Woman Drank Lye Instead of Punch at Reception

$3 million Settlement

A couple attending a funeral reception at a church in Orange County came to our law firm with a chilling account of what happened to them after they drank a poisonous red liquid at the event. The wife was first in line at the punchbowl when she took a sip of the drink. Her throat and esophagus were badly burned when she swallowed the punch. The drink, however, was not a fruity red punch, but instead a red concentrated lye chemical used for cleaning.

It turned out that a church employee had mistakenly used a bottle of red lye instead of a bottle of fruit punch stored in the same cabinet. Our law firm sued the catering company and won a $3 million settlement for our injured client who after the incident was never the same.

"Sadly the woman's injuries were debilitating and she never fully recovered from this incident," said West Thomas, founder, The Thomas Law Firm. "When someone's negligence causes your injuries you need help from an attorney who has a history of winning cases for clients."
