$750,000 for Defective Product in “Scalding Water Leak” Injury

A delivery driver brought his car in to the dealer for a water leak repair. A week later he returned because the leak continued. He was told to continue driving the car and return a few days later. But on his way out of the dealership lot, leaking water that had been collecting in the car’s heater core, due to a clogged drain, poured onto his foot. The scalding hot water caused third-degree burns requiring a partially successful skin graft and a permanent nervous system disorder (called reflex sympathetic dystrophy) that creates a constant burning sensation across the instep and lower leg. Our client also had to quit his job.
