Types of Burn Injury Lawsuits

Burn injuries almost always occur at random. Anybody can be in the wrong place at the wrong time, but it’s also likely that you were burned by an occurrence that could have been avoided. There are a few common causes of burn injuries for which you’d qualify for settlement.

Auto Accidents and Explosions

Car accidents often lead to serious burns, whether it’s from the heat of your vehicle or roadburn. Explosions from a car accident, or an altogether different setting, may also lead to serious burns. If an accident or explosion was caused by someone else’s actions, you should be entitled to damages for your burn injury.

Defective or Neglected Detectors and Alarms

Fires that cause burn injuries may occur from lack of appropriate detectors and alarms, especially for those living in a rental home or apartment complex. The same is true for offices or any work settings without the appropriate fire notification systems. If a landlord or other responsible party failed to ensure fire safety in the premises, you will likely be entitled to compensation.

Work Accidents

Depending on your line of work, burn injuries could be a likely, and even common, occurrence. Types of work accidents that could lead to burns include chemical spills, construction accidents, welding accidents and more. Your employer should always provide necessary protection and training for a variety of emergency scenarios. A burn injury sustained at work is highly likely to be due for compensation.

Electrical Fires & More

There are many possible causes of burn injuries. Electrical or structural fires can occur and cause harm, along with defective products like water heaters and furnaces. You could have also been injured by an act of arson or extremely hot liquid. Whatever the cause, working with the injury attorneys at Cruz & Associates will help you gather the details of your injury and make a case for fair settlement.
