Pursuing Justice for Burn Injury Victims

Burn Injuries

Burn injuries can be among the most mentally and emotionally painful injuries one can sustain, and sadly, they often cause devastating damage to the victim's body. Second- and third-degree burns can result in substantial tissue, muscle, and nerve damage, and may even leave the individual paralyzed or in a coma.

While some burns will heal, others will leave the victim with permanent scarring and disfigurement, or may even require a procedure such as skin grafts or a surgical amputation.

A burn injury can have life-changing consequences for the victim, potentially resulting in permanent disability and disfigurement.

These injuries are all too common in the United States, with 2.4 million Americans suffering some type of burn injury every year. Approximately 650,000 of these cases require some form of medical treatment, 75,000 result in hospitalization, and 12,000 result in death for the victim. In addition, it is estimated that 1 million people will suffer partial or full disability due to their burn injuries.

These injuries are caused in a myriad of ways, from house or building fires, to recreational accidents such as fireworks or campfire mishaps, to chemical or electrical burns, auto accidents. While some burns are the result of unavoidable accidents, others can be directly attributed to the negligence of another party.
