Proving Liability for a Burn Injury in Las Vegas

Burns can happen from restaurant accidents, excessively hot food, house fires, vehicle accidents, workplace accidents, and various other causes. If another party inflicted a burn injury on you through any type of negligence or intentional misconduct, Nevada law dictates that they are responsible for all associated damages.

Before you can secure compensation for your burn injury, you must identify who is responsible for causing it and prove how they caused it. When a burn results from negligence, the injured victim needs to prove that the defendant held some duty of care they failed to fulfill and therefore caused the plaintiff’s claimed damages. If you were burned through any intentional act, the defendant faces not only liability for your damages but also criminal prosecution.

Your Las Vegas burn injury attorney can be invaluable for gathering the evidence needed to prove fault for your damages. Depending on where and how the accident occurred, this may come down to physical evidence, digital evidence, and witness testimony from those who saw the injury occur. When you select Easton & Easton as your legal representatives in a burn injury case, we can immediately get to work helping you gather whatever evidence you will need to firmly establish liability for your damages. Once we help accomplish this initial step in your case, we can then assist you in proving the full scope of your damages.

Claiming Compensation for Your Burn Injury Claim in Las Vegas

Under state law, the defendant who caused your burn injury is responsible for compensating you for all associated damages. State law allows you to include both economic and non-economic damages in your personal injury claim:

  • Burns often require extensive medical treatment. The defendant who caused your burn is liable for the cost of your hospital treatment, surgical costs, and any rehabilitative treatment you need. Some burns can cause extensive medical complications that require ongoing therapeutic care, and your attorney can help hold the defendant fully accountable for the entire spectrum of medical treatment you require for your burn injury.
  • Your burn injury could leave you unable to work and earn income for an extended period. If this applies to your case, your Las Vegas burn injury attorney can help hold the defendant accountable for the income you are unable to earn while you recover. If you are permanently disabled by your burn injury and cannot return to work at all, the defendant is also responsible for your lost future income. An experienced attorney can be a crucial asset for helping you accurately calculate these projected future losses.
  • If the defendant also damaged your property, such as your vehicle, your home, or your personal belongings with their actions, they are responsible for all repair and replacement costs. Your attorney can help calculate these damages and add them to your personal injury suit.
  • The plaintiff in a burn injury case can also hold a defendant accountable for the pain and suffering they endured from the defendant’s actions. Burns are incredibly painful and traumatic, often resulting in scarring that is psychologically distressful to the victim. The average person will likely struggle to determine fair monetary values for intangible losses like physical pain and psychological suffering, but an experienced Las Vegas burn injury attorney can help their client maximize this side of their case award. The state does not limit pain and suffering compensation except in professional negligence claims.

Other variables could also come into play depending on how the defendant caused your burn injury, influencing the total amount of compensation you receive. For example, if they committed a crime when they caused your burn injury or inflicted your injury intentionally, they will face criminal prosecution from the state. This could, in turn, lead to punitive damages or restitution, enhancing your recovery.

If you bear partial liability for the incident that caused your burn injury in Las Vegas, NV, this could mean losing a percentage of your final case award under Nevada’s negligence law. The state follows the modified comparative negligence statute, meaning a plaintiff may still claim compensation for damages when they share liability with a defendant, but only so long as their fault is less than 50%. If so, their case award is reduced by their fault percentage, so bearing 10% fault means losing 10% of their award. If they are found more than 50% at fault, they cannot claim compensation from the defendant.

Ultimately, burns can be life-changing injuries, resulting in physical impairments and psychological trauma from the pain of these injuries and the disfigurement they may cause. It can be incredibly difficult to navigate any personal injury claim on your own, especially one as damaging as a burn injury claim. Hiring an experienced Las Vegas burn injury attorney to represent you will make every aspect of your recovery process easier to manage and more likely to yield optimal results. When you select Easton & Easton as your legal counsel, we will do everything to streamline your recovery process as much as state law allows and maximize the total compensation you win from the defendant.

Burn Injury Lawyers FAQs

Q: How Much Compensation Can I Claim for a Burn Injury?

A: Nevada’s personal injury laws uphold that if another party caused your burn injury, they are responsible for all associated economic damages, such as your medical costs, lost income, and any loss of property caused by their actions. You can also claim pain and suffering compensation, and there is no limit to the amount you can include. Your Las Vegas burn injury attorney can help ascertain the full scope of damages you can include in your civil suit.

Q: How Are Pain and Suffering Calculated for Burn Injuries?

A: Your Las Vegas burn injury attorney can help determine a fair amount of pain and suffering to seek from the defendant who caused your burn injury. Most attorneys can multiply their client’s total economic damages by a factor of one to five to reflect the severity of their injury. If you suffered a serious burn resulting in permanent disfigurement and/or disability, your pain and suffering compensation could eclipse the total of your economic damages.

Q: How Much Time Do I Have to Start a Burn Injury Claim in Las Vegas?

A: There is a two-year statute of limitations on personal injury claims in the state, meaning you must file your case within two years of the date your injury occurred. Failure to do so could mean losing your chance to recover compensation from the party responsible for the injury. The sooner you file your case, the more likely you are to maximize your recovery.

Q: Do I Really Need to Hire a Las Vegas Burn Injury Attorney?

A: While there may not be any law requiring you to hire legal counsel for your impending burn injury case, you are more likely to succeed with the claim and more likely to maximize the damages you obtain from the defendant with an attorney’s assistance. Additionally, your attorney can handle the procedural aspects of your case so you can focus on your recovery.

Q: How Much Does a Las Vegas Burn Injury Attorney Cost to Hire?

A: The attorneys at Easton & Easton accept personal injury claims on a contingency fee basis, meaning we only take a legal fee from a client after we win their case. If we cannot secure compensation for your damages, you will pay nothing, and if we win a case award, we only take a percentage as our fee. This allows you to approach your claim with confidence and have the legal representation you need to secure the compensation you legally deserve for your damages.

The attorneys at Easton & Easton have successfully represented many personal injury clients in Las Vegas, including those who have suffered life-changing burn injuries due to the negligence and misconduct of others.

Ashlee A.

Retaining Easton and Easton was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made! From the initial consultation to our final meeting, they were nothing short of exceptional. I was forced to retain their services after firing my previous attorney for not handling the case properly. I dealt with Gabriel and Brian (partner) exclusively throughout the case. They did as promised and were great communicators throughout the entire process. I will recommend them to anyone I know going through a personal injury case. They were ultimately able to untangle the mess caused by my previous lawyer and get a result that I was extremely happy with. Their staff is exceptional as well and provided top notch customer service. Amera was also extremely helpful and easy to deal with as well.
