Serious burn injuries from explosions, car accidents, house fires, natural gas fires, and other types of catastrophic accidents can be life threatening. Each year there are nearly 45,000 people in the United States that seek medical treatment at hospitals and special burn treatment units for burn injuries.
Victims of the most serious burn injuries face a lifetime of treatment, reconstructive surgeries and an array of personal challenges. Burn injuries can require numerous medical procedures and lengthy rehabilitation, making burns among the most expensive injuries to treat.
No matter how minor or serious the burn, or how the burn accident happened, victims and their families often have questions about their legal rights and calculating fair and reasonable compensation for injuries, medical bills, lost wages, and other damages.

A burn victim injured by a fire that was caused by the negligence of another has legal rights in Washington state. Although laws are different from state to state, and legal rights may vary by jurisdiction, burn victims can generally make a claim for damages against a negligent person or company and may recover financial compensation for medical treatment, lost wages, other economic damages and non-economic damages such as pain and suffering, loss of consortium, etc.
Not every burn accident victim needs the assistance of a lawyer. For those that choose to hire an attorney, a lawsuit is not always necessary. More often than not attorneys are able to negotiate settlements for their burn injury clients without ever litigating the case.
Burn injury lawsuits can help facilitate change in awareness, behavior and the law which may help prevent future accidents, injuries and deaths. Litigation not only serves the purpose of compensating a burn victim, but also holds negligent persons and companies that caused the accident accountable for their actions. Lawsuits can help change the law. Litigation often serves to force changes in the safety of products; corporate policies; safety procedures and the personal conduct of individuals. These changes can prevent others from suffering similar accidents and injuries in the future.
