You do your best to keep your family safe. You are careful in the kitchen and have trained your children to use electricity safely. But there’s nothing you can do to prevent injury from a defective consumer product.
When a defective product causes a burn injury, you can hold the company that manufactured the product responsible. The company should compensate you for any medical bills, lost wages, and the victim’s pain and suffering. If the defective product caused a death, you may also file an Illinois wrongful death claim.
The first step is to contact Hupy and Abraham. We’ll investigate the injury and determine how the burn happened and who is liable. We’ll gather the evidence needed to support your claim.
Examples of Burn Injuries Caused by Negligence
- On-the-job burn accident caused by safety violations or lack of employee training
- Workplace chemical burns resulting from improperly stored or improperly labeled chemical
- A space heater that overheats and explodes
- A child is given scalding hot-chocolate at a restaurant
- A fire death caused by a blocked fire escape
- A building fire resulting from fire code violations
- A burn injury from a car or motorcycle accident
Burns are serious injuries that require intensive medical treatment. Hospitalization, surgery, and rehabilitation can result in millions of dollars in medical bills. If the burn is someone else’s fault, they are responsible for the medical bills. To learn more, contact the Rockford office of Hupy and Abraham at 800-390-6350.
