Combustible liquid and vapor fires are the reason for many injuries and deaths in our country. According to the National Fire Center, between 1989 and 1998, there were an average of 2 million fires reported each year in the United States. More than 27,000 burn injuries were sustained during those years, and more than 4,000 people died as a result of these fires. On average, the NFC also concluded that annual property damage was approximately $8.6 billion during those years.

Products Likely to Result in Burn Injuries

Flammable liquids are often found around the home. Among the most widely known combustible products that have caused fire and burn injuries in Massachusetts are:

  • lighter fluid
  • gasoline
  • insecticides
  • LP gas
  • acetone
  • benzene
  • floor coating products
  • lacquer
  • glue/contact cement
  • paint/paint thinner
  • turpentine
  • varnish
  • methyl ethyl ketone
  • toluene
  • acetylene
  • alcohol
  • mineral spirits
  • household cleaners
  • hair spray/nail polish remover
  • hexane
  • diesel fuel
  • kerosene
  • ether

Alone, these liquid fuel products themselves are not flammable. They become flammable when the vapors that come from the surface of the liquid catch fire, when mixed with air and a spark or another source of fire. The flash point of flammable liquids are the lowest temperatures at which a combustible liquid will give off a dense enough vapor to form an ignitable mixture with air. The lower flammability limit of a mixture of air and fuel is the lowest percentage volume of fuel in air which is easily ignited by combustion or a small flame or spark. A fuel product with a low flash point is more hazardous than one with a high flash point. Regardless of which end of the spectrum they are on, all fuel products must be dealt with very carefully.

The majority of solvents and fuels found around the home often have vapors that are much heavier than air and settle closer to the floor. As these dangerous vapors reach the floor, the odor from the fuel becomes more undetectable. At this point, once the vapor has settled, it can be ignited by an ignition source remote to the area where the flammable liquid is being used or has been spilled. Additionally, to make matters more dangerous, when the vapors are ignited, the flame will follow the vapors back to its source and possibly cause an explosion.

Sometimes flash-back fires can happen when the pilot flame to an appliance becomes the ignition point. An appliance that utilizes air in the room for combustion ensures that there will be a natural flow of air towards the flame, worsening the fire. Pilot flames in water heaters and furnaces are low to the floor, and are generally more hazardous. Other sources of ignition can cause explosions and fires, including matches, cigarettes, electrical appliances, light switches and even static electricity from walking across a carpeted floor.

The flammability of these liquids is often not realized by people using the products. A gallon can of gasoline has an energy equivalence of 45 pounds of dynamite. Less apparent to the average consumer is the hazard presented by chemicals and solvents readily available on the market. For example, retailers sell hair spray, nail polish and acetone in one-gallon containers.

Failure to Warn of Dangers

Many flammable liquids are inadequately labeled. A common theory of liability against the manufacturer of a flammable product is failure to warn of the risks of fires, especially flash-back fires. In addition, the instructions may be inadequate regarding how to safely use the product. With litigation having imposed liability, manufacturers have improved the warnings and instructions on their products. However, many products are inadequately labeled, especially when people are not knowledgeable about the potentially life-threatening dangers of vapor ignition and flash-back fires.

About Burn Injuries

The severity of a burn depends on how hot the skin gets and how long the burn lasts. The location is also important, because skin varies in thickness, water and oil content, the amount of subcutaneous fat, and the number of blood vessels from one location in the body to another. The diagnosis of a burn injury is based on how deep the injury is.

Massachusetts Workplace Burns

Massachusetts construction site workers, Massachusetts roofers and other Massachusetts workers responsible for transporting flammable materials are constantly at risk of suffering serious Massachusetts burn injuries while working. Massachusetts employers have an obligation to ensure the safety of their Massachusetts workers, including providing proper training, proper equipment and proper working conditions. If your Massachusetts employer failed to provide adequate and safe working conditions which resulted in a Massachusetts burn injury, you may be entitled to file a Massachusetts worker's compensation claim against your Massachusetts employer. You may also be entitled to recover money damages for your pain and suffering from a third party. Call our expert Massachusetts worker's compensation lawyers and expert Massachusetts personal injury lawyers today at 617-787-3700 for a free and confidential initial consultation.

Massachusetts Entrapment Burns

Oftentimes burns are the result of Massachusetts residents being trapped in a burning Massachusetts residential or commercial building. Frequently, these Massachusetts burn victims are injured due to another person’s failure to provide or maintain proper fire exits. A Massachusetts property owner has an obligation to provide proper means of ingress and egress, whether the Massachusetts property is residential or commercial. When Massachusetts property owners violate Massachusetts law, survivors of a Massachusetts fire may also suffer inhalation injuries due to inhalation of heat, toxins or smoke. These injuries can cause serious permanent damage to the lungs or other parts of your body. Failure to provide proper fire exits may entitle you to file a Massachusetts negligence claim against the negligent party. If that is the case, please contact our expert Massachusetts premises liability lawyers, our expert Massachusetts burn injury lawyers, our expert Massachusetts wrongful death lawyers and our expert Massachusetts personal injury lawyers today at 617-787-3700 or email us at

Our expert team of Boston, MA burn injury lawyers and Boston car accident injury lawyers can help you determine the source of the automobile fire, even if the source of the fire does not seem apparent. Call us today!

Possible Treatment

Short-term treatment of burns can include antibiotics, bandages, escharectomies and pressure garments. Skin grafts involve transplantation of skin from one area of the body to another. Some burn victims can be treated on an outpatient basis, while others require long term hospitalization and treatment lasting up to a year or more.

Choices about long term burn care depend on the severity of the burn injury as well as whether the patient suffered lung injury from inhaling smoke or chemicals and whether there were pre-existing medical problems.

Long-Term Care, Financial Resources and Compensation

Because burn injuries usually result from accidents or violence, many people have questions about whether or not they can be compensated. There are numerous potential sources of financial assistance and compensation for the victims of severe burn injuries.

Who is Liable for your Massachusetts Burn Injuries?

Various individuals or entities may be liable for your Massachusetts burn injury damages. When the Massachusetts burn injury is sustained while working, you may be entitled to file a Massachusetts worker’s compensation claim for your Massachusetts job related burn injuries.

If you or a loved one was injured in a fire at a commercial or residential building, the Massachusetts property owner may be liable for failing to provide adequate fire escapes or other means of safe egress. Injuries sustained by a child under the care of a babysitter or daycare provider may entitle the Massachusetts burn victim to file a Massachusetts negligence lawsuit against the responsible party. If a car fire has caused your Massachusetts burn injuries, the negligent Massachusetts driver who caused the collision or the negligent Massachusetts manufacturer responsible for the Massachusetts product defect may be held liable for your damages. If your injuries resulted from a faulty Massachusetts product, you may be entitled to recover for your injuries by filing a Massachusetts product liability claim.
