Hecht & Hecht has recently completed two cases involving children who were badly burned by hot water in their apartment buildings in The Bronx while they were being bathed. Both children required surgery and suffered extensive scarring. Our attorneys, along with an expert that we retained, carefully examined the hot water systems at both buildings to determine why the water was so hot. We also conducted detailed depositions of the workers at the buildings. As a result of our careful investigation, we were able to determine and prove that the hot water systems at these Bronx apartment buildings were not properly maintained. We recovered millions of dollars for the children.
