What Kinds of Burn Injury Claims Can You Help With?
Burn injuries can range in severity from minor to severe and can happen in a variety of circumstances. Burn injuries can be classified as thermal, chemical, electrical, or radiation burns, among others.
The depth and extent of tissue damage and the burn’s location on the body affect how severe a burn injury is.
The lawyer you choose will need to have a thorough knowledge of the many forms of burns, the problems they can cause, and the methods used to treat them. The California burn injury attorneys at our firm know the complications and effects of all types of burns.
Here are some of the most common types of burn cases we represent:
Contact with a heat source like fire, hot liquids, or steam causes thermal burns, the most frequent type of burn injury. There are several degrees of burns, from superficial ones causing redness and pain to more severe cases that can permanently damage the skin.
Electrical burns occur when the body comes in contact with an electrical current. These burns can be severe because the electrical current can damage internal organs and tissues.
These burns happen when the skin is exposed to corrosive substances, such as acids or alkalis. The chemicals can continue to damage the skin until they are neutralized. Chemical burns are sometimes seen when airbags are deployed.
When the skin is subjected to large doses of radiation, whether from the sun, X-rays, or radiation therapy, radiation burns develop. Because of the increased risk of cancer and other illnesses, these burns can be very serious.
Because we care about our clients, we can help to ensure that you receive the appropriate medical attention for your injuries. Patients with few medical treatment alternatives will have a better chance of receiving prompt, effective care for their injuries with our assistance.
If you need finances for living or personal costs, our firm can assist you in establishing contact with third-party lenders.

Negligence Is Often the Cause of Burn Injuries
Burn injuries can occur in a variety of situations, including workplace accidents, car accidents, and household accidents. For example, an employer may be responsible for a burn injury if they failed to provide adequate safety equipment or training to their employees.
Similarly, a property owner may be responsible for a burn injury if they failed to maintain their property in a safe condition or failed to warn visitors of potential hazards. A scalding burn, such as the burn experienced by the woman in the well-known McDonald’s hot coffee case, can also be caused by negligence. In that case, the restaurant was held liable for her injuries.
Fires and burn injuries can be due to negligence in the following situations:
- Locked fire exits
- Workplace injuries
- Truck accidents and tanker explosions
- Scalding water and pipes
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Electrical accidents
- Fires in public venues
- Apartment building fires
Burn injuries can have devastating effects on individuals and their families. If your accident should have been prevented, you have the legal right to pursue justice and compensation. A burn injury lawyer in California can help to determine if negligence can be proven in your case.

A burn victim’s injuries will never be repaired, but the losses you’ve incurred are still worthy of compensation. The injuries you sustained as a result of someone else’s carelessness or negligence shouldn’t be your responsibility.
