About Burn Injury Lawsuits

Burn Injury Lawyer

Burn injuries most commonly refer to an injury that’s caused by exposure to the skin, including exposure from:

  • Fire
  • Flame
  • Any Other High Heat Source

Additionally, abrasions can also be included in the burn injury category. When fast moving parts come in contact with the skin, that’s an abrasion. An example would be a rotor wheel. Furthermore, chemical burns are also included in the general burn injury category. These will include burn injuries caused by:

  • Lasers
  • Light
  • High-Frequency Technology (This Is Especially Common With an Eye Injury)

Who Can Be Held Liable

The negligence theory of law is what the majority of burn cases are based on. To be able to prove the negligence, it’s essential that a list of the elements have been proven. The elements of proof will include:

  • There Was a Standard Duty of Care Owed to the Plaintiff by the Defendant
  • This Standard Duty of Care Was Breached of the Defendant
  • The Proximate Cause of the Plaintiffs Injuries Were This Breach in the Standard Duty of Care

In a majority of cases, the liable party for the burn injury will be the same party that produced and/or manufactured the piece of equipment that is responsible for the burn injury. For example, a stove manufactured in a defective manner and causes a burn injury to the consumer, the liable party both manufactured and is liable for the burn injury.

It’s possible for other parties to be held liable for burn injuries dependent on the circumstances, these parties including:

  • Work Instructors, Supervisors and Trainers
  • Equipment Monitors
  • Product Distributors and Retailers
  • Health and Safety Inspectors

Legal Remedies

There are a variety of legal remedies that are available when you file a burn injury lawsuit, some of these including:

  • Payment of Court Costs and Other Fees
  • A Monetary Damage Award Which Will Reimburse Costs and Losses for the Plaintiff
  • An Injunction Which Will Require That the Defendant Enforce Better Standards in Production and/or Change Their Business Practices

There is no one burn injury lawsuit that’s exactly the same, therefore, the legal remedies available will vary with each individual lawsuit. Most commonly, the damages and remedies must be both proportionate and appropriate to the severity, as well as the nature, of the burn injury.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
