Burn injuries from fires can cause severe injuries and emotional trauma that make it difficult, if not impossible, for a victim to return to work and enjoy life. The physical scars caused by burn injuries can be painful and cause lost wages, medical bills, and extreme pain and suffering. The trauma caused by a fire can life-changing for both the victim and their family, especially when it is due to the negligence of a third-party. When landlords, property owners, site managers, and others are responsible for your burn injuries, you deserve the best legal representation. At Nation Lawyers, we will fight to bring you the compensation you deserve for your injuries.

 

When Is A Burn Injury Caused By Negligence?

When you or a loved one suffer a fire or burn injury, it can affect your life in a myriad of unknown ways. Negligent parties responsible for your injuries or the death of your loved ones deserve to be held accountable. But what constitutes a burn injury caused by negligence? Fire and burn injuries can occur in many situations, including:

 

  • At Work
  • In an Apartment
  • Commercial Vehicle Accidents and Explosions
  • Electrical Fires
  • Defective Products
  • Broken Radiators
  • Hot Water Heaters
  • At Public Events (Concerts, Nightclubs, Restaurants)

 

If you suffered a fire or burn injury that has caused you permanent damage, leaving you unable to work, you need an attorney who will fight for you. Contact the attorneys at Nation Lawyers today, and we will work with you to bring you the compensation that you deserve.

 

Who Is Responsible For My Burn Injuries?

 

When a fire occurs, that is not your fault, and the negligence of a third-party causes it, chances are you may be eligible to claim damages. Unfortunately, insurance companies and other entities will often do everything in their power to avoid paying what they owe when this happens. But when you file a claim against someone for negligence, there are many ways that you can prove your case.

 

  • Did the building have proper smoke detectors? If a building is not equipped with smoke detectors, or the smoke detectors are not up to code, this is a clear sign of negligence. Smoke detectors are required to be installed in every room.

 

  • Did the building or structure have other required safety features? In many cases, a building or structure is required to have fire extinguishers or other fire protection features as deemed necessary by the building code. If these were not installed properly, or not checked correctly, you could sue for damages.

 

  • Were the fire safety products defective? If any of the necessary fire safety products were faulty or in poor working condition, such as fire extinguishers or sprinkler systems, you have the right to sue the property owners for negligence.

 

  • Did the injury occur at work? If the injury occurred in the workplace, you may not only have a right to sue for negligence, if there was any, but you may also be able to file a worker’s compensation claim.

 

  • Did the owners know about faulty wiring or any other fire hazards? If the property owners were aware that fire hazards existed but did nothing to remedy the problem before you were injured, you might have a case for negligence.
