What You Should Know About Chicago Burn Injuries Lawsuits
Serious burns require serious treatment. Severe burns could require hospitalization, need of breathing assistance, or use of a feeding tube. IV fluids and drugs to fight anxiety, infection, and pain may be necessary. Skin grafts, plastic surgery, and ongoing physical therapy are all potential needs of burn patients. Victims may also need emotional support and months of continued care. Even minor burn injuries in Chicago can result in doctor visits, need of medication, and time lost at work.
Burn injuries can be painful and traumatic, and you and your loved ones have suffered enough. You should be able to focus on healing and should not have to worry about the costs of your recovery, especially if your accident was not your own fault.
If someone else was negligent, they should be held responsible. They should pay their fair share in your recovery and share the costs for treatments needed to get back to your normal way of life.
Bars, hotels, restaurants, and other public businesses have a responsibility for the conditions of their property. Employers have a responsibility to provide a safe work environment. Companies are responsible for the safety of their products. All public spaces must have proper fire detection equipment, a fire safety plan, and other fire prevention methods in place in case of a fire, according to the City of Chicago.
Chicago burn injuries can happen because of apartment fires, workplace accidents, automobile accidents, or even due to faulty wiring, defective electrical cords, or the use of unsafe chemicals.
If some else’s negligence contributed to your accident, you have the right to seek compensation. Ben Crump Law, PLLC can help you fight for awards for pain and suffering, medical costs, physical therapy and ongoing treatment, permanent disability, lost wages, and more.

Illinois law gives plaintiffs two years from the date of injury to file a burn injuries lawsuit. Even if the accident was partially your fault, you can still seek awards. Illinois Civil Procedure 735 ILCS 5/2-1116 states that as long as the liable party’s responsibility for the accident is greater than 50 percent, you can sue for compensation in proportion to that responsibility.
