Severely Burned Mother and Children File Lawsuit in Lincoln Park Housing Fire

Posted: Updated:

Two have been named in the complaint that alleges negligence as the cause of severe burns suffered in a January 2013 Lincoln Park development explosion.

Huntsville, AL, United States – August 14, 2014 /MarketersMedia/ –

On July 18, 2014, a lawsuit was filed by Birmingham-based law firm Glenda Cochran Associates on behalf of a Huntsville mother and her two children for serious injuries sustained in the January 15, 2013 Lincoln Park housing development fire. The complaint names Huntsville Utilities and the Huntsville Housing Authority as defendants, and alleges that the natural gas leak which caused the explosion was the result of their negligence.

Cheri Kent and her two children, ages 5 and 7, were sleeping at the time of the explosion. They escaped the blaze with the help of neighbors. Ms. Kent suffered severe burns over more than 50 percent of her body, and was initially taken to Huntsville Hospital before being transferred to University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) Burn Center. The children also suffered burn injuries, and were treated at Children’s Hospital Burn Center.

Lincoln Park is located about a mile north of downtown Huntsville on Washington Street.

Glenda Cochran Associates represents victims who have been seriously hurt by negligence in cases ranging from dangerous or defective product injuries to medical malpractice.
