$5.4 Million Settlement for Family of Burn Fatality

October 20th, 2011 by Wapner Newman

Burn injury lawyer in Philadelphia, Steven Wigrizer, a partner with the law firm of Wapner, Newman, Wigrizer & Brecher, 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. Mr. Wigrizer’s client was survived by his wife of twelve years and their three children.
