Burn Injuries: Causation, Compensation

What Causes burn Injuries?

Burn injuries are the result of a wide variety of accidents, including:

  • Car accidents/auto fires
  • Defective household products
  • Hot liquid spills
  • Explosions, including at construction sites and industrial settings
  • Electrical mishaps, especially from defective products

If someone else's negligence causes your burn injury, you may be able to recover compensation. The type of lawsuit you bring will depend on the cause. If, for example, you were burned by hot liquid from a hotel faucet, the hotel may be held accountable through a premises liability lawsuit. If your car started on fire, you may be able to bring auto defect litigation against the auto manufacturer.

How Much Money Can I Recover For My Burn Injury?

Like any personal injury, premises liability or product defect case, it is impossible to determine exactly how much money a person will recover after an accident causes a serious burn injury. A number of factors will play a role in your case for compensation, from how the accident occurred to the extent of your injuries and the attorney you hire.

An experienced lawyer can help you evaluate all of the financial damages you have suffered and will suffer as a result of your accident, including:

  • Past medical bills
  • Future medical bills, including rehabilitation costs
  • Living assistance expenses (such as the cost for a personal care assistant)
  • Loss of income
  • The cost of additional life insurance premiums

You may also be able to recover compensation for your emotional damages/emotional distress.
