Burn Injuries

Fire and Burn Injury Attorneys

Get the Compensation You Deserve

Burn Injury Attorneys

Burns are some of the most severe and painful injuries that people
can suffer. These injuries could happen anywhere, including on the road,
at dangerous properties, and even in your own home. They can cause
scarring and disfigurement, lead to hazardous infections, and even
threaten your life.

When a person’s wrongful conduct injures someone else, the liable person may owe the burn victim compensation for their injuries. Beyond compensation for medical expenses, burn victims can pursue financial recovery for lost wages and other damages.

If you recently suffered a burn injury, and believe someone else is at fault, contact a Morgan & Cody trial attorney today. They will work closely with you to determine who is responsible for the accident. Then, they will aggressively fight for you in and out of court.

burn injuries

At McDonald & Cody we understand that catastrophic personal injuries can have truly devastating and life-altering results that can affect you for the rest of your life.  Some of the most common types of burn and fire injury lawsuits and claims against other parties include:

Fires, explosions, and other types of accidents that lead to burn injuries often happen on unreasonably dangerous properties, such as apartment buildings, hotels, rental homes, restaurants, nightclubs, and stores.

Depending on the type of workplace, on-the-job injuries can result from a range of dangerous situations, such as electrical accidents, explosions, office fires, and chemical exposure. Some types of situations that often cause these accidents include failure to provide proper protective equipment, lack of warning signs, poor equipment or building maintenance, worker fatigue, and improper training.

Car accidents, truck collisions, motorcycle crashes, boating incidents, and other types of motor vehicle accidents often leave victims with painful and life-threatening burn injuries. Some examples of circumstances that can lead to these injuries include when a tanker truck explodes in a traffic accident or when a car catches on fire.

Your auto insurance company will have a number to call to report the accident. You could also call your insurance agent who will ask certain questions and report the accident to your insurance company on your behalf.

It’s important to notify your car insurance company as soon as possible, regardless of who is at fault for the car accident. Your policy requires you to promptly notify your insurance company of any incident that could trigger coverage. Failure to provide timely notice to your car insurance company could jeopardize your coverage.


If you’’ve been in an accident that caused significant burn injuries, you deserve to have someone on your side to fight for justice and to pursue fair compensation.

Burn Injury FAQ's

Accidents happen, and that’s a fact of life.  Here are a few answers to the most frequently asked questions about burn injuries.

Any person whose negligent or intentional misconduct caused the injury can be held responsible to the injured plaintiff. This would include a large list of potential defendants from vehicle drivers, product manufacturers, construction site operators, owners of dangerous private or public property and others. The key is to establish that there is fault on at least one of these parties or any other potential defendant who caused your burn injury.

Absolutely. Given the seriousness of the injury, you or your attorney will be doing yourselves a terrible disservice if the accident is not investigated quickly and thoroughly. A thorough investigation should include an examination of the scene, the instrumentalities involved in the accident, interviews with witnesses and the collection of reports from investigating agencies.

Almost always. Because of the seriousness of your injury, it is critical that liability, i.e., fault, is pinned down as soon as possible after an accident against at least one potential wrongdoer and hopefully more. Liability experts will help you do this. These experts include mechanical engineers, metallurgists, fire investigators, accident reconstruction and human factors experts who can speak to the liability factors in the accident.

Absolutely. Given the significance of your injury, you cannot take a chance on attempting to resolve your case without the help of an attorney. An attorney, through investigation, retention of experts and litigation, will help you to establish fault against the most obvious defendant; will help you establish fault on other potential defendants; and will help minimize or eliminate any fault which would be attributed to you.

Further, an attorney will help increase the value of your case by “working up” your damages to make sure that you receive
as full compensation as possible under the circumstances.

Compensation for Burn Injury Victims

The type of compensation you might be eligible to receive for your burn injury depends on multiple factors, such as what caused the accident, where it happened, the severity of your injuries, and the amount of insurance that the liable party has.
