$1,000,000 Premises Liability
A six week old girl was at a day care center when the day care worker, while warming her bottle, accidentally splashed scolding hot water on the baby's shoulder and breast. The child suffered severe third degree burns from her should to her wrist and on her left breast. Skin grafting surgery was performed on the child, but she is left with serious, permanent scarring from her shoulder to her wrist and on her breast.
Our firm sued the day care center, for failure to follow proper procedures and for not having sufficient staff on duty at the time of the incident. The case settled for the $1,000,000 insurance policy limits.
