An 18-month-old baby was scalded on over 80 percent of her body, including virtually her entire lower torso.
She slipped into a bathtub, which had water in it, that was much hotter than indicated or anticipated by the end users.
Attorney Jaffe, using a team of experts including a plumber, a professional engineer and a national plumbing design expert, brought a negligence and products liability suit against several parties. He ultimately obtained a substantial recovery for the injured baby through mediation, which provided her with an initial lump sum payment and an additional lifetime annuity which covered all future medical expenses and more.
