Burn injury victims often face long recovery times and significant medical expenses after suffering from the pain of the original injury. When burn injuries are caused by the negligence of another individual – or as a result of a dangerous or defective product malfunction – injury victims may be eligible to file a lawsuit to recover financial compensation and to hold those negligent parties accountable for their actions.
If you or someone that you care for has become a burn injury victim, the Mesa burn injury lawyers at Phillips Law Group welcome the opportunity to review the details of the incident and help to determine if you have grounds to file a claim.

We charge no upfront fees to review your case and we don’t get paid unless we obtain a recovery on your behalf.

Do I Have A Burn Injury Case?
Proving negligence is an important component of a burn injury case. It must be proven that another party was responsible for the injuries that the plaintiff has received. Often, this involves determining that there has been a “breach of duty” or perhaps someone has not extended a “duty of care”.
For example – a person is using a small, electric room heater that is not supposed to catch on fire however, due to a design defect, the unit caught on fire and someone was burned as a result. In this example, the manufacturer of the room heater may have breached the duty of care that it owed to the victim.
Another example may be an apartment fire that could have been prevented had the landlord followed the fire safety laws as they relate to their property.
What Is My Case Worth?
When medical bills being to accumulate, burn victims may often begin to wonder if they have a case and if so, what the financial value of that case is. Due to the complexity of burn injury cases – and that as every case is different – it can be difficult to provide an accurate answer to that question without knowing the details associated with each specific case.
However, our attorneys understand that injury victims have questions about their potential case and we can help to provide answers to those questions. To get started today, we recommend contacting a burn injury lawyer at our firm so that we can review the details of your specific incident to determine if you have grounds to file a lawsuit.
How Can A Lawyer Help My Burn Injury Case?
In most personal injury lawsuits, plaintiffs that have legal representation receive more financial compensation when compared to plaintiffs that are not represented by an attorney.
Following a fire-related incident, insurance companies often get involved quickly in an effort to resolve the claim for the smallest financial outlay possible. Many burn injury victims are not aware of the tactics that insurers use and are often coerced into providing statements and other information that can be used to discredit their insurance claim.
Having Phillips Law Group in your corner can help to protect you against the tactics used by insurance companies, and provide accurate, honest information about your potential lawsuit.

Common Causes of Burn Injuries
While there can be instances of burn injuries in the workplace, according to the National Fire Protection Association – more than 70 percent of all fire deaths occur at home. Kitchens, lit candles, smoking, space heaters and faulty wiring are among some of the most common causes of home fires, which can also be a source of burn injuries.
When apartment complexes are involved, landlords are obligated to abide by laws that have been designed to protect tenants from fire-related injuries. In the event that landlords do not follow these rules and regulations, they may be held accountable.
Types Of Burn Injuries
There are generally three primary types of burns that injury victims can face:
- First Degree – these burns affect the outer layer of skin only and often look like a very severe sunburn. Most first degree burns take a week to heal and commonly, do not require hospitalization.
- Second Degree – these burns affect both the outer and inner layers of skin. They often appear to be a bright red or pink color and take several weeks to heal. Second degree burn victims also often experience painful blisters while the wound heals.
- Third Degree – these burns affect multiple layers including the skin, tissue, muscle and bone. Victims of third degree burns often suffer from scarring in the affected areas, with recovery times taking several months.
Many burn injury victims are required to undergo skin graft surgery, which can be painful and expensive. In a skin graft, healthy skin is taken from a healthy area and then applied to the burned area. During these types of surgeries, burn victims are exposed to bleeding and potential reactions to anesthesia, while post-surgery, they can be exposed to bacterial infections, nerve damage, pain and permanent nerve damage.

Thank you for your message, we will get back to you soon.
I’ve been working at Phillips Law Group for nearly four years and I can confidently say this is the best personal injury firm in Arizona to work for. The firm is the best for numerous reasons but to start, Phillips Law Group gives employees opportunities for promotions and growth. I started working within the settlement department, moved to a paralegal assistant and grew to be a pre-litigation paralegal with my own case load. Each attorney I have worked for is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to talk to. Secondly, I love how Phillips Law shows appreciation for employees. They host Friday Zoom Huddles giving out PTO, goodie bags, special shout outs, bonuses and gift cards. They also host extravagant holiday parties and fun contests during the Holidays! Lastly, the firm cares about giving back to the community, which is a trait I value as well. It’s rewarding to see a fast paced firm taking time out of their busy day to pay it forward. I would highly recommend working at Phillips Law Group!
I would like to send special thanks to Phillips Law Group for giving me the opportunity to be a part of the Best Law Firm here in the Valley. During these troubling times with the epidemic, Phillips Law Group has masterfully created this family-like environment while still maintaining a professional and business-like approach for all their clients. Thru impeccable leadership that is unmatched by other law firms to the Multi-diverse employment opportunities that many employees advance within the firm; Phillips Law Group has not only distanced themselves from all other competition in the Personal Injury field but also has innovatively changed the narrative of being a great law institution. From providing Employee Appreciation Day to celebrating all major Holiday including great competitive contests; Phillips Law Group has the total participation of all employees to help contribute to the continued success of this firm. So in closing I would like to thank Senior Administration (Jeffery Phillips, Eva Chiaramonte, and Tim Tonkin) along with all of my colleagues and many friends for help making Phillips Law Group a unique and wonderful place to call my place of employment for 6+ years.
I was recently served court documents that I was being sued from an accident that happened years ago. For someone who has never been through something like this and not familiar with the court lingo or where to even begin, it was very frustrating and stressful. I reached out to a family member who knew Tracy Laskos and the great reputation of Phillips Law Group and within the hours of the initial call for help, I had a direct number to Lead Attorney Nassar. Nassar heard my case and almost instantly put me at ease by explaining the process and how easy it was to handle. Nassar spoke to me like he was a friend, not like I was a client. I am so grateful to Tracy, Nasar and of course my cousin Stephanie for helping out and giving me the direction that I needed to get through this situation. I plan on referring my friends, family and patients that are in need of a personal injury Attorney to Phillips Law Group. Thank you!!
Great experience! Took care of pretty much everything, and I always felt like I want in good hands. Caroline Fa. was also a great help with everything. She always returned my calls and I never felt unheard. Even after my case she would still help me with my insurance documents.
PLG is the best! Highly recommend. Love that they do so much to help the community.
Liz Gonzales was great!!!!
Definitely recommend! Awesome

It’s an Honor and a Privilege to work for a company that cares about its employees and clients for 12 years. I’ve seen Management go out of their way to help someone whether it’s a personal matter or work related. I am also reminded of many occasions where a Client needed urgent help and we as a Team were able to get the person immediate assistance. At Phillips Law we make that happen through Teamwork and a dedication to our profession. I’ve had numerous jobs in several other fields, those were just jobs. This is a home. Many of us have been here for quite a few years, it feels like one large extended family.
Sophia H is a pleasure to work with! Thanks for all you do.
