Disabled burn victim awarded $12M settlement

Due to injuries to her brother, Kelly Kosinski was awarded $12 million, one of the largest in the state. Her brother, James Kosinski, who has cerebral palsy and autism, was irreversibly injured in January 2009 when he was placed in scalding water. His family will use the money for his continuing care, currently costing about $210,000 a year. They hope also to build him a home and provide him with private care.
