If you have sustained burns in an accident caused by negligence, it is essential to understand the crucial steps you need to take to seek justice.

From automobile collisions to workplace incidents, accidents can occur at any time, with severity ranging from first-degree burns, affecting only the skin’s surface, to third-degree burns, penetrating deeper tissues and potentially causing lifelong scars.

Accidents That Lead to Burn Injuries 

Burn injuries can result from a wide array of accidents, each presenting unique challenges in terms of seeking damages and navigating the legal process. The following are the most common types of accidents that lead to burn injury claims: 

  • Automobile Accidents: Car collisions are a leading cause of burn injuries due to fires ignited upon impact, exposing occupants to severe risks of burns. These accidents can occur when vehicles collide, causing fuel systems to rupture and catch fire​​.
  • Domestic Fires: Incidents at home, such as kitchen fires or electrical mishaps, can lead to significant burn injuries. These accidents can swiftly escalate, causing widespread damage and personal injuries​​.
  • Workplace Accidents: Industrial and construction sites are particularly prone to fire hazards that can lead to burn injuries. This includes accidents involving flammable materials, explosions, or electrical equipment​​.
  • Wildfires: In areas prone to wildfires, such as Orange County and surrounding California cities, individuals suffer burn injuries not only directly from the flames but also from the proximity to intense heat and fire-related incidents​​.
  • Electrical Accidents: Burns can also result from exposure to high-voltage electricity in both workplace settings and from everyday household appliances malfunctioning or being improperly handled​​.
  • Chemical Burns: Exposure to corrosive substances, whether in industrial settings or due to household chemical accidents, can lead to severe chemical burns, requiring immediate medical attention​​.
  • Premises Liability: Property owners who do not maintain safe environments or warn of hazards may be liable for burns resulting from fires on their property, whether from structural issues or neglecting proper safety protocols​​.
  • Defective Products: Consumer products with design flaws, manufacturing defects, or inadequate warnings can lead to fires or expose users to burn risks. Product liability claims arise when these defects result in injury​​.

Burn injury victims must seek legal counsel from the lawyers at Callahan & Blaine to ensure their legal rights are protected during the burn injury claims process.
