Burn injuries can result from any fire, chemical, flame or heat source. Often these occur from fires, candles, matches, cigarettes, stoves, extremely hot liquids, dangerous chemicals, etc. Depending on the severity of a burn injury, a person can suffer extreme pain, permanent disfiguration, and/or disability.
There are three main classifications of burn injuries: thermal burns (from external heat sources), chemical burns (from acids, solvents, etc), and electrical burns. The severity of burn injuries can range from first degree to third degree, depending upon how many layers of skin the injury burns through and the amount of body surface affected.
Victims that endure burn injuries can suffer immense physical and emotional trauma. Third degree burns can permanently disfigure a victim, leaving them with lifelong emotional distress. Survivors might face long-term medical care, physical therapy and/or psychological therapy. Burn injuries can also be fatal, leaving the victim's family with great suffering and losses.
A personal injury lawyer can greatly assist victims of burn injuries and/or their families. If the burn occurred from any form of negligence by another, an experienced injury attorney can help ensure medical expenses are covered and proper care is given. Burn injury lawyers can present a case on behalf of the victim to help get the maximum recovery of damages. An attorney can also handle all dealings with a victim's insurance company, to help alleviate stress and unnecessary complications.
