Burn injuries are some of the most painful, debilitating, and permanently scarring types of accident injuries a person can sustain. Severe burn injuries can be life-threatening and can be caused by large trucks, trains, buses, cars, and defective products.
Burn injuries can cause catastrophic physical injuries, severe pain, emotional trauma, and financial losses. The Denver burn injury attorneys of the Bendinelli Law Firm are dedicated to helping burn victims recover the compensation they deserve for their injuries, financial losses, and other damages.

Burn injuries are usually associated with flames, fire, and explosions. Car accidents, truck accidents, bus accidents, and train accidents, can result in burn injuries as vehicles catch on fire after a collision. However, burn injuries can also result from airbags deploying during an accident.
Explosions involving defective products can also cause burns. Some defective products can cause thermal or electrical burns without explosions. Hazardous chemicals on construction sites can be a source of burn injuries. Pool chemicals could cause burns, resulting in a premises liability claim.
Friction burns occur when your skin rubs against a surface. Motorcycle accidents can cause friction burns, commonly referred to as road rash. Electrical burns are also caused by defective products and sources of electrical current, such as high voltage areas on construction sites. However, frayed cables and wires in a store, hotel, or other commercial setting could cause electrical burns, too.
There are four degrees of burns. The higher the degree, the more damage caused by the burn. First degree burns are the least severe. They involve damage to the first layer of skin. Second-degree burns damage to the second layer of skin and generally cause blistering. Second-degree burns can result in scarring.
Third and fourth-degree burns are the most serious. These burns damage the lower layers of skin. Fourth-degree burns can damage the underlying tendons, bones, and muscles. Third and fourth-degree burns can be life-threatening. Immediate medical treatment is required.
The complications caused by burns can also be life-threatening. Infections are common with severe burns. Severe infections after a burn injury can result in death.
Investigating the cause of the burn injury can be a complicated, lengthy undertaking. Depending on the circumstances and the parties involved in the accident, experts may be required to assist in the investigation.
Our lawyers will thoroughly investigate the cause of your burn injury by gathering evidence to prove fault and liability. We do not stop until we exhaust every legal avenue to hold the party who caused your burn injury liable for their negligence and wrongdoing.
Many burn injury cases might involve large corporations and insurance providers who aggressively fight to avoid compensating victims.
