Burn Injuries Lawyer


Burn injuries are amongst the most potentially deadly – and painful – of all possible injuries. Burn injuries may occur in so many ways, whether by an appliance setting itself on fire, or electrical wires burning out, causing a house to burn down, or a gas stove exploding, or a faulty plug catching on fire. Our Phoenix burn injury attorneys will make sure the party who manufactures inferior products, knowing that there may be an accident or injury about to occur (usually based on past experience with the product), is accountable for intentional or egregious or reckless negligence. Which holds a higher standard of duty and also results in a greater amount of damages – and a possible criminal conviction.


While the list is practically endless, here are a few items that are likely to create burn injury situations:

  • Electric blanket
  • Electric heating pad
  • Space heaters
  • Irons
  • Exploding/sparking wall outlets
  • Curling irons
  • Cleaning chemicals used directly upon the skin
  • Fire from the grill
  • Fire from the stove
  • Fire from the oven
  • Fire from the fireplace
  • Scalding hot liquid
  • Hot cooking oil
  • Excessively hot steam
  • Electrical burns
  • Radiation – tanning booths, arc welding, radiation therapy
  • Exploding cars and car parts
  • Industrial parts while working on big rigs or on heavy equipment
  • Many, many other forms of burns


If you experienced a deep burn, the first thing to do is to call 911 and to get the help you need. After you are settled, it is to your benefit to speak to your personal injury attorney to see if there is a cause of action for a personal injury lawsuit based on a defective product or other legal theory. Also, if it can be proven that another party actually intentionally created your burn injury, that individual would very likely be both civilly and criminally liable for their actions. The Phoenix injury lawyers at Curiel and Runion are aggressive, pro-active and attentive lawyers who will examine every aspect of your case to see if a viable personal injury cause of action may be relevant under the circumstances of your case. You may be entitled to pain and suffering, medical expenses, loss of past and future income, rehabilitation, property damage and more. There are no legal fees required to progress in your case because all personal injury cases are taken on a consignment basis. This means that unless we recover money for you, you do not have to pay a penny. On the other hand, if we settle your case out of court with the adjuster, or win a court award, we share the winnings with you on a contingency fee basis.
