Common Causes of Burn Injuries

According to the U.S. Center for Disease Control, burns and fires are the third leading cause of death in the home, and a fire-related injury occurs every 30 minutes in America. In addition to fire or flame exposure, common causes of burns include scalding from wet or moist heat, contact with a hot surface, electrical accidents, and chemical burns.

Burns occur most frequently at home and in the workplace, but an accident can happen anywhere. Third-degree burns are the most severe, affecting all layers of the skin and sometimes penetrating fat and muscle. Not only are third degree burns extremely painful, they can also lead to complications such as infection and breathing difficulty. Many patients lose their life to serious burns, and others face severe disfigurement and permanent loss of function.

Compensation in Burn Injury Cases

High-dollar damages have been secured in many burn injury cases, with some warranting multi-million dollar recoveries. In addition to compensation for medical care and loss of income, victims may be able to receive restitution for pain and suffering, emotional affects, and anticipated future costs. If it can be shown that the liable party acted with gross negligence or reckless disregard for others safety and this directly contributed to a burn injury or wrongful death, it may be possible to secure punitive damages. Punitive damaged are awarded on top of compensatory damages as a means of punishing the liable party. 

Florida is a 'pure comparative fault rule' state, which means a plaintiff can be awarded damages even if he or she is partially at fault for an accident.

Florida is a “pure comparative fault rule” state, which means a plaintiff can be awarded damages even if he or she is partially at fault for an accident. In burn injury cases, a large number of individuals and entities can be held liable for damages, including property owners, employers, equipment manufacturers, or maintenance service companies.
