Common Causes of Burn Injuries

Burn injuries can be caused by a wide variety of hazards. The underlying cause of your burn injury is what we’ll try to identify during a case investigation. We’re interested in discovering who or what is responsible for the proximate cause of your burns. In other words, whose negligence caused your burn injuries?

Common burn injury cases we have handled involved:

  • defective products
  • fireworks
  • explosions
  • fires
  • electrical equipment
  • steam
  • harsh chemicals
  • radiation

Classifications of Burn Injuries

Burns can vary in severity, from minor burns to those that cause permanent scarring and pain that may last years.

The three burn types are as follows:

  • First degree. A first-degree burn only affects the uppermost layer of the skin, or the epidermis. First-degree burns don’t blister or scar and may not need medical attention unless they cover a large area of the body (or vulnerable areas, such as the face).
  • Second degree. A second-degree burn affects the epidermis and the second layer of the skin, or dermis. Second-degree burns may cause blisters and swelling, as well as permanent scarring. Second-degree burns require medical care to prevent infection.
  • Third degree. Third-degree burns affect the lowest layer of skin, the fatty layer, muscles, or other tissues beneath the skin. They often cause the skin to appear leathery and may not hurt due to nerve damage. Third-degree burns require emergency medical attention.

Burn injuries that are severe often qualify as serious enough to give rise to a personal injury claim. Our law firm may be able to help you obtain compensation for your injury from a negligent party in Miami.

Who Is Liable for a Burn Injury?

The party liable, or financially responsible, for your burn injury will be the one most at fault for causing the incident. Depending on the circumstances, this could be another driver, your employer, a product manufacturer, a coworker, another party, or a combination of parties. Many cases involve more than one defendant, equally and severally liable for your damages. Identifying the liable party often requires help from an attorney.

Why You Need a Lawyer

A lawyer can help you fight for the compensation you deserve for serious, permanent, and disabling burn injuries. Instead of going up against an insurance company on your own, your lawyer can fight your battles for you – using in-depth knowledge of the law and first-hand experience. Finding the right law firm to represent your Miami burn injury claim is key.
