$775,000 – Hot Water Burn

Posted in and tagged by Kenneth A. Wilhelm, Esq.

In 2009, we recovered $775,000 for a three (3) year old child who climbed on top of a toilet tank and was burned by hot water from the sink. We were able to recover this amount even after the law had been changed to make it extremely difficult to recover money for these types of cases. It was also difficult to prove that a three (3) year old child could climb up to the toilet tank as this young boy did when he was injured.
