tilton vs union oil

"Facts. The plaintiff was an employee of Compton Toilet Partitions, Inc.
(Compton). On October 9, 1991, the plaintiff was assigned by Scott
Braley, the proprietor of Compton, to remove the lids from empty
fifty-five gallon drums that were scattered all over the property. The
plaintiff was seriously injured when he attempted to remove a lid from
an unmarked drum containing a small amount of the chemical solvent
toluene with an acetylene torch, which caused the drum to explode. After
the jury found the defendant negligent in answers to special questions
and assessed damages against the defendant in the amount of $1,750,000,
the trial judge entered a judgment for the plaintiff."
