Family Seeks Compensation for Hydrogen Sulfide Death

The family of a deceased man is suing Martin Product Sales, claiming that the man died from cardiopulmonary arrest after being exposed to hydrogen sulfide, a toxic chemical smelling like rotten eggs.

Sharon Ailes, Brandi Lawrence and Tamika Evans, the wife and children of Michael Ailes, has filed a lawsuit March 19 in Jefferson County District Court against the company.

Martin Product Sales is a subsidiary of Martin Resource Management Corp, a Texas-based provider of transportation, marketing and logistics management services for hydrocarbon products and by-products, chemicals and other bulk liquids.

According to the plaintiffs, Michael Ailes worked for Martin Product Sales on July 23, 2009. On that day, he was exposed to excessive amounts of hydrogen sulfide, as a result of which he suffered cardiopulmonary arrest and died thereafter.

The complaint states the plaintiffs lost Ailes’ companionship, society, love, comfort, care, maintenance, support, services, advice and counsel; suffered mental anguish, emotional pain and distress; and lost Ailes’ inheritance as a result of his death.

The complaint blames Martin Products Sales for its negligence. The plaintiffs are seeking a judgment within the jurisdictional amounts of Jefferson County District Court, in addition to pre- and post-judgment interest, costs and other relief that the court deems appropriate.

58th District Court Judge Bob Wortham will be presiding over the case.
