Ven Johnson of Johnson Law, PLC Announces Friday Press Conference with Family of Bryan Douglas-Watts

PR Newswire — May 18, 2017

SOUTH BEND, Ind., May 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Attorney Ven Johnson of Johnson
Law, PLC will hold a press conference Friday, May 19, 2017 at 4:30 pm. Johnson
will be joined by Paula Watts, the mother of 13-year-old Bryan Douglas-Watts,
who died from carbon monoxide poisoning at the Quality Inn & Suites in Niles,
MI, on April 1, 2017. The conference will be held at the law offices of Sweeney
Julian, P.C. (1620 South Bend Avenue, South Bend, IN 46617).

Johnson recently filed a lawsuit on behalf of Bryan’s family and five other
victims of carbon monoxide poisoning. The lawsuit names Quality Inn & Suites
franchise owner Jayesh Patel, and parent company Choice Hotels International,
Inc. as responsible for the incident. It is believed that a faulty pool heater
system and absence of a working carbon monoxide detector caused the pool area to
fill with carbon monoxide.

The goal of this lawsuit is to not only compensate the innocent victims of this
tragedy, but to shine a light on the dangers of carbon monoxide and the
importance of new legislation. Current Michigan law only requires new commercial
buildings built after 2009 to have carbon monoxide detectors. Johnson stated,
“This truly is a silent killer. Without working carbon monoxide detectors or
alarms you don’t know what’s happening until it’s too late. Michigan law does
not do enough to protect our people. Even worse, based upon our research,
Indiana and Ohio have no laws on the books whatsoever requiring CO detectors. We
must draw attention to the obvious safety hazard and work together on
legislation to prevent this tragedy from ever happening again.”
