Multi-Million Dollar Settlement for Scalded Worker

Joe was assigned to work in a water treatment facility. Before work was to start, the facility was supposed to ensure that the area was safe and that all sources of steam had been isolated. Tragically, the facility had not fulfilled its responsibilities and Joe was scalded. Although Joe received excellent care at the burn unit that prevented any permanent scarring, he had endured tremendous pain. The facility eventually recognized its responsibility and honored what Joe had had to endure.
