Water Heater Explosion Leads to $27M Settlement

The case involving the 2004 explosion of a water heater in Indiana has been settled for $27 million.

The explosion leveled an apartment that was attached to a Morgan County barn, killing one man and critically burning six of his family members.

A year after the incident, the family filed a products liability suit against the water heater company. The jury decided South Central Indiana Rural Electric Membership Corp., RushShelby Energy Rural Electric Cooperative and SCI Propane LLC were 65 percent liable for the accident.

If a dangerous product has resulted in the injury or death of you or a loved one, it is important to consult a legal expert. For more information on products liability visit McAleerLaw.com.
