional use throughout the country.

An article published yesterday in the New England Journal of Medicine reported that any tasks considered to be secondary to driving increase a driver’s chance of being involved in either a car accident or near-accident. The risk factor was much greater for novice, or new, drivers than it was for those drivers with years of experience behind the wheel. Any behaviors that distracted a driver from the road and their driving was considered to be a secondary behavior.
The Naturalistic Teenage Driving Study(NTDS) studied the driving habits and consequences of distracted driving in novice drivers for a period of two years, while the 100-Car Naturalistic Driving Study studied the same habits and effects of more experienced drivers for a period of one year. The findings of the two studies showed that all drivers are more at risk of being involved in an accident if they are using their cell phone, whether to make a phone call or text. However, the risk was higher for young/new drivers.
If you have been involved in an accident caused by a distracted driver in Connecticut, you may be owed compensation for any harm you have endured. Speak with our legal team at the Law Offices of Paul Levin today about your legal options and how we can help by calling (860) 560-7226.

Nora Freeman Engstorm, an associate professor of law at Stanford, recently had her research regarding the coverage of product liability legislation in the country and non-commercial, 3D-printed products published in the Stanford Report on December 12.
In her research entitled “3-D Printing and Product Liability: Identifying the Obstacles,” Engstrom stated that injuries associated with products manufactured at home are excluded from the coverage granted by the traditional laws surrounding product liability. This means that victims of defective non-commercial goods, such as 3D-printed products created at home, would have to seek compensation through a personal injury claim, which requires them to prove that the maker had committed negligence that led to injury, rather than a strict product liability claim.
At the Law Offices of Paul Levin, we believe that any person in Connecticut who has been physically and financially harmed by defective products should seek legal advice as he or she may be owed compensation from the manufacturer. Speak with us about how you may be able to obtain much-needed compensation and justice by calling (860) 560-7226 today.
