Common Causes of Burn Injuries

Figuring out the exact cause of your burn injury is a crucial step in your claim. With convincing evidence, we can show clearly what happened and how the defendant should be held liable for it. Our attorneys can work with outside experts to get and utilize that evidence, too, such as a product engineer if a defective product caused your burn. We do not cut corners when it comes to making sure our clients’ catastrophic injury cases are set up for success.

Burn injury causes can include:

  • Flames
  • Heated surfaces
  • Defective electrical sources
  • Hazardous substances

For example, many burn injury cases in recent years have been directly related to unsafe products. From poorly made hoverboards to defective e-cigarettes, dangerous products that cause burns can be answered with a burn injury or product liability claim against the product manufacturer.

Burn Injury Severity Ratings

Not all burn injuries are the same, of course. Not all burns are even considered severe from a medical standpoint, either. Burn injuries are sorted by severity using a degree-based scale. The higher the degree, the worse the burn. In turn, the worse the burn, the more compensation that will likely be owed to the plaintiff.

Burn injury severity ratings include:

  • First-degree: A first-degree burn is minor and does not require medical attention in nearly all cases. Basic first aid at home should be able to treat the injury readily.
  • Second-degree: A second-degree burn is moderate and should be treated as soon as possible. It can become infected or heal incorrectly without urgent medical care.
  • Third-degree: A third-degree burn is severe and requires emergency medical attention. It is life-threatening in most situations. Surgery and lengthy hospitalization will most likely be required.
  • Fourth-degree or worse: Burns that are rated fourth-degree or worse are usually too catastrophic to be survivable. A wrongful death claim might follow rather than a burn injury claim.

What Damages Could Be Recovered in a Burn Injury Claim?

Potential damages may include:

  • Medical Expenses: Burn injuries often need extensive medical treatment, including surgeries, skin grafts, rehabilitation, and ongoing care. We work tirelessly to ensure you receive compensation for all past, present, and future medical costs related to your burn injury.
  • Lost Income and Future Earnings: Burn injuries can lead to prolonged recovery periods, preventing individuals from returning to work. We will pursue compensation for lost and potential future earnings, considering the impact of the injury on your ability to work and provide for your family.
  • Pain and Suffering: Beyond the physical and financial consequences, burn injuries can cause immense pain and suffering. We are committed to valuing and seeking compensation for the emotional distress, mental anguish, and diminished quality of life experienced by burn injury victims.
  • Rehabilitation and Therapy Costs: Recovering from a burn injury often involves extensive rehabilitation and therapy. We will work diligently to secure compensation for the costs connected with physical therapy, occupational therapy, and other forms of rehabilitation needed to regain functionality and independence.
  • Scarring and Disfigurement: Burn injuries frequently result in visible scars and disfigurement, impacting both physical appearance and mental well-being. We understand the profound impact of these changes and will seek compensation for the physical and emotional toll caused by scarring and disfigurement.
  • Punitive Damages: In extreme negligence or intentional harm, punitive damages may be pursued. We will assess the circumstances surrounding your burn injury and, if applicable, advocate for punitive damages to hold the responsible party accountable and prevent similar behavior.
