Understanding Burn Injuries

Burns range in severity, however, many types of burns can be catastrophic and lead to infection, permanent scarring and disfigurement. Some of the most severe burns are caused by chemicals and electricity, and for children scalding liquids are the most common cause of burn injuries.

While a sunburn or small scald can usually be treated at home, deeper or widespread burns require immediate medical attention and many must be treated at a specialized burn unit. Often, large wounds require skin grafts.

Seek medical assistance when:

  • You experience increased pain, swelling, redness or discharge from the burned area.
  • A burn that doesn't heal after several weeks.
  • New or unexplained symptoms.

Seek emergency medical assistance for burns that cover a major joint, the hands, feet, face, groin, or buttocks. Also visit an emergency room if you experience chemical burns, electrical burns, third or fourth-degree burns, or difficulty breathing.

Seek Legal Representation

Serious burns are often caused by hot liquid, steam, fire, hot metal or glass, electrical currents, or chemicals such as acids or paint thinner. Burn injuries are often associated with workplace accidents, as well as premises liability cases.

If you have suffered serious burns during the course of your employment or while visiting another's private or commercial property, you are urged to contact my firm for assistance. As a seasoned injury lawyer, I am fully aware of the medical, financial, emotional and psychological effects of a burn injury. I can review your case and explain which legal strategies I would employ to pursue maximum compensation on your behalf.
