Burn Injury Causes

Burn injuries can be caused by a variety of sources. Identifying the source and if it was caused by someone else's negligence is the first step in identifying if you have a case.

Defective Products

Many burn injuries are the result of defective products. From construction defects to cases involving stove top and oven defects to cases involving defective water heaters and furnaces, we know the importance of building a strong case to prove the manufacturer's negligence.

Manufacturers are willing to fight when their reputation is at stake. We are willing to fight back, with facts, to see that you get all the compensation you need.

Fires and Explosions

Burn injuries can also result from fires and explosions caused by negligence. Accidental fires in the home, workplace, or public setting can be the fault of careless individuals or a negligent property owner. In addition, those responsible for maintaining machinery and equipment may be liable when their neglect results in an explosion that causes burn injuries.

Our experienced personal injury attorneys know how to prove negligence and get the maximum compensation you deserve.

Medical Negligence

Burn injuries can also be caused by medical negligence. For example, a burn injury may result from a medical professional's failure to properly monitor a patient who has been undergoing radiation or chemotherapy treatments, or who has been sedated for surgery or other medical procedures. Burns can also be caused by improper use of medical devices during treatment.

We are committed to fighting for the full compensation necessary to help you recover from your burn injury. We understand that medical expenses can quickly mount up and our lawyers have the experience and knowledge needed to make sure you get the maximum recovery possible.

What Type of Negligence Caused Your Burn Injury?

In many cases, determining who was at fault for a burn injury is no simple matter. What may look like a defective product case on the surface may turn into something different altogether. Our experience allows us to determine who was at fault and take action. We will take action against manufacturers, property owners, and any other party that caused a burn injury. Determining liability in burn injury cases involves identifying the responsible party or parties whose actions or negligence led to the burn injuries. It often requires a thorough investigation and understanding of the circumstances surrounding the incident.

  • Negligence and Breach of Duty: We'll assess whether the responsible party owed a duty of care to the victim. For instance, employers have a duty to provide a safe work environment. We'll also look at if the responsible party breached their duty of care, such as failing to maintain safety standards or ignoring potential hazards that led to the burn injury.
  • Multiple Liable Parties: In some cases, multiple parties may share liability, including property owners, manufacturers of defective products, contractors, or individuals involved in the incident.
  • Employer Responsibility: In workplace-related burn injuries, employers may be held liable for inadequate safety protocols, lack of training, or failure to provide protective equipment.
  • Defective Products: When burn injuries result from defective products like malfunctioning appliances or hazardous materials, manufacturers or distributors may bear liability under product liability laws.
  • Premises Liability: In cases of burn injuries occurring on another person's property, determining if the property owner maintained a safe environment and addressed potential hazards.

Determining liability in burn injury cases demands a comprehensive understanding of legal principles and thorough investigative efforts. Our firm is committed to conducting detailed assessments and advocating for burn injury victims' rights by holding responsible parties accountable for their negligence.
