Severe burns are not only horribly painful injuries but also disfiguring, often leading to severe physical and emotional trauma. When 25% or more of the body sustains burns, doctors consider the injuries severe.

Burns are always excruciating and traumatic, but when the injuries were preventable and caused by someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing, the victim may also feel a justifiable outrage.

If you or a loved one experienced painful, disfiguring, or severe burns because of the actions of another party, that person or business entity is responsible for compensating you for damages.

Severe burn injuries require expensive medical treatment, hospitalization, and sometimes extensive surgeries, including skin grafts and corrective plastic surgery. Expenses add up fast. A Kent burn injury attorney can help you maximize the compensation you recover from the liable party.

Common Causes of Burn Injuries in Washington

An estimated 7 to 12 million people experience burn injuries requiring medical care each year, some leading to prolonged periods of work absences and even death. Burn injuries occur in many ways, but when someone else is responsible, you shouldn’t be left holding the bag for damages while dealing with painful injuries. Common burn injury claims in Washington happen due to the following:

  • Car accidents
  • Gas tanker truck explosions
  • Electrical fires
  • Structural fires in apartments, hotels, or the workplace
  • Malfunctioning work equipment or chemical explosions in the workplace
  • Propane explosions
  • Gas leaks
  • Defective products
  • Water or steam scalding injuries

Depending on the circumstances of the burn injury, liable parties could include an at-fault driver, a product manufacturer, an employer, a business owner, a gas company, or any party who caused the accident through negligence, recklessness, or intentional wrongdoing.

Proving Liability In Burn Injuries

An experienced Kent burn injury attorney from the Kent law office of Caffee Accident & Injury Lawyers will investigate all aspects of your injury to identify the part at fault and prove liability. Proving liability under Washington’s at-fault insurance laws requires demonstrating the following points:

  • That the party at fault owed a duty of reasonable care to prevent injuries, such as a tanker-truck driver’s duty to avoid distraction or a gas company’s duty to ensure safe, reliable equipment
  • That the party at fault breached their duty of care through an act of negligence
  • That the negligent breach directly caused the burn injury
  • That you’ve experienced significant damages from the injury 

Once your Kent personal injury attorney proves liability, they can present a compelling case to the appropriate insurance company, such as an apartment building owner’s property insurance, or a driver’s car insurance to obtain a settlement for damages. If they can’t reach an ample settlement, your attorney from Caffee Accident & Injury Lawyers is more than prepared to argue the matter through a lawsuit in court.
