Phoenix Burn Injury Attorney
Burn injuries are some of the worst injuries that a human can endure and can cause extreme pain, serious infections, and permanent disfigurement. Burn survivors may endure years of reconstructive surgeries, treatments, and rehabilitative therapies. Many severe burns stem from the intentional torts, negligence or recklessness of others. In 2016, 486,000 burns required medical treatment, according to the American Burn Association. If you believe someone else carelessly or recklessly caused your serious burn injuries, the Arizona personal injury lawyers at Gallagher & Kennedy can help.

How a Phoenix Burn Injury Lawyer Can Help
Suffering significant burn injuries could lead to immense pain and suffering, emotional duress and uncertainty about your future. You may have to undergo multiple surgeries or live with permanent loss of mobility after a burn injury.

Common Causes of Burn Injuries
The four types of burns are thermal, chemical, electrical, and radiation. Thermal burns are the most common, occurring from contact with flames, steam, hot metals or other objects. All burn injury types can cause first- to third-degree tissue damage. First-degree burns typically do not cause permanent scars, while third-degree burns can lead to scarring, disfigurement, and amputations. Many different personal injury incidents can cause burn injuries.
- Chemical spills
- Dangerous premises
- Defective products
- Fires or explosions
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Workplace accidents
Many burn injuries trace back to another party’s error, poor decision-making or intent to harm.
