Burn Injuries

Phoenix Burn Injury Lawyer

Arizona accident attorneys serving East Valley, West Valley, Chandler, Yuma, Tucson and Phoenix.

Burn injuries are among the most severe, painful and traumatizing of all injuries. Burn injuries may result from:

  • Motor vehicle accidents that result in gas take explosions
  • Industrial explosions
  • Industrial fires
  • Fires in the home
  • Fires in other’s property
  • Apartment house and hotel fires
  • Chemical fires
  • Explosions
  • Electrical burns
  • Power line burns

If you experienced burn injuries that were caused by the negligent conduct of another person, you may seek compensation in the form of personal injury claim. Even if the injuries were only partially the fault of the other individual or company, you may be able to receive compensation. Don’t assume that your injuries are just the result of a tragic accident–a host of possible causes could qualify you for legal compensation, including a defective or recalled product (for example, a malfunctioning smoke alarm), a landlord or property owner failing to meet fire code standards, or the negligence of another party creating unsafe conditions.

Wattel & York Arizona personal injury attorneys have a successful track record helping burn victims and other injured parties receive the compensation they deserve. Our Phoenix, AZ burn injury lawyers serve clients in Phoenix, Glendale, Chandler, Tucson, Yuma and throughout Arizona.


A personal injury lawsuit seeks compensation for an individual’s injuries when they were caused by another’s negligent, reckless or intentionally harmful conduct. Burn injury victims may be eligible for compensation for:

  • Medical Expenses
  • Hospital Bills
  • Future Medical Treatment
  • Home Care
  • Pain and Suffering
  • Lost Wages and Projected Lost Wages
  • Property Damage
  • Other

Whether a burn was caused by chemicals, electricity, fire, hot water or scalding, the result can be inflammation, blisters, infections, shock and even death. For victims of second degree, third degree or fourth degree (in which damage extends beyond the skin to the bones, muscles and tendons) burns, treatment can be lengthy, difficult and costly. Severe burn victims may require skin graft surgery, in which healthy skin from one part of the body is transplanted to the burn-damaged area. Split-thickness grafts involve the transplantation of only the outer layers of skin, while full-thickness grafts require the entire skin dermis to be replaced. No matter which graft surgery is utilized, tissue damage can often not be fully repaired and scarring is inevitable. Advances have been made in the last decade with artificial skin substitutes, but the science is still imperfect, and wound contraction and scarring still result.  If you have a loved one who has died as a result of a burn injury caused by the negligence of someone else, contact an experienced wrongful death lawyer in Phoenix, AZ.

Researchers are currently exploring stem cell therapy to regenerate both the outer and inner dermis layers without the need for skin grafts, and hopes are that long-term scarring would be substantially reduced. However, potential problems such as stem cell rejection have yet to be fully studied, and even if successful this new therapy is years away from being implemented. In the meantime, severe burns continue to have a devastating impact on the lives of victims.

If you were harmed in a motor vehicle accident, work injury accident, explosion or other incident that was caused by the negligent actions of another, you may seek monetary compensation to help to restore you to your former position. Of course, nothing can really take back the pain and physical injuries that you have experienced, but the monetary compensation can at least help you as you continue on in life.

“Amazing people, they had my claim for about a week before they were able to get my truck totaled out. Otherwise I would have been stuck with a truck that had heavy front end damage if they hadn’t stepped in to help me. I tried to deal with my insurance company myself for over a month and that got me nowhere, all I got was a massive headache and a messed up truck. They are very professional and act quickly on your claim. I highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for help.”

“I was in an accident and decided to call Wattel and York. After months of going to a Chiropractor, I finally felt better. When it came time for settlement, the insurance company was making an offer I wanted to accept, Mr. Wattel advised against it and felt the insurance company was shortchanging me. He recommended I file a lawsuit and that will get them to cave. Well, Dave filed suit, and sure enough, the insurance company increased their offer by $4,000! I am very satisfied with how my case was handled.”

Nardeasha S.


“Wattel & York were flat out outstanding with my personal injury case. They made the process painless and kept in constant communication throughout the entire time. Any questions I might’ve had were promptly answered and detail oriented. They gave me crucial advice that I would’ve otherwise not been aware of. I couldn’t have asked for more from them. Put your trust in these guys, you won’t be disappointed. Thanks Wattel & York.”

Mattew P.


“Thank you so much for all your hard work on our behalf! Thinking I could handle it on my own, I was originally reluctant to take my accident claim to an attorney. But I am SO glad I called you instead. Your people were always helpful, pleasant and responsive at every step along the way. You represented us with honesty and integrity and made a traumatic experience as painless as it could be. And best of all, you helped us get a settlement that was fair and far more than I could ever have negotiated on my own! I highly recommend Wattel &York to anyone who has suffered a personal injury.”

“I was the passenger in a vehicle that was 'T- Boned' at an intersection in 2014. The issues of responsibility and recovery became a difficult and convoluted confusion. I really needed help. This Team at Wattel and York walked me patiently and encouragingly through difficult months, sorting through issues and finally arriving at a satisfactory conclusion. I especially want to name two great and encouraging "warriors" of Wattel and York who directed me along the way..Brian Torba and Melissa Patterson..to them and the whole team I say "Thank You" with heart felt gratitude. Sincerely, God Bless You.”

Robert G.

“Honesty. Integrity. Transparency. Partnership. Wattel & York brought all of these qualities and more to my accident case. I'd love to thank all of the team members who helped me with the process: David Guzman, who conducted the initial interview in my home, Aly Shomar-Esparza, who seamlessly guided me through paperwork and filings, Debbie Harrach, who conducted final review, paperwork revisions and scheduling, and Thomas Grisoni, who counseled me before and attended my deposition. I never felt alone during the arduous process and always knew there was a professional team looking out for my best interest. I highly recommend Wattel & York if you are unfortunately involved in an accident that was not your fault.”

Russ W.

“I was a passenger in a car that got t-boned a few years ago and got a huge gash. I didn't know a lot about lawyers, so I basically just picked one on the flip of a coin. I called Wattel and York and they explained everything, I went into the office and filled out paperwork. Got treatment on my gash over the time I worked with them, glad I did as it opened back up a couple times and bled. They did really good, got me the maximum amount of money, and made sure I was well taken care of. I was updated from time to time so that was good. The only thing I might change is I never got to thank or talk to my lawyer. I think it was because I was already used to dealing with the lady at their Glendale office so they just kept her as my point of contact. So it's okay, I'll thank them with a good review. The last thing I could say about them is months after I thought my case was over they called me and said they had another check for me for a few hundred dollars. Apparently, they negotiated with the hospital I went to after the accident. It was a nice surprise and shows they really had my interests in mind.”

Trent B.

“Wattel & York has been great for me in the past few years. I was involved in a really bad accident while I was on Active Duty in Yuma, Arizona and they have been patient with me every step of the way through a very long process. I would recommend them to anyone thank you for all your help.”

Levy G.

“Appreciate David taking the time to speak with me. He was most kind. From the front line with the receptionist, to him, the firm was a class act all the way around.”

Claire B.

“Dave Wattel represented me and my son on a Personal Injury case from a motor vehicle accident back in 2009. Jake P. handled my deposition and Dave did the Quarterbacking. The insurance company hired NFL referee Ed Hochuli's firm to try and deny our claim. But Wattel & York made it look as easy as Tom Brady on the football field. The result was more than acceptable and my son and I were compensated for our injuries and rehabilitation. Dave Wattel cares about his clients. If I ever find myself in a situation like this again, Wattel & York will be on speed dial!!”
