Types of Accidents That Cause Burn Injuries

At Kuzmich Law Firm P.C., we have represented countless clients in burn injury cases across Frisco and surrounding areas. With our legal team by your side, you can fight for the compensation you deserve for burns in the following types of accidents: 

  • Workplace accidents: Burn injuries are common in workplaces with exposure to hazardous materials, chemicals, or machinery. Accidents in industries like manufacturing, construction, food service and laboratories can lead to chemical burns, thermal burns, or even electrical burns. 
  • Car accidents: Car collisions can lead to burn injuries in various ways, such as fuel leaks, engine fires, or airbags forcefully deploying. Collisions involving trucks carrying flammable materials can also result in explosions and burns. 
  • Scalding accidents: Hot liquids, steam, or other scalding substances can cause burns, especially to children. Accidents in kitchens, restaurants, or even bathrooms can lead to scalding injuries if proper precautions are not taken. 
  • Electrical accidents: Contact with exposed wiring, faulty electrical equipment, or high-voltage power sources can result in electrical burns.
  • Chemical exposures: Working with hazardous chemicals without proper protective gear can lead to chemical burns. Accidents involving spills, leaks, or inadequate ventilation can result in significant injuries. 
  • Defective products: Malfunctioning or defective products, such as electronics, appliances, or even clothing, can sometimes cause burn injuries due to electrical faults, overheating, and other issues. 

In cases where burn injuries occur due to the negligence of another party or entity, victims may pursue a personal injury claim for the damages suffered in the accident. Contact our professional legal team right away to understand your legal rights and options.

Proving Liability in a Burn Injury Accident Case

Burn injuries are life-altering. Depending on the severity of your injuries, your recovery process may be life-long. To ensure you obtain compensation for present and future damages, you must prove liability. Various parties may be liable for the incident. Our burn injury lawyers will collect essential evidence, such as images from the accident scene or witness statements, to identify who is responsible for your injuries and losses. 

Once the liable party has been identified, the next step is to prove their liability. To do so, your burn injury attorney will need to demonstrate four factors of negligence, which include the following:

  • The duty of care the liable party owed you
  • The breach of that duty of care
  • The causation of the subsequent burn injuries
  • The damages and losses you suffered

Following an accident, it is essential to take the time to heal. However, the personal injury claims process may be lengthy, so you must not delay seeking legal counsel. Begin filing your burn injury accident claim today with Kuzmich Law Firm, P.C.
