You deserve to receive a full settlement to pay for all that you’ve been through and to bring the negligent person to justice. A Phoenix burn injury lawyer at our firm can help.
Burn injuries are caused by your body’s contact with some type of heat source. For instance, your body could come into contact with fire.

For instance, if shoddy electrical wiring on the part of an electrician led to a house fire, you could sue the electrician for the burn injuries you suffered.
There are many different types of heat sources and many different types of people or organizations could be liable for your injuries. Here are a few common causes of burns:
One of the duties your Phoenix burn accident attorney has is to fight for your right to compensation. You didn’t cause the accident that resulted in a burn injury, so you shouldn’t be expected to pay for your losses.

|Economic Damages (Financial Losses)||Non-Economic Damages (Non-Financial Losses)|
|Hospital bills and outpatient doctor bills||Physical pain and suffering|
