Who Can I Sue for My Scald Injury?

In order to have a strong injury claim, you must first determine how your scald injury came about and who was behind it. An injury attorney can help you conduct an investigation of your accident case.

Ask yourself: did the accident that led to your scald injury take place in a restaurant, in a motel/hotel, or on someone else’s property? If so, you may have a viable liability claim against the:

  • Building/business owner or landlord
  • Any hired personnel
  • Leasing agent
  • Maintenance company
  • Others

Scald injuries are also commonly caused by rapid and unexpected changes in water temperature, which can occur due to:

  • Malfunctioning thermostats
  • Defective water heaters
  • Other shoddy water-based equipment

If the above applies to your case, you may bring a product liability lawsuit against the manufacturer of the involved product.
