Attorneys Representing Victims of Burn Injuries From Fires, Explosions and Defective Products in Cook County, DuPage County and All of Illinois
A burn injury can change your life. Burn injuries can range from the mild to the severe, including extreme cases that may threaten the life of the victim altogether. These types of injuries can arise from any number of causes, including chemical spills, defective household appliances, defective vehicles, defective equipment, and countless failed warning systems such as alarms and smoke detectors. Understanding the cause of the burn injury is important since it can be a factor in determining the severity of the injury and, often, whether someone else is at fault for the injury. There are four main sources of burn injuries: heat, chemicals, electricity, and radiation. Comprehending the many issues associated with a burn injury can be complicated, which is why so many of these cases turn on the strength of medical testimony. If you have suffered a burn injury as a result of someone else's negligence or misconduct, you need a compassionate yet aggressive Chicago law firm on your side.
Complexities of Burn Injuries
In cases of a failure to alert, for instance, there may be multiple agents at work — someone who started the fire, a product that malfunctioned, a failed smoke detector and even obstructed exits. The many causes of fires and burn injuries which include, but are not limited to:
- Defective products
- Flammable materials
