Fires and Burn Injuries
Fires and explosions can occur at the workplace, in the kitchen, while driving, almost anywhere, causing catastrophic burn injuries. And while fire is most often the cause of burn injuries, chemicals, hot liquids, high voltage electricity, and even steam can also be responsible for serious burns.
Burns are classified according to the amount of affected skin. For example, a third degree burn affects all three layers of skin. The even more severe fourth degree burn destroys all three layers of skin, as well as muscle and bone below the skin. Far too often, the accidents causing severe burn injuries are the result of someone else’s negligence or disregard for other’s safety. Recovery from third and fourth degree burns can take a long time, or never truly happen. The burn injury victim is left with devastating pain, permanent disability, burn scarring that causes disfigurement, and of course significant medical expenses.
