The Most Common Causes of Burn Injuries
It can be helpful to know the common causes of burn injuries that lead to personal injury claims so you can receive the support and compensation you deserve.
Fires and Explosions
Fires and explosions are some of the most common causes of burns. These types of accidents can occur due to a variety of reasons, from faulty wiring in homes to explosions at chemical plants.
Another common cause of burn injuries is contact with hot objects. These types of burns are often caused by defective products or unsafe workplaces. For example, if a consumer product unexpectedly gets very hot while in use, it can cause a severe burn injury if it comes into contact with skin.
This can also happen when an employer fails to provide their workers with proper safety equipment. It is important for companies to take accountability when these types of accidents occur and make sure those affected get the help they need to recover from their injury.
Chemical burns are another type of burn injury that occurs when a person comes into contact with hazardous chemicals like bleach or industrial-grade cleaning supplies. It is important for employers to provide proper protective gear if their workplace contains any hazardous materials that may cause chemical burns; failure to do so could result in serious health consequences for employees.
Finally, electrical burns often occur when people come into contact with exposed wiring or live wires without taking proper safety precautions first. These types of burns can be particularly dangerous because they don't just affect the skin but can also affect internal organs and tissue beneath the skin's surface too; this makes them particularly difficult to diagnose and treat properly.
Determining Liability for Burn Injuries
If you’ve suffered a burn injury due to someone else’s negligence or intentional harm, you may be wondering who is liable for your damages. The answer depends on the specifics of your case, but here are some possible parties that could be held liable:
Car Accidents – The Other Driver
If your burn injuries were the result of a fire in a car accident that was caused by another driver’s negligence, that person would likely be held liable for your injuries to the extent that they are responsible for them.
Faulty Products – Manufacturer
Another potential source of liability involves defective products that cause a person to suffer from burns. If you have been burned due to an unsafe product, you could potentially sue the manufacturer for damages related to your injuries.
Product defects can include faulty wiring on appliances or toys, poorly manufactured lighters or matches, combustible materials used in furniture or clothing items, and other dangerous products that lack proper safety warnings or instructions on use.
Property Owner Liability
Lastly, if you are burned while visiting someone else’s property (private or commercial) due to hazardous conditions present there – such as broken lighting fixtures, exposed electrical outlets, or faulty wiring – you may be able to pursue legal action against them if they failed to identify and correct these issues before someone got hurt as a result.
Similarly, businesses are responsible for providing their customers with safe premises while they shop; if they fail in this regard then they could be held liable for any resulting burnt injuries suffered by shoppers while on their property.
