$100,000 policy limit-Settlement

Hot water splashed in the face of a child as a prank. Minor scarring and mental anguish. 

During a New Year's Eve party, the parents of a young boy hosted a sleepover. During the night, the boys decided to pull a prank on one of their friends and threw hot water in his face while he was sleeping. The boys then applied a bag of ice directly to the burns, causing further burning to the skin from the ice. 

Our young patient suffered emotional trauma, PTSD, and minor scarring to his face. His guardian ad litem settled for the homeowner insurance policy limit of $100,000.00.
