Philadelphia Student Burned by School Lunch

7-year-old Ja-Kaye Robinson sustained second-degree burns after opening a meal from his elementary school cafeteria only to be sprayed by the steam rising from it.

Robinson was subsequently treated at the Einstein Hospital emergency room, and is currently recovering, but now his parents have questions about how the incident happened in the first place. Though school officials brought Robinson to the principal’s office to be treated following the incident, they offered no substantial answers to the parents’ concerns about the temperature at which the school’s cafeteria food is served and where the school nurse was at the time he needed treatment.

School officials claim to be investigating this incident.

If you or your child was the victim of negligent behavior on the part of another individual, you could be entitled to compensation. The injuries Robinson sustained could be due to carelessness on the part of the school, and his parents’ concerns are as valid as any whose child was harmed on school grounds.
