SETTLEMENT REACHED IN DEATH DUE TO FAULTY STOVE INSTALLATION
Mary Dean Hodges, as Administratrix of the Estate of Dylan Blake Barnhill v. Baber’s Inc., et al. | Escambia County Circuit Court | CV-2010-900008
In 2014, Cunningham Bounds’ attorneys reached a confidential settlement in this wrongful death case arising out of the death of a five-year-old child. Plaintiff alleged that a new stove rented from the defendant’s rent-to-own business had been improperly installed, resulting in damage to the stove cord, electrical arcing and fire which consumed the house.
