A jury in northern New Jersey has awarded more than $2.7 million to the family of a man killed and several workers injured in a 2008 blast at a metal casting plant. The jury in Hackensack awarded $1.4 million of the judgment to the family of 61-year-old Mario Gomez, a married father of five from Jersey City. Gomez was killed instantly when a boiler-like pressurized tank exploded on Jan. 15, 2008, at the Tec-Cast Inc. facility in Carlstadt. It was reported that Tec-Cast failed to follow multiple safety regulations and failed to ensure that safety devices were operative. The company says it will appeal.
