Family Files Wrongful Death Lawsuit against Amazon.com Inc

March 06, 2015

A family has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against several companies, including Amazon.com Inc, for the death of a Northeast Ohio high school senior.

Logan Stiner, 18, died of acute caffeine toxicity that led to a cardiac arrhythmia and seizure shortly before he was set to graduate.

The lawsuit, filed by Stiner's father, alleges that Amazon and six related Arizona-based companies violated Ohio safety laws by manufacturing, distributing or selling powdered caffeine.

The lawsuit also alleges that Hard Rhino, the creator of the caffeine powder Stiner consumed, should have labeled the caffeine power as a stimulant, not as a “dietary supplement,” and that the company also failed to properly warn the consumer of the difficulty in distinguishing between a safe dose and a lethal dose.

The Stiner family lawsuit asks for $25,000 in damages and has started a petition that asks the FDA to ban the powder.

I have used Eric a couple of times for my own injury cases. He is an excellent lawyer. He explains your case in plain English, and he is very helpful. He did such a great job for me that even my children have hired him when they needed a lawyer to help them, as well. He was willing to step in and do his thing. We love him and would recommend him highly!!! He works really hard for his clients! Yvette B.

I called Eric and he jumped in immediately. He got my hospital bills paid, and he got me compensation for my injuries. Did I get rich? No. I got what was fair and right, and I have Eric to thank for it. Since then I have referred Eric to friends in similar situations and he has always been able to help them through the legal process. He is top shelf in my opinion. John J.
