Yes, absolutely, you are entitled to damages for your burns. Also, you would be entitled to damages for pain and suffering which are generally a multiple of your medical expenses. Your cause of action would be negligence at the least and possibly gross negligence which would also entitle you to punitive damages due to the reckless nature of the tenant's actions. I would first send a demand letter to the tenant and only if the tenant does not comply with your demand would you need to file your suit.
