An Illinois jury has awarded the family of a 26-year-old man $6.74 million in a lawsuit against Archer Daniels Midland Co. Francisco Moreno Garcia died at one of the agribusiness company’s plants in 2007. He worked for ECF Inc. of St. Louis and was insulating pipes at one of Decatur-based ADM’s facilities when a nearby machine malfunctioned and sprayed him with steam and hot liquid. The man had burns over almost 90% of his body. He was so badly burned that his skin was peeling off in strips at the scene. Donald Shapiro, a Chicago lawyer, represented the family and did a very good job in the case.
