$3,325,000 – Premises Liability Against Apartment Complex – Stove Tip-Over – Burn Injury
Attorney Jonah Flynn represented the family of two small children who were burned when a pot of boiling water fell onto them after a stove, installed without “anti-tip” brackets required by the building code, tipped over on them. Jonah Flynn established, using testing performed by leading experts, that the stove installed in the apartment was extraordinarily unstable, and was an accident waiting to happen. For years, apartment complexes have been required to secure stoves with “anti-tip” brackets that are provided with a stove; the defendant in this case admitted this stove should have been installed with such a bracket. Rather than face trial, the defendant settled, and the children will have adequate healthcare for their injuries for life.
