  • Different Types of Burns

    Some of the most common types of burns we’ve witnessed in our 35 years of experience representing burn victims in America include:

    • Thermal burns from direct contact with flames, steam, or hot liquids.
    • Chemical burns caused by exposure to corrosive substances.
    • Electrical burns from live wires or electrical sources.
    • Radiation burns due to exposure to ultraviolet light or radiation.
    • Friction burns which occur from contact with hard surfaces.
    • Cold burns that result from prolonged exposure to freezing temperatures.
    • Inhalation injuries which are not visible burns but damage the airways.

    Once we’ve figured out the specific types of burns you or a loved one has suffered, the next step is to determine liability and different ways to secure the compensation you might be entitled to.

  • Grounds to File a Burn Injury Claim

    The most common causes of burn injuries are negligence or recklessness. As a result, the victim may be able to file a claim or lawsuit, depending on the other party’s willingness to cooperate. Examples of such cases include:

    • Faulty electrical wiring
    • Unsafe workplace conditions
    • Defective products
    • Car accidents
    • Negligent handling of flammable materials
    • Lack of safety measures in public or private properties.
    • Inadequate warning labels on chemicals or heat-producing devices.
  • Can I File a Claim If I Get Burned While at Work?

    In South Carolina, workplace injuries, including burns, are covered by workers’ compensation. This type of insurance provides benefits for medical expenses and lost wages, even if the worker is at fault.

    However, suppose your burn injury was caused by egregious negligence or involves a third party. In that case, you might have a claim beyond workers' compensation to seek damages not typically covered by your workers’ compensation insurance, such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment or life, and even permanent disfigurement.
