The Cause of Most Burn Injuries Is Negligence
When a person or entity does not fulfill his/her/its duties to others, innocent people suffer. Burn injuries can be some of the most devastating consequences of negligence. The most common circumstances surrounding bad burns are auto accidents, fires, explosions, and defective products. In all these scenarios, there could be one or more negligent parties at fault.
“Negligence” means someone failed to take proper or reasonable care doing something, resulting in injury or damage to another person. To secure financial recovery for your burn injury, you will most likely need to prove the defendant’s negligence. This takes showing that the defendant owed you a duty of care, breached this duty, and caused your burns.
Could Our Burn Lawyers Help?
After suffering burns in an accident that you believe was another’s fault, it’s important to consult with an attorney. This is especially true if your burns happened at work or while performing a work-related task, such as driving a delivery vehicle. Before you file a workers’ compensation claim, talk to Cruz & Associates about the possibility of filing a lawsuit. A lawsuit against your employer could result in more fair compensation, and you lose the right to file if you accept a workers’ compensation settlement.
If someone other than your employer was at fault for causing your burns, you might be able to secure compensation through both the civil justice system and the workers’ compensation program. Our Phoenix burn injury attorneys can help navigate this difficult legal path. Whether you sustained thermal, electrical, chemical, or radiation burns, another’s incompetence or disregard shouldn’t cost you financial suffering as well as physical and emotional suffering. If your burns are “catastrophic,” meaning they caused permanent disability or disfigurement, your life is likely changed; a personal injury lawsuit can help explore whether the negligent party helps you adapt to this new and more challenging life.
