Personal Injury Suit Blames Ocean City Hotel

Personal Injury Suit Blames Ocean City Hotel

The family of a father and daughter who died while staying in an Ocean City hotel in Pennsylvania recently filed a personal injury suit.

The suit claims that the hotel was negligent and is responsible for the deaths of the two tourists who were supposedly killed from carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning while staying at the hotel.

Tourists Poisoned in Hotel

Patrick J. Boughter and his daughter, Kelly M. Boughter, were staying at a Days Inn on the boardwalk when they died in their sleep from carbon monoxide exposure.

The suit regarding the incident that occurred in the summer of 2006 was filed earlier this week.

Although the deaths were accidental, the Boughter family filed the suit in order to prevent such an accident from happening again.

Defendants Named in the Suit

Named as defendants in the suit are:

  • The Bay Shore Development Corp.,
  • The owner of the Days Inn Hotel in Ocean City
  • Heat Transfer Products, Inc.
  • All About Plumbing
  • Family Seeks Compensation

The suit cites negligence, breach of warranty and strict liability in the sudden deaths of the victims.

The surviving members of the Boughter family are seeking $30 million in personal injury damages for the wrongful deaths of their family members.
