Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit After a Burn Injury

  • Burn injuries can be serious and your losses will likely be severe. For instance, you could suffer medical expenses, missed time from work, scarring, pain, and self-esteem issues. The more serious your burn injuries are, the greater your damages will likely be.

    You will need to win a personal injury claim in order to recoup your losses, though no amount of compensation could ever fully repay you for your injuries and suffering.

    Filing a Personal Injury Claim for a Burn Injury Accident

    When someone else’s negligence or carelessness caused the burn injuries you’ve sustained, you can hold them accountable. Here are a few examples of how someone else could have caused you to sustain a devastating burn injury:

    • Exposed electrical wiring at your workplace, or on another’s property, could have led to electrical burns.
    • Broken pipes due to poor maintenance could cause you to suffer steam burns.
    • House fires, caused by faulty wiring, could lead you to sustain serious injuries.
    • Vehicle crashes could cause serious burn injuries.

    All injuries caused by negligence could be grounds for filing an injury claim. Winning your claim will require investigation, evidence collection, and dealing with insurance companies. It’s advisable to work with an injury lawyer to see that you are compensated for your burn injury losses.

    Damages in a Burn Injury Case

    Your damages can add up quickly, and in some cases you might be dealing with permanent disability. The following are some examples of damages common in burn injury cases.

    • Pain and suffering
    • Lost wages
    • Scarring and disfigurement
    • Permanent disability
    • Mental trauma
    • Lost life enjoyment
    • Loss of self-esteem
