A Burn Accident Can Change Your Life Forever
If you, or someone you love, are the victim of a burn injury caused by someone else’s negligence, burn injury lawyers may be able to help. Attorneys at the injury law firm Burnetti, P.A. understand the devastation that a burn injury may cause, and aggressively represent injured clients so that they may receive maximum compensation.
The American Burn Association reports in their 2007 Fact Sheet that 500,000 people receive treatment every year for a burn injury, and 4,000 people lose their life.
Burn injuries may be caused by:
- Smoke inhalation (breathing in hot air caused by a fire)
- Electrocution/electrical burns (exposure to high volts of electricity, including power lines and electrical sockets)
- Chemical burns (exposure to industrial chemicals – or even strong household chemicals)
- Thermal burns (exposure to high temperature such as scalding liquids or hot metal)
- Radiation burns (x-ray and UV)
- Explosions (including the result of faulty mechanical equipment or an accident)
- Defective products
- Poorly manufactured parts
The results of a burn accident can be devastating and may result in one of the three levels of burn classifications:
First Degree Burn:
A first degree burn is the least serious of all burns, and involves only the outer layer of skin. The symptoms of a first degree burn are generally mild, and may include red skin, swelling and pain.
Second Degree Burn:
A second degree burn occurs when the burn exceeds the first layer of skin and reaches the second layer. Second degree burn injuries may result in blisters on the skin, a red and sometimes splotchy appearance, swelling and intense pain.
Third Degree Burn:
Injuries resulting from a third degree burn are the most serious. The burn injury victim may experience damage to all layers of the skin, plus muscle, tissue and bone. They may also experience difficult breathing or other toxic effects resulting from smoke inhalation.
A burn injury that is the result of an accident or someone else’s negligence can be devastating. The injuries may result in:
- Mental anguish
- Long-term care
- Medical bills
- Other burn related expenses
