COMMON CAUSES OF BURN INJURIES

Our legal team handles burn injury cases from a variety of causes. There are a wide range of ways that burns can occur. Here are some of the common causes of burn injuries:

  • Vehicle fires
  • House fires
  • Electrocution
  • Chemical spills
  • Errors during construction projects
  • Malfunctioning household appliances
  • Fireworks
  • Not following OSHA requirements, industrial equipment failures
  • Defective products
  • Poorly marked fire experts
  • Not following safety protocols
  • Radiation
  • Artificial light
  • Cooking
  • Steam
  • Buildings in disrepair; vehicles and boats kept in poor repair
  • Space heaters that malfunction

The critical thing for determining whether you have a legal claim is how the burn occurred and who is responsible for it. Any cause of a burn injury may be the basis of a legal negligence claim.

To prove a burn injury lawsuit, you demonstrate each element of negligence. Here are the elements of negligence:

  1. Another party was negligent  – Acting negligently means not using enough care. A person must use a reasonable amount of care for any given situation. That means at least up to the minimum based on an ordinary, reasonable person. If another party was negligent, you may have a legal claim.
  2. The other party had a duty of care towards the victim – The person or organization that acts negligently must have had a legal duty of care. There are all kinds of ways that duties exist in society. A business has a duty of care towards their customers. Drivers have a duty toward others on the roads. There are many ways that the defendant may have a legal duty to the victim.
  3. The negligence is the cause of the burn – The victim must show the defendant’s negligence caused the burn. The accident must be the cause of the victim’s injuries. Medical testimony may be used in order to establish causation.

Injuries occurred that require treatment; other damages – When bringing a burn injury case, the victim must show what damages they have. There must be thorough documentation of medical injuries and the expenses associated with treating them. The victim must thoroughly document all of their losses including pain and suffering.

Your burn injury case is worth the sum total of your damages. Here are the kinds of damages that may apply:

  • Emergency medical treatment
  • Long-term medical treatment
  • Surgical expenses
  • Diagnostic testing like x-rays, blood work and scans
  • Dressings and bandages
  • Physical therapy
  • Mental distress; mental health care
  • Lost work; disrupted career path
  • Value of damaged property
  • Emotional distress
  • Nursing and home care as needed
  • Other economic and non-economic losses

There are other factors that may impact the amount of compensation available for a burn injury. If there are questions about legal fault, that may impact the amount of the claim. In addition, if the claim is a workers compensation claim rather than a traditional negligence claim, that can change the categories of damages that may be available. The best way to know what your burn injury case is worth is to have a personalized review from our team of Englewood burn injury attorneys.

Yes, you may be able to claim compensation for a burn injury at work. In fact, workers compensation and a third-party negligence claim may both be available to you. Most, but not all, work-related burn injury claims are covered by workers compensation.

If you think about it, most workers interact with a number of other parties and entities other than their employer during the course of a single work day. Any of these parties that act negligently may be legally liable for a traditional negligence claim. Let our attorneys for burn injuries in Englewood help you understand how you can claim compensation for a burn injury at work.
