When we think about injuries, we typically think about broken bones. But millions of people suffer burns each year, with hundreds of thousands of them needing medical care. Most common burns are caused by:
- Car accidents
- Explosions caused by gas leaks
- Hot water
- Accidents involving electricity
- Gas spills
Burns are painful, and their treatment is often long and involved. The most serious burns can require extensive reconstructive surgery, leaving burn victims with hefty medical bills and serious pain and disfigurement that impair their quality of life. As a burn victim, you should focus on recovering from the physical, psychological and financial impact of your injuries.
That's why it's particularly frustrating when the burns are the result of someone else's careless action, negligence or a flaw in a product. In those situations, the law provides an opportunity for burn victims to be compensated for pain and suffering, current and future medical costs and other issues related to the burn's impact on their quality of life.
