Settlement Negotiated Over Defective Heater

Horton V. De'Longhi, Et Al. | Mobile County, Alabama Circuit Court | CASE NO. 2008-901543

In December 2011, the attorneys of Cunningham Bounds negotiated a confidential settlement in this case involving an oil-filled electric space heater manufactured by De'Longhi. The model heater involved was subject to an exceptionally inadequate recall effort nearly two decades ago - and was still being used by a young family. Their two-year-old daughter died as a result of a fire caused by the defective heater. While trying to rescue her, both parents were burned and injured by smoke.
