hold on a minute, ivid, if you look at my previous post i said that kids are resilliant, but also said that they deserved to be sued over the injury.
the burn is not going to scar, as it is a second degree burn, so will be two layers of skin blistered, but the skin is unlikely to be broken, hence no scarring!
mental distress for the rest of his life? no one knows till later in the day, so shouldn't be a matter for the courts......yet! physically injured? too right, go sue them!
