WAYNE– A Wayne County woman is suing a Tennessee corporation for burns to an infant child caused after he used an Icy Hot patch to relieve pain.
Teresa Hill, as guardian of Patrick Ball, filed suit Aug. 7 in Wayne Circuit Court against Chattem Inc.
Hill, who lives in Dunlow, claims infant Patrick Ball was attempting to use an Icy Hot patch on Sept. 7, 2007, in Dunlow to relieve his pain.
As a result, Ball sustained burns, according to the complaint.
Chattem, which manufactures Icy Hot, should have known its product was unreasonably dangerous, the suit states. In addition, it failed to warn Ball of the risks of serious injury and failed to provide appropriate instructions in its product, the complaint says.
As a result, Ball was disfigured; suffered pain, sorrow, mental anguish, solace, loss of society, companionship, comfort and guidance; lost services, protection, care and assistance; will lose income; and will incur medical costs, Hill claims.
In the three-count suit, Hill is seeking compensatory damages, plus costs and other relief the court deems just.
Marvin W. Masters and Charles M. Love of The Masters Law Firm in Charleston will be representing Hill.
The case has been assigned to Wayne Circuit Judge Darrell Pratt.
