Most of us never have to endure the suffering of severe burns. The pain and damage left behind are excruciating, and many victims never recover full function again. In severe cases, death can result either from the burns or from an infection that sets in so easily on burned skin. When you have a loved one with serious burns or who has lost their life due to negligent burns, you need a law firm to provide experienced, determined and compassionate help.
Burn Injury Lawsuits Have Many Causes
There are many ways a person gets burned, either accidentally or through negligence, that can result in a lawsuit. Car accidents, house fires and chemical burns are just a few. When a serve burn injury occurs, you need a qualified lawyer to determine who is at fault and what compensation is due.
The lifelong effects of severe burns are both physical and emotional. Burns are deeply painful and often leave massive scarring. This scarring is not only devastating cosmetically, but very often affects the nerves, tendons and muscles in ways that never heal properly. The injuries can cause a lifetime of suffering and medical needs for the victim.
In addition to the medical expenses and the physical pain that results from severe burns, a person can be left emotionally and psychologically scarred, requiring extensive care and counseling. Finally, the loss of income due to injuries, surgeries and lasting damages can be considerable.
Severe burn injuries can come from many different sources in our home and work life. Some of the more common ones include:
- Auto accidents
- Dangerous workplace injuries, industrial accidents or product safety violations
- Apartment building fires, including lack of fire extinguishers or inadequate fire exits
