Common Causes of Burn Injuries

Burn injuries can arise from various circumstances, each presenting unique challenges in pursuing a legal claim. Common causes may include:

  • Workplace Accidents: Industrial settings, construction sites, and other workplaces pose a heightened risk of burn injuries because of the presence of hazardous materials and machinery.
  • Motor Vehicle Accidents: Collisions and accidents involving automobiles, trucks, and motorcycles can result in fires and explosions, causing severe burn injuries.
  • Defective Products: Malfunctioning or defective products, including electrical appliances, can lead to fires and burns, holding manufacturers liable for the damages.
  • Premises Liability: Property owners have a commitment to maintain safe environments. Negligence leading to fires, explosions, or chemical exposures may result in burn injuries and subsequent legal actions.
  • Electrical Accidents: Faulty wiring, poorly maintained electrical systems, or negligence in handling electricity can cause severe burns.

Common Injuries in Burn Injury Accidents

Burn injuries vary in severity and can result in a range of physical and psychological consequences. Common injuries may include:

  • First-Degree Burns: Superficial burns affect only the outer layer of the skin, causing redness and minor pain.
  • Second-Degree Burns: Affecting both the outer layer and the layer beneath, these burns result in blisters, swelling, and increased pain.
  • Third-Degree Burns: Extending through all layers of the skin, these burns can cause permanent damage, including charred or white skin and nerve damage.
  • Inhalation Injuries: Inhaling smoke or toxic fumes during a fire can lead to respiratory issues, including lung damage and other health complications.
  • Psychological Trauma: Burn injuries often have lasting psychological effects, like anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

What Damages Could Be Recovered in a Burn Injury Claim?

Seeking compensation for burn injuries involves a comprehensive assessment of the damages suffered. Potential damages may include:

  • Medical Expenses: Compensation for previous and future medical treatments, surgeries, medications, and therapy related to burn injuries.
  • Lost Wages: Reimbursement for income lost because of the inability to work during recovery, as well as potential future earnings affected by the injuries.
  • Pain and Suffering: Damages for physical and emotional distress caused by burn injuries, including the impact on the quality of life.
  • Property Damage: Compensation for damage to personal belongings, such as clothing and personal items, during the incident.
  • Wrongful Death Damages: In cases where a burn injury leads to the tragic loss of life, surviving family members could seek compensation for funeral expenses, loss of companionship, and more.
