Larson v. Ecoflame – $5,375,000 Settlement
About the case
Jason Amala and his father, Oregon attorney Carl R. Amala of Harris Wyatt & Amala, LLC, represented Ms. Larson in a personal injury suit over an injury caused by an exploding gel fuel product, called Ecoflame. The “refillable,” “non-explosive” gel fuel product shot flaming gel out of the bottle as someone refilled an Ecoflame can, and Ms. Larson suffered second and third degree burns on approximately one-third of her body. Ms. Larson, a retired teacher of human development, hopes news of the settlement will prevent other people from being injured. Nine manufacturers of similar gel fuels have recalled their gel fuel products.
