    Accountability for Your Losses

    You may be entitled to compensation for numerous monetary and non-monetary losses, including:

    • Medical and hospital bills
    • Missed employment
    • Pain and suffering
    • Mental and emotional anguish
    • Loss of the ability to enjoy life.

In most cases, we will be looking for acts of negligence.

    Traffic Accident Negligence

    Traffic accident negligence, such as speeding and failure to stop at a red light, leads to accidents and often horrific burn injuries. Fire, explosions, and extremely heated auto parts are responsible for many of the burns victims suffer.

    Commercial Negligence

    We hold commercial establishments liable for instances of negligence leading to burn injuries, such as serving unreasonably hot food or beverages and failure to address electrical or fire hazards.

    Residential Negligence

    Residential negligence in the home can lead to kitchen fires, electrical fires, and out-of-control blazes from heating devices or fireplaces. Landlords may be responsible for failing to provide security measures such as working fire detectors and fire sprinklers.

    If you have been burned in a residential blaze, our burn injury lawyers in Manhattan, KS, will find the source and the part behind the source to get you compensated for your pain.

    Negligence at Work

    Work negligence is, unfortunately, a common occurrence throughout Kansas. Supervisors and workers who fail to maintain safety standards put other workers and the public at risk of being burned. Workers’ comp benefits and third-party damages may be available if you have experienced a burn injury at work.

    Other types of negligence or unlawful acts that lead to serious burn injuries include:

    • Medical negligence (medical malpractice)
    • Production and sale of dangerously defective products
    • Intentional acts, such as arson.

    When caused by intentional or grossly negligent acts, your burn injury may qualify for punitive damages.

    Palmer Law Group lawyers are always laser-focused on their main objective: maximum compensation for clients.
