Common Causes of Burn Injuries

Our team can help you fight for fair compensation when you or a loved one has suffered a burn injury caused by:

Regardless of how your injuries occurred, our team is here to represent you through the legal process and ensure your rights are protected every step of the way.

Who Is Liable for Burn Injuries?

Serious burn injuries can be catastrophic. Sadly, these injuries are often preventable. When someone else’s negligent or wrongful conduct causes an accident that leaves you or a loved one seriously injured, you have the right to take legal action and seek fair compensation for your injuries.

Often, burns are the result of someone else’s negligence. Maybe a property owner failed to conduct adequate property maintenance; maybe defective electrical wiring ignited a house fire that led to you suffering severe third-degree burns. Regardless of the specifics, if someone else was to blame for the fire or accident that caused your burn injuries, you can hold that person or party legally liable.

At Maloney Law Group, P.L.L.C., we handle burn cases that involve a variety of liability issues, such as:

  • Room capacity violations
  • Fire code violations
  • Lack of fire exit signage
  • Defective smoke detectors
  • Faulty wiring
  • Defective appliances
  • Property owner negligence

In many cases, if a fire injury could have been prevented through regulated safety measures, a building owner may be held accountable. In cases involving defective products, the manufacturer or distributor of the product in question could be held legally liable for your damages. At Maloney Law Group, P.L.L.C., we conduct exhaustive investigations to determine what happened and, most importantly, who is liable.

Damages in Burn Injury Cases

Severe burns cause both physical and psychological trauma. The recovery process is often long and challenging, with victims suffering extensive physical and emotional scarring. If someone else was to blame for your injuries, you deserve justice and fair financial compensation so that you can focus on getting the medical care you need without having to worry about the costs.

Depending on the unique circumstances of your case, you may be entitled to compensation for the following damages:

  • Emergency medical attention
  • Ambulance fees
  • Hospitalization
  • Skin grafting and other treatments
  • Ongoing and future medical care
  • Lost income/wages
  • Lost future earnings
  • Lost or reduced earning ability
  • Pain and suffering
  • Disfigurement
  • Emotional trauma and distress
  • Counseling services

At Maloney Law Group, P.L.L.C., we understand how critical it is that you are able to access high-quality medical care. We also know how challenging it can be when medical bills start piling up and day-to-day expenses begin mounting, all while you are out of work due to your injuries. With this in mind, we fight tirelessly in our efforts to recover the maximum compensation our clients are owed. Our goal is to help you get back on your feet so you can move forward with your life.
