High School Student Burned In Metal Shop

Our California government liability team, working with our burn injury lawyers, represented a Napa Valley High School sophomore who sustained second- and third-degree burns over his arm, shoulder, and torso when his clothing caught fire during welding shop. We were able to prove that there was inadequate supervision at the time of the injury and that the school district failed to provide adequate protective fireproof clothing. The school district argued that the child failed to follow directions, as specified by his teacher.
