A lawyer who represents a woman who was burned when she fell into a steam-conduit excavation site says she has settled her case for $1.2 million.
Andrew Levy represented 31-year-old Arianne Spaccarelli in her case against Baltimore, Trigen-Baltimore Energy Corp. and its subcontractors.
Spaccarelli was walking next to a chain-link construction fence on a rainy night in October 2005 when she fell into the pit at Guilford Avenue and Saratoga Street.
Her husband managed to pull her out, but she suffered second- and third-degree burns over 43 percent of her body from the steam conduit inside the pit.
The fence, secured with concrete blocks, had been pushed back by a hit-and-run driver and no longer enclosed the four- to five-foot hole.
