TEPCO Found Liable For Deaths Of Fukushima Hospital Patients

A Japanese court found TEPCO to be 75% liable for the deaths of some of the hospital patients from Futaba that died during the evacuation of Fukushima. The ruling came as part of an individual lawsuit by a family over the death of their family member. This court statement could bring on more lawsuits or cause TEPCO to be established as liable for these other deaths.

Back in 2011 Futaba hospital was left for days unable to evacuate patients, some for days while the reactors melted down. The Japanese SDF was called in to help evacuate the remaining patients.
