Texas-based firm fights for family after bottle warmer causes toddler’s severe burns at Kidz Biz Preparatory
ST. LOUIS, Sept. 27, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Attorneys at Texas-based The Button Law Firm have joined forces with a St. Louis legal team to strengthen a family’s fight against a negligent daycare center after their 18-month-old son suffered severe burns from an unsecured bottle warmer. The complaint filed on Aug. 8 by Finney Injury Law states workers at Kidz Biz Preparatory left the toddler unsupervised around a bottle warmer, allowing him to be able to pull a hanging cord that resulted in scalding water extensively burning his arm.
This is the third daycare injury case in Missouri that the firm has been admitted to in the last month.

The case is Tiara Cornell, as next friend and mother of J.C., a minor child, vs. Kidz Biz, Inc., d/b/a Kidz Biz Preparatory, Case No. 23SL-CC03318, Circuit Court of St. Louis County, State of Missouri. More information about the case can be found in news coverage by FOX 2 Now and Riverfront Times.
