$5.4 Million Settlement for Family of Burn Fatality

The Philadelphia Burn injury lawyers at Wapner Newman settled a motor vehicle collision on behalf of a married, 36-year-old owner of an excavating company who tragically died 92 days after sustaining second and third degree burns over 61 percent of his body and severe smoke inhalation injuries as a result of a motor vehicle accident. The man was stopped and waiting to make a left-hand turn when he was struck in the rear by a six-wheel box truck. The collision caused the vehicle to burst into flames, causing severe burn injuries. The client was survived by his wife of twelve years and their three children.
