$300,000.00 Settlement; Burn Injury – Kerosene Heater
A three-year-old child suffered a second and third-degree burn injuries on 20 percent of her body when her clothing caught fire as she approached a portable kerosene heater.
The plaintiff’s lawsuit alleged that the design was defective in that the safety cage around the unit was likely to fail and collapse, allowing the minor’s clothing to catch fire.
