$215,000 Recovery For Injured Teen
Our client, a minor teenager, was at a friend’s house when another teenager decided to start a fire by throwing gasoline on a pile of leaves and paper, causing the gas can to explode. This explosion caused second degree burns over a large portion of our client’s body. Prior to this incident, the owners of the property were aware that the teenagers had been starting small fires and had warned them against the behavior. However, the gas can was left in an unsecured area for the teens to access. Settlement was reached at mediation with the property owner’s insurance. Injuries: Second degree burns on hands, face, arms, stomach & knees resulting in permanent scarring. Damages: Pain and suffering, past and future medical expenses, scarring/disfigurement.
