Premise Liability Claims for Burn Injuries

Property owners and managers should take the necessary steps to prevent their residents, clients, and visitors from sustaining burn injuries while on the premises. Negligence occurs when an individual is found to have committed an action that falls below the standard of care a reasonable person would have exercised in a given situation. Gross negligence takes this concept a step further. While not all burn accidents are the result of premises negligence, there are many crucial safety precautions that property owners are obligated to take to minimize the risk of injuries on their grounds. If a property owner fails to take these steps, he or she may be held legally accountable for any ensuing burn injuries that occur on the property.

Burn Injuries from Safety Violations

Burn accidents can occur due to a variety of safety concerns. If these issues are the result of property owner negligence, the burn victim can hold the careless property owner responsible for his or her lack of care through a premises liability lawsuit. The following may be grounds for a premises liability claim:

  • Burn injuries from a lack of fire alarms, sprinkler systems, or clearly marked exits
  • Electrical burn injuries from improperly covered wires
  • Contact burns from uncovered or unmarked hot surfaces or objects
  • Water or steam burns from pipe bursts or boiler room malfunctions
  • Chemical burns from improperly stored hazardous materials

Burn injuries, whether due to heat, electricity, or chemical exposure, can require substantial medical care that may place a massive financial burden on an injured individual. However, the victim can seek compensation with the help of a knowledgeable legal team.
