Apartment building fires;
Scalding pipes and water;
Locked fire exits;
Electrical cord fires;
Motor vehicle accidents;
Tanker explosions and truck accidents;
Recreational fires (in spaces such as nightclubs, retail outlets, restaurants, and hotels)
There are just a few examples of fire and burn injury claims. Burns may be caused anywhere that a hot or flammable object is present.
Burn Injuries Sustained on the Job
Employees in some workplace settings are vulnerable to burn and fire injuries. The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration reports that explosions and fires alone cause around 5,000 workplace burn injuries per year.
Whenever a burn injury is suffered by an employee at work, they might be eligible to file a workers’ compensation claim to obtain wage-replacement benefits. The employee, in exchange for getting those benefits, forfeits the right to sue the employer for negligence. since insurance companies will attempt to either entirely deny benefits or limit payouts, workers who sustained a burn injury at work should immediately talk to a lawyer to discuss their legal options and rights.
Workers’ compensation benefits do not provide payment for disfigurement, loss of consortium, loss of the enjoyment of life, or pain and suffering. However, those damages might be available for those injury victims pursuing “third-party” claims.
In those situations, the employee files a suit against the third-party, like a product manufacturer or subcontractor, to seek damages that might supplement the workers’ compensation benefits of the employee. Our burn injury attorneys handle both third- party claims and workers’ compensation that stem from numerous accidents, which include chemical exposure, construction site accidents, chemical plant explosions, and refinery fires.
Although first-degree burns may heal fairly fast, second, third, or fourth-degree burns may cause disfigurement and severe injury.
