Massachusetts Burn Injuries and Massachusetts Wrongful Death

According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), approximately four thousand United States residents die in fires each year. Unfortunately, Massachusetts is no exception. Massachusetts fire fatalities include Massachusetts home fires, Massachusetts motor vehicle fires, Massachusetts industrial fires and fires in other Massachusetts structures. The most common causes of Massachusetts wrongful death in these fatal fires are smoke inhalation and direct contact with flames.

Massachusetts fires are not the sole cause of Massachusetts burn injury fatalities. Massachusetts chemical burns, Massachusetts radiation burns and Massachusetts electrical burns can also result in the wrongful death of the injured victim. Death by fire, radiation burns or chemical burns is not always instantaneous. The Massachusetts burn victim may often endure a long and painful deterioration of health before they eventually die from their burn injuries.

FEMA reports indicate that most fire fatalities are avoidable. The installation of working smoke alarms in all Massachusetts homes and Massachusetts businesses is an inexpensive but highly effective way to increase the likelihood of survival of occupants in a burning structure. Planning and rehearsing escape routes is another proven lifesaver. Windows should be operable at all times so that even children would be able to use them to escape a burning building in case of a fire emergency. Other proven preventative measures against Massachusetts burn injury include proper outdoor storage of any and all flammable liquids, proper caution when cigarettes or candles are in use, and proper inspection and placement of heaters of all kinds to prevent Massachusetts electrocution accidents.

After a Massachusetts fire fatality or Massachusetts burn injury wrongful death occurs, grieving family members face many significant challenges, including legal concerns. Dealing with Massachusetts insurance companies is not a straightforward matter in many cases. Massachusetts medical bills, Massachusetts probate costs and Massachusetts funeral expenses add to the already significant emotional stress of the loss of a loved one. Massachusetts families who have lost loved ones to a Massachusetts burn injury may be eligible for financial compensation.

Some compensable damages in Massachusetts wrongful death cases include:

A Massachusetts wrongful death claim arising out of a Massachusetts fire incident or a Massachusetts explosion accident, and resulting in fatal burn injuries, often ends up with substantial money damages being awarded to the family and the estate of the deceased Massachusetts burn injury victim. These damages for the families of burn injury victims are frequently in the millions of dollars and account for some of the highest damage awards in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

Typically, burn injury wrongful death damages are awarded for the following items:

  • Reasonable funeral and burial costs for the deceased burn injury victim.

  • The fair and reasonable monetary value of the deceased to the person who filed the Massachusetts burn injury wrongful death lawsuit, including expected lost income, lost services, protection, care, assistance, society, companionship, comfort, guidance, counsel and advice.

  • In the event that the Massachusetts burn injury leading to wrongful death was the result of malicious, willful, wanton or reckless conduct or gross negligence by the wrongdoer, punitive damages in a minimum amount of $5,000.00 may also be awarded in a Massachusetts burn injury case. Money damages are typically not available for the loss of a spouse’s household services arising out of a wrongful death from burn injuries, such as cooking or yard work, if the spouse was not under a legal obligation to perform such tasks at the time of his or her wrongful death from the injuries sustained in a fire or explosion accident.

Additionally, a wrongful death defendant will be held accountable for substantial money damages to compensate for the burn injury wrongful death victim’s conscious pain and suffering prior to his or her death. In order to recover monetary compensation for conscious pain and suffering, the burn injury victim’s loved ones will need to be able to introduce corroborating credible evidence that the burn injury victim experienced pain and suffering prior to his or her death as a result of the burn injuries.
