An electrical contractor who suffered burns in an explosion at a job site agreed to a $1.325 million settlement in his Middlesex County suit, Young v. Palin Enterprises, on June 19.

Michael Young was replacing a component on a fire suppression system at a warehouse in Lyndhurst on June 18, 2012, when he was suddenly engulfed in flames. Young suffered third-degree burns to 36 percent of his body, including his legs, arms, hands, face, neck and back. He suffered respiratory failure and kidney failure, according to the suit.
