We’re glad you’ve found our page today and invite you to read a bit more about how personal injury law can help burn victims.

Examples of Burn Injuries Caused by Negligence

To be clear, to have a personal injury claim, you must be able to prove that someone else was negligent. Consider the at-fault party. Did they owe you a duty of care? In other words, did they owe it to you to take reasonable precautions to keep you safe? If they did owe you that responsibility, failed, and you were injured as a result, you may have a case.

Since we’re discussing burn injuries, let’s consider some examples where negligence could be involved.

  • Car accidents. Drivers are obligated to mind the speed limit and abide by traffic safety laws. If they break these laws and cause a collision, they could be liable. Victims can suffer burn injuries in a car crash when they come in contact with a car’s engine, in explosions, or coming into contact with chemical spills.
  • Workplace accidents. Your employer should make sure that employees are properly trained on all equipment and any hazards should clearly be labeled as such. Employers shouldn’t ask employees to take unnecessary risks.
  • Dangerous products. There are several ways that a product can be dangerous. It can be defective by design, or a single product or batch may be affected. Products can also be damaged anywhere in the supply chain, from the manufacturer to the shopkeeper who sells it to you. Sometimes, a product (such as an oven or furnace) could be installed improperly and cause a burn.

No matter the cause, if you suspect someone else it to blame for your injury, make your next call the Ladenburg Law offices.

Burn Recovery is Extensive and Expensive

Burn injuries impact victims in many ways, some of which are long-lasting or even permanent. The American Burn Association reports that over 40,000 burn injuries result in hospitalizations every year.

Have you experienced any of these?

  • Hospitalization, including at a burn center
  • Painful treatments, such as skin grafts and wound care
  • Physical therapy
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Nerve damage
  • Emotional trauma
  • Change of work, lifestyle, and other activities

In addition to the expensive treatments, it goes without saying that burns are among the most painful injures that a victim can sustain. A settlement seeks to restore your financial situation as well as provide a sense of justice for all the wrongs you’ve endured.
