The Burn Injury Claim Process

Negligence is if an individual, entity, business, or organization fails to exercise reasonable care causing injury to another individual. The injured party may file a claim in a court of law for negligence requesting compensation for the damages suffered. A plaintiff is an individual who files a claim. The individual, business, entity, or organization whom the claim is filed against is known as the defendant.

  • The defendant named in the claim owed the plaintiff a duty (or obligation) to ensure reasonable care.
  • The defendant in the claim failed the duty of care the plaintiff is owed.
  • The reason for injury to the plaintiff was the defendant’s breach.
  • The plaintiff is owed compensation due to the damages he/she suffered.

Burn injury claims may include costs of the following:

  • Medical expenses
  • Future medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Future lost wages
  • Physical impairment
  • Physical challenge
  • Mental impairment
  • Pain and suffering
