Determining Liability for Burn Injuries

In order to get compensation for your burn injury claim, you will need to satisfy four elements of proof about your injuries.  Those elements are:

  • Duty of Care – Did the alleged negligent party have a duty of care to keep you safe from being injured?  For example, did the owner of a building have a duty of care to prevent you from coming into contact with exposed wires?
  • Breach of Duty of Care – Did the defendant breach the duty of care?  In our example, did the building owner not take the reasonable steps or actions to keep you safe from the exposed wires?
  • Proximate Cause – Was your burn injury a direct result of the breach of duty of care? In our example, were your burn injuries caused by the defendant’s negligence of breaching their duty of care and not protecting you from exposed wires?
  • Damages – Did you sustain damages as a result of the party’s negligence? In our example, did you sustain electrical burn injuries because of the exposed wires in the building?

If you and your lawyer determine that your case meets these four elements, you could be awarded compensation for the negligence of others.

Determining Damages For Burn Injury Claims

As stated above, In order to be compensated for your injuries, you must be able to prove that you were damaged by the negligence of another party or parties.  There are three types of damages you can claim:  economic, noneconomic, and punitive damages.

  • Economic damages are actual financial damages that happened because of the other party’s negligence.  Economic damages are easily quantified and include past and future medical bills, lost income, loss of future earning capacity, and other out-of-pocket expenses.  Economic damages are usually straightforward and not a source of contention.
  • Noneconomic damages are those that are not easily quantifiable, like pain and suffering, emotional anguish, loss of enjoyment in activities, or damage to one’s reputation.  In addition, spouses may be able to collect noneconomic damages.  This is called loss of consortium.  As you can tell, calculating noneconomic damages can cause disagreements between the parties because they are not as straightforward.
  • Punitive damages are those that are so bad as to be labeled egregious. There is a very high threshold in order to obtain punitive damages.  The two goals of punitive damages are to punish the defendant for their behavior and to prevent others from engaging in the same behavior.

Common Causes of Burn Injuries

There are many ways to sustain burn injuries.  If you come into contact with any hot surface, you risk the possibility of getting severe burns.  Some of the most common causes of burn injuries include:

  • House fires
  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Explosions
  • Contact with live wires
  • Contact with defective electronics
  • Contact with hazardous chemicals.

Your Warner Robins Burn Injury Lawyer Answers Your Frequently Asked Questions

Our attorneys understand that every case is different in its own way.  However, over the years in meeting with clients, we have heard many of the same general questions dealing with burn injury claims.  Here are some frequently asked questions we thought would be useful to prospective clients.

How long do I have to file a burn injury lawsuit in Georgia?

The deadline for filing a personal injury claim in Georgia is two years from the date of the injury.  However, we urge clients to speak with us as soon as possible after the accident, when information is fresh in your memory.

Will my burn injury claim settle, or will it go to trial?

Most burn injury claims will settle out of court with the insurance company or the negligent party.

How do I know if I have a relevant claim for my burn injuries?

Once you speak to our attorneys, we will let you know about the possibility of getting compensation for your claims.  We always recommend speaking to an attorney after any type of burn injury.

What should I do if an insurance company contacts me with a settlement offer?

Refer them to your attorney right away and don’t talk to them about the claim.  Insurance companies want to settle claims quickly and with as little payout as possible.

What happens if I get a burn injury at work?

Most likely, you will file a claim with the workers’ compensation board, but you should still speak with an attorney to make sure.
