In a lawsuit in Camden County, Nugent Law clients recently settled their claims against a defendant for a total of $850,000.00. The lawsuit arose out of a gas leak at their home resulting in a fire and explosion. The fire and explosion happened late at night, when the clients, a husband, wife and two daughters, woke up to an explosion, their home engulfed in flames, and crumbling around them. They safely made it out of the home without physical injury, but suffered serious psychological injuries, including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and other mention and emotional injuries. The family was represented by Charles H. Nugent, Jr., Esquire
