Types of Burn Injuries, Causes, and Liability
A burn injury may constitute any harm that results in significant skin damage. There is a wide range of incidents that can cause burn injuries. Some of the most common types of burn injuries include chemical burns, electrical burns, or burns caused by fires.
A burn injury can result from an array of harmful situations. When a burn injury is the subject of a legal claim, there could be many different people who are liable for the victim’s damages: employers, drivers, product manufacturers, and property owners are just some people who may be at fault when burn injuries occur. Our legal team can evaluate the details of your case to identify a liable party and hold them accountable for their negligence.

Burn Injury Treatment and Long-Term Effects
Burn injuries can require costly treatment and may leave victims with permanent scarring, tissue damage, and psychological distress. To recover from the effects of a burn injury, a victim may require surgery, medication, medical devices, therapy, and other extensive medical attention. Burn injury victims may also sustain related complications (such as infections) which will require additional treatment outside of typical burn care.
Burn Injury Damages and Compensation
Medical bills will often constitute the majority of financial damages that result from a burn injury. In addition to those costs, other financial damages that result from a burn injury may include lost wages, travel costs, and other peripheral expenses involved in recovery.
Victims of burn injuries often sustain significant non-economic damages in addition to the financial effects of the harm. Burn injuries can cause substantial physical, outward-appearing damage which can cause victims to experience feelings of self-consciousness, anxiety, and depression. A person may also experience loss of purpose, loss of enjoyment of life, and relationship strain that can result from any injury.
