$300,000.00 Settlement; Burn Injury – Scald Burn
A two-year-old child received a scald burn injury in a federal housing project as a result of excessively hot water in the apartment where he was living.
The hot water heating system was locked in a closet, out of any control of the tenant. When the child got into the bathtub, hot water in excess of 150 degrees burned him before his mother could get him out.
