Phoenix Burn Injury Attorneys

What Are Common Causes of Burn Injury Accidents?

Individuals often suffer serious burn injuries when they are trapped in a home or building that caught fire.

The most common causes of burn injuries include:

  • Open flames / fire
  • Scalding hot steam, water or  beverages
  • Lit cigarettes, irons or coals
  • Defective electronic appliances or electric wires
  • Harmful chemicals or fumes
  • Fireworks
  • Radiation exposure
  • Lightning strikes

Depending on the severity of injuries – multiple surgeries and long-term medical care and therapy may be necessary for a full and healthy recovery.

The damages that a burn victim faces are not only physical, but psychological as well. Being burned to such a traumatizing degree takes an extreme toll on the victim’s self esteem and can potentially cause depression. The compensation you may receive could cover therapy and psychological care to help the victim as well as the victim’s family.

Fire Safety Concerns & Issues

Determining if there were any fire code and safety violations is an important step to prove what and/or who may have caused a fire. This includes whether or not fire exits were accessible and clearly marked, and if any required smoke detectors and sprinklers were in working condition at the time of the fire.

Other safety factors that may result in a fire include defective stove or other kitchen appliances, faulty lighting fixtures, and poor wiring. If someone was burned due to a faulty product or negligent act, they may be able to hold the manufacturer or service provider “liable” for their injuries.
