Fort Lauderdale lawyers from Kelley Uustal, John Uustal, Michael Hersh and Catherine Darlson have settled a pressure cooker explosion case after a 3 year-old suffered devastating burns. The suit was filed back in 2015 when the Gonzalez family was cooking chicken soup inside the cooker. The complaint states the pressure cooker malfunctioned, spraying hot liquid all over the young girl. She suffered second and three-degree burns covering a large portion of her body. Doctors had to amputate her leg, her hand and all fingers. The company who manufactured the product, Lifetime Brands, claimed the family had misused the product. After a three year battle, Kelley/Uustal lawyers settled the claim for $27 Million. You can read the full article below, originally reported by the Daily Business Review.
