$3.5 Million Settlement for Family of Girl Killed in Fire Started by Utility Lighter

Corboy & Demetrio obtained a $3.5 million settlement in a product liability and medical malpractice case on behalf of the family of a young girl who died as a result of a fire started in her home with an Aim N Flame utility lighter. 

On March 31, 1998, a 3-year-old girl was in a bunk bed with her twin sister when one of them ignited an Aim N Flame utility lighter not equipped with a child resistant mechanism and started the bedding on fire.

In the medical malpractice case against Loyola University Medical Center, the plaintiffs contended that the girl died as a result of a cardiac arrhythmia after she was given an overdose of potassium chloride.
