$200,000 compensation for 3-year-old scalded in Las Vegas
We recently obtained $200,000 in compensation for a 3-year-old girl who was scalded while on a family holiday in Las Vegas (USA). The family were having a meal in a restaurant in Las Vegas when a waitress spilled scalding hot water on our young client.
Our client needed emergency treatment at a local US hospital before flying home to England where she received further treatment from a specialist plastic surgeon. Our client then had to go through two years of painful treatment and hospital visits. Although she has now finished her treatment, she still has scarring to her face and upper body.
At first, the restaurant owner refused to accept any blame for the incident. We therefore commenced court proceedings in the USA and progressed our client’s claim which was fully prepared for trial. Just before trial was listed to start, the restaurant owners accepted they were at fault and agreed to pay our client compensation of $200,000.
