Burn Injury Claims & Negligence

Victims who suffer burn injuries in preventable accidents can bring personal injury lawsuits against the responsible parties to recover their damages. These civil claims may be brought against any number of defendants and for many different reasons, depending on the facts of a case. However, they’re nearly always based on claims that the defendant was negligent in causing harm.

Examples of things that can give rise to a burn injury lawsuit:

Elements of an Injury Claim

A successful personal injury claim requires plaintiffs to prove a few important elements. Generally, this means establishing that:

  1. A legal duty existed (i.e. a property owner owed the plaintiff a duty of care to keep their premises free from burn hazards);
  2. The defendant breached their duty because of negligence;
  3. The defendant’s negligence was a substantial cause of injury; and
  4. The plaintiff suffered damages as a result.

Our team conducts meticulous investigations to gather evidence needed to establish clients’ claims. We’re also adept in negotiating out-of-court and mediated settlements and have the track record to prove we know how to litigate in court when needed.

    "David worked our case with professionalism and patience in an amazing way that ultimately led to a positive outcome."
    Right from the very beginning of our case, David Skall and his assistant Jean Witt were both extremely kind and compassionate to help us put closure on a wrongful death case involving my father at a care facility. They were quick to answer any questions that we had and they made sure we were kept in the loop of this entire process. even though we were in the middle of a pandemic, David and his team were able to adapt their technology and make it all work out for our benefit. I would strongly recommend them to anyone in need of legal help.
