St. Louis Burn Injury Lawyers
Protecting the Rights of Burn Survivors for 100+ Years
A burn injury can upend your life, cost you tens of thousands of dollars to treat, and leave you with long-term injuries. The costs go beyond the initial treatment, too. For many burn survivors, bills also pile up as their injuries cause them to miss time from work. It is also common for such injuries to result in mental and emotional trauma. To make it worse, most burn injury accidents are preventable.
If your burn injury can be traced back to someone else’s negligence, our attorney team wants to help. DiPasquale Moore has recovered millions of dollars in compensation for Missouri residents, such as for their medical expenses and pain and suffering, among other damages. We know these cases can be deeply personal, which is why we offer compassionate legal counsel to each client we work with. In court and in negotiations, we will aggressively advocate for your rights.

Burn Injury Cases We Handle
At DiPasquale Moore, we have more than 100 years of combined experience with burn injury lawsuits, such as those stemming from:
- Heat exposure
- Chemical exposure
- Defective products
- Auto and truck accidents
- Lack of fire exits
- Blocked or inaccessible fire exits
Our lawyers understand both the medical and legal side of burn injuries, as we have handled a variety of these cases. We are here to support you after sustaining burns of the second, third, fourth, or higher degree.
Finding Fault in a Burn Injury Case
To find the party at fault for your burn injury, an attorney will thoroughly investigate the burn accident/fire to uncover any evidence of negligence. You may already have suspicions as to who could be responsible, or you may be completely in the dark about it. We can help you either way. Often, the at-fault party was not even there when the burn accident/fire happened.
The most common defendants in burn injury cases include:
- Negligent technicians and electricians
- Reckless motorists, such as truckers and everyday commuters
- Owners, landlords, managers of buildings with fire code violations
- Auto and truck parts manufacturers, designers, or distributors
- Defective product manufacturers, designers, or distributors
- Construction companies that ignore fire hazards
Employers who fail to protect their employees from fire hazards may also be considered at fault for a burn injury. Employees cannot file a lawsuit against their own employer, however; they must file for workers’ compensation benefits to be compensated.
At DiPasquale Moore, we help burn survivors navigate both workers’ comp insurance claims and third-party civil lawsuits. We urge you to reach out to us to learn more about your rights.
