Do I Need a Thermal Burn Injury Lawyer?
If your injury was caused by the carelessness of another person or company, then you should not have to shoulder the financial consequences of your injury alone. Our attorneys help people who have been injured by others because we believe that victims should never pay for the mistakes of others.

Types of Thermal Burn Cases We Handle
Thermal burns can be the result of various causes and have a serious physical and financial impact on those they harm. Some common causes of thermal burns include:
- Flame burns – As the name suggests, flame burns are thermal burns caused by contact with a flame of any type.
- Scalding – Scalding is when a thermal burn is caused by contact with hot liquid. The intensity of the effect is increased the thicker the liquid is.
- Contact Burns – Victims who touch a hot surface often suffer the effects of a thermal contact burn.
- Steam Burn – The vapor escaping from hot liquids can cause serious damage to victims.
All of these burns can typically be classified as first-degree, second-degree, or third-degree. These classifications denote the severity of the burn and the accompanying physical consequences. Based on the type of burn and the severity, doctors will determine the most effective treatment method.
