Property Owner Negligence and Burn Injuries

Property owners and managers need to take reasonable precautions to prevent a guest, resident, or worker from sustaining an otherwise avoidable burn injury. Burn incidents, from fire-related burns to chemical burns, can be caused by a wide range of mistakes, and it’s the property owner’s responsibility to minimize the possibility of an injury by taking the appropriate property management steps. Failing to do so may result in serious accidents, and negligent property owners can be held accountable for the damages. Call us if you were hurt due to property owner negligence and burn injuries were the result.

Burn Injuries From Unsafe Premises

Property owners can install fire prevention systems or establish safety protocols to prevent serious burn injuries on their properties. If they don’t maintain a strong commitment to safety, innocent people can suffer in accidents that may cause severe burns. The following may be considered the responsibility of a property owner:

  • Fire-related burns could have been avoided with adequate alarms, sprinkler systems, and well-marked exits and evacuation protocol
  • Electrical burns caused by faulty or unsheathed wiring
  • Contact burns caused by uncovered or unmarked heat sources
  • Hot water and steam burns caused by broken pipes or boiler room explosions
  • Chemical burns caused by improper storage of dangerous materials

Burn injuries can leave affected individuals with significant medical expenses and other financial burdens that can quickly become overwhelming. However, there may be legal means to fight for compensation from the negligent property owner at fault for these costs.
