There are very few injuries more painful and serious than severe burns. Burns, while often fatal, those who survive have a long, excruciating and expensive road to recovery. Burn injuries often occur when a victim comes in contact with flame, corrosive chemicals, hot objects, scalding fluids, exposure to radiation and electrocution and is often due to the negligence of some other party. Victims are often left with physical and psychological scars and burns can require years of hospitalization, doctors visits and physical therapy.
If you or someone you love should be the victim of a burn injury caused by someone else’s neglect or recklessness, you may be eligible for compensation to cover your medical bills, lost time from work and pain and suffering.
According to The American Burn Association National Burn Repository, in 2011, burn injuries receiving medical treatment were 450,000, including 3500 burn deaths from residential fires and 500 from other sources, such as motor vehicle and aircraft crashes, and contact with electricity, chemicals or hot liquids.
Fire and burn injuries represent 1% of the incidence of injuries and 2% of the total costs of injuries, or $7.5 billion each year (Finkelstein et al. 2006).
