What You Should Know About Burn Injuries

By Jackson, Allen & Williams  Oct. 27, 2011 4:51p

Some of the most serious injuries one can sustain are burn injuries. Unfortunately, these are often a result of reckless or negligent conduct on the part of another such as a manufacturer, landlord, or employer. Burn injuries can cause devastating financial repercussions to the victim and family, whether it is an electrical, thermal, chemical, or other type of burn. If severe enough, hospitalization, skin graft surgery, plastic surgery, and rehabilitative treatment may be necessary, all of which will need to be financed. One will also have to take into consideration the fact that there may be a loss of income while the recovery process is ongoing.

Burn Injuries: The Facts

Thermal burns are the most common type of burn injury which results from contact with heat sources like hot metals, steam, fire, hot liquids, and objects. Any type of prolonged exposure to flames can produce serious third degree burns and if exposed to smoke inhalation, one can experience additional serious complications. Common causes of burn injuries include:

  • Defective machinery
  • Car accidents
  • Water heater fires
  • Faulty electrical wires
  • Explosions
  • Flammable liquids or clothing
  • Structural or home fires
  • Industrial products

Recalls happen periodically for products that have caused fire hazards and burn injuries and this is valuable method for companies to protect consumers while at the same time, shielding themselves from personal injury lawsuits.
