Wrongful Death Lawsuit: The estate of a warehouse worker who was killed when a crate of steel rods fell on him accepted $1.11 million from a settlement.

The plaintiff died of head injuries. The Middlesex County suit alleged that the defendants were negligent in stacking the crates and that it would have been impossible to unload them safely.
