Woman Burned in Fire Paid $1 Million

Cheryl Curry, a 22-year-old housewife, was in her apartment when two Molotov cocktails were hurled from the street below by an unknown criminal. She was able to throw her babies out the window to safety, but then found herself trapped in the living room of her second floor apartment when she could not find the key to the door or escape through the barred windows.

Biren Law Group developed evidence that Ms. Curry was not burned as a result of the original fire bombing, but rather because she was unable to escape from the spreading fire. Our team was able to prove that the reason she could not escape was because of building code violations, including an illegal double-keyed deadbolt lock on the apartment door and non-release security bars over the windows.

The plaintiff received second and third degree burns over 26% of her body, resulting in scarring and disfigurement. The case settled for the landlord's policy limits.
