A severe burn is not only painful but can also lead to costly medical bills. Your injury may prevent you from working, putting you in a tough financial situation. If someone else’s negligence was the cause of your burns, then it is only right that they cover your costs.

Burns are often the result of negligent activity. Whether a local restaurant fails to offer you an appropriately heated product or you suffer a burn due to a car, truck, or motorcycle accident, it is crucial that we identify the responsible party.
Burns are often divided into the following categories:
- First-degree: First-degree burns involve the outer most layer of the skin.
- Second-degree: Second-degree burns are a little deeper and include the epidermis layers of the skin.
- Third-degree: Third-degree burns affect the lower levels of the skin. They may result in permanent damage to the skin.
Burns can arise from many causes including wet or dry heat, radiation, electricity, hot objects, and chemicals. They can leave you with permanent skin damage, temporary blisters and peeling skin, and swelling. Burns can also affect other parts of your body such as causing you to go into shock in an attempt to deal with the pain.
Zanes Law will work to identify the responsible party. We will work hard to ensure you collect the compensation that you deserve for your injuries.
We do not expect you to know if you have a case. Scheduling a free case consultation with our team of burn injury lawyers gives us the chance to evaluate the details of your burn injury. From here, we can advise you on the best steps to take going forward.
We want to make this process as easy as possible for you. If you are still recovering at your home or in a hospital, our legal team will come to you. There is no obligation to you as we will never collect any payment unless we are also able to collect compensation on your behalf.
It is vital that we demonstrate not only that the responsible party had a legal duty of care for your safety, but also that they breached that duty through negligence. Additionally, we will need to collect documents to demonstrate how the burn injury has, and will, affect your life. We will immediately begin collecting evidence that shows negligence.
We will work to collect the following documents:
- Witness statements
- Medical records
- Product testing reports
- Income statements
- Surgical bills
- Expert witness statements
- Images of the burn
Manage All Communications
Dealing with a burn injury can be time-consuming and expensive. You may be constantly bombarded with phone calls and letters from insurance companies and the other legal counsel. They may attempt to pressure you into settling outside of court.
You should not have to deal with this pressure. Allow the lawyers at Zanes Law to manage all communications on your behalf, while you focus on your recovery. You can trust that we will represent you with your best interest while also keeping you informed of key details along the way.
Determine Your Damages
Burn injuries can affect you both physically and psychologically. They can prevent you from returning to work. They can also make you fear the item or situation that left you with the severe burns. We will assist you in determining your damages including the following types of costs:
- Current medical expenses
- Anticipated medical costs
- Pain medication
- Lost wages
- Diminished earning capacity
- Surgical reconstruction costs
- Property damage
- Counseling services
- Wrongful death
Although placing a value on pain and suffering is more difficult than when considering economic costs, it is an important cost to include. The pain from a burn injury is unique and can be extremely painful. It can take many months, or even years, to fully recover from a burn injury. Some burn injuries may never completely heal.
For this reason, we are fully prepared to turn down any settlement offer from the responsible party that does not fully cover your damages, including pain and suffering. If necessary, we will exercise all of our legal options to ensure you receive the compensation that you deserve.
Severe burns can lead to a wrongful death case. If you lost a loved one due to burn injuries, you may be eligible for compensation.
Unfortunately, Arizona places a time limit on how long we have to file a personal injury case. In most cases, we have just two years to file a burn injury case. However, some situations can shorten this time limit, so it is important to reach out to a burn injury lawyer as soon as possible.
It is crucial to have a lawyer on your side that you can trust when it comes to a burn injury case. Burn injuries are not only temporarily very painful, but they also tend to have lifelong implications. If another person is to blame for your burn injury, then they should also cover your costs.
Zanes Law will fight for your legal rights while also respecting your time and need for recovery. We are familiar with Arizona laws as they apply to burn injuries and we will use this knowledge and experience to assist you.
