What Are Common Causes of Burn Injury Accidents?
The most common causes of burn injuries include:
- Open flames / fire
- Scalding hot steam, water or beverages
- Lit cigarettes, irons or coals
- Defective electronic appliances or electric wires
- Harmful chemicals or fumes
- Radiation exposure
- Lightning strikes
Depending on the severity of injuries – multiple surgeries and long-term medical care and therapy may be necessary for a full and healthy recovery. At Lerner and Rowe, we have a proven track record of getting you the financial compensation you deserve to help ease your burdens. We provide excellent client care, and the integrity of our attorneys fighting for your case is unparalleled – we won’t cut corners, and we won’t quit.
The damages that a burn victim faces are not only physical, but psychological as well. Being burned to such a traumatizing degree takes an extreme toll on the victim’s self-esteem and can potentially cause depression. The compensation you may receive could cover therapy and psychological care to help the victim as well as the victim’s family.
Burns vary by degrees – a first degree burn is the most common, and affects only the epidermis (the outer layer of skin). It’s similar to a sunburn, without the blisters, and healing usually occurs in 3-5 days.
A second degree burn is often pink or red, painful, and may appear wet. It affects the entire epidermis and upper layers of the dermis (second layers of skin). It will usually heal in 10 – 21 days.
Third degree burns involve all layers of skin, and damage affects the subcutaneous tissues. The affected area may look black or white, and will be dry, leathery, and can be very painful. However, nerve endings can be affected as well, and may reduce or eliminate pain all together.
