Many of us associate burn injuries with home fires. However, within the last decade in the United States, less than 47% of all burns were caused by fires. Most burn injuries are from thermal burns, or scalds, where the victim makes direct contact with fire, a heated object, or steam.
Other types of common burn injuries include:

Liability in a burn injury case is heavily dependent on the circumstances of the accident. Different accident causes can involve different parties and sometimes can involve multiple parties and multiple types of liability.
Vehicle fires are rare, but resulting burns from hot metal or fire after a crash can cause severe injuries. Additionally, when a victim is thrown from their vehicle, typically a motorcycle, they may suffer burns from road rash.
When you suffer a burn injury from a car crash or other vehicle accident, the driver or vehicle operator responsible is usually the one held liable for the crash. Sometimes multiple parties may be held accountable, such as if the accident was a multi-vehicle crash, or if the at-fault driver was intoxicated and driving another person’s car. Additionally, in the case of commercial trucking accidents, the trucking company may hold some liability for the accident.
Defective electronics and appliances can cause catastrophic burn injuries. A defective product may overheat, catch fire, or explode while in use. Additionally, an accident with a defective vehicle could result in a vehicle fire.
In the case of a burn injury caused by a defective or dangerous product, liability often falls to the product manufacturer. The retailer or wholesaler may also be held liable in certain cases, allowing you to file a product liability lawsuit against any or multiple of these parties.
A visitor to a property may be at risk for a burn injury if the landlord, business, or property owner refuses to rectify unsafe conditions. Property owners can disregard fire safety regulations by neglecting to install smoke alarms or not replacing fire extinguishers. In some cases, the arrangement of furniture or other large objects in the property may violate regulations, causing patrons to become trapped in the event of a fire.
Premises liability burn lawsuits can be pursued against property owners, landlords, businesses, and others responsible for the ownership and upkeep of the property.
You may want to know what compensation you can recover in a burn injury claim. Like any personal injury, burn injuries are highly varied and it is impossible to calculate the value of a claim without knowing the full details of your specific case. Compensation can depend on the cause of the accident, who was liable, and whether or not you as the victim share any fault.
One important aspect to consider in any burn injury case is the severity of the burn itself. Burn injuries are officially categorized as follows:
You can recover compensation for even first-degree burns in certain cases. However, if your burns were severe enough to require medical attention, you can receive substantial compensation.
Some damages you can be compensated for after your burn injury include:
Even if your burn injuries are obvious, insurance companies will do whatever they can to limit payouts to you. Insurance representatives may act like they’re on your side and tell you that you do not need to reach out to an attorney. You need to remember that insurance representatives have a vested interest in denying you the full compensation you are owed.
Do not accept any offer made by an insurance representative before you speak with an experienced burn injury attorney. Speak with Regan Zambri Long as soon as you can to learn how much your specific claim may be worth in a free consultation.
