$5,025,850 SETTLEMENT & ARBITRATION - Defective Product - Catastrophic Burns

Our client, a 63 year old man, suffered third degree burns to 40% of his body when a defective product exploded during a social event.  We brought claims against the product manufacturers, a large national retailer, and a third party consumer who used the product.  After preparing a multi-media presentation, the claims against the various defendants were settled following an arbitration and mediation for a combined amount of $5,025,850.
