Premises Liability – $500,000 Settlement for Burns to Infant from Steam Riser Pipe in Bronx Apartment

This personal injury action involves a nine month-old infant who suffered severe burns when he fell off of a bed and came into contact with an exposed, uncovered, and uninsulated extension and riser pipe in the rear bedroom of his parents’ Bronx apartment.  Because of this egregious violation of NYC housing code, the Personal Injury Attorneys at Antin, Ehrlich & Epstein were able to obtain a $500,000 settlement for the infant.

The infant plaintiff sustained 2nd and 3rd degree burns to his bilateral thighs, which resulted in permanent scarring.
