Firm Represents Waitress Who Suffered Burns to Arm from Gas Leak
Jury Verdict: $3.1 Million
A Manhattan woman who was 23 years old when she was severely injured while working as a waitress by a gas explosion, received $3.1 million in damages against the lighting company. The plaintiff was on her break in the employees' bathroom when she lit up a cigarette next to a pipe that was leaking natural gas, which ignited and engulfed her face, hair, arms and hands in fire. She was hospitalized for a month, and was permanently disfigured from the burns and numerous skin grafts that were required to repair her face.
