We Handle all Kinds of Accidents That Cause Burn Injuries

There are countless scenarios when a burn injury might occur. Some of the more common causes include:

  • Motor-Vehicle Collisions: Although most car accidents do not result in a fire, a forceful impact can lead to an explosion that causes devastating burn injuries. This is most often the result of gasoline igniting.
  • Defective Products: Products with a design or manufacturing defect can overheat or spark, causing burn injuries or even igniting a house fire. Items that use combustible fuel sources or batteries pose the highest risk of burn injuries. If you were burned due to a product defect, the attorneys at Donaldson & Weston can investigate your case to determine the cause of the defect and identify all liable parties.
  • Scalding Liquids: You might think of cooking oil or hot coffee when you hear the term "scalding," but it takes little more than hot top water to burn the skin.
  • Gas Explosions: Most of the gas pipelines that snake across the country were constructed in the 1950s and 1960s, making gas explosions a growing concern. Such explosions can also occur at worksites and anywhere natural gas or propane tanks are refilled or used.
  • Chemical Reactions: The phrase "chemical reaction" might evoke images of beakers in a laboratory, but even common household cleaning products can cause painful chemical burns. Examples include bleach, pool chlorine, and concrete mix.
  • Electrocutions: Electrocutions typically occur in work-related settings when a person handles electrical wires, but they can happen in a variety of ways. In addition to burn injuries, victims may suffer potentially fatal cardiac issues and brain trauma.
  • Housefires: Kitchen mishaps, faulty wiring, smoking in the bedroom, and unattended candles are just a few of the most common causes of housefires.

What Our Clients Say
★★★★★
The attorneys at Donaldson & Weston helped me get an amazing result on my case. Obviously I’ve been through a lot physically but I feel better now and the money really helped my family. When I was riding my bicycle I was hit by a truck that wasn't paying attention. I am not the suing type, but I would definitely hire this firm again. - M.P.

I think it’s great that only attorneys work on my case, it definitely made me feel comfortable - D.L.
★★★★★
After my accident happened I waited to hear back from the insurance company for about 6 months. I just felt like they kept jerking me around. They even told me not to hire an attorney because it would mean less money in my pocket. I couldn't wait any longer because my bills were out of hand. I hired this firm and they were solid. I got a great result without having to go to court. - S.C.
