Fighting Back After a Burn Injury

By Meyerkord & Meyerkord   Nov. 15, 2010 6:15p

Burn injuries are among the most severe, excruciating and catastrophic injuries a person can sustain. Burn injuries can occur from exposure to fire, electricity, hazardous chemicals, friction, light, radiation and other dangerous substances. They can result in serious damage to the body ranging from minor pains and reddened skin, to severely destroyed skin tissue, muscle tissue, major arteries, nerves, charred bones and can even leave a victim paralyzed or dead. In the United States alone there are more than 2.4 million burn injury incidents every year. If you've been injured in a burn accident a St. Louis burn injury attorney may be able to assist you in receiving compensation if another party is liable for your damages.

Some of the most common causes of burn injuries are the negligent acts of other parties or property owners, malfunctioning machinery supplied by manufacturers, electrical failures, house or building fires and recreational accidents. All of these can result in severe damage to a person's body and permanently alter their lifestyle quality. Whenever a property owner allows a hazard to exist without warning, which causes injury to a person, they can be held accountable for the damages such as medical costs, loss of wages, emotional damage and possibly even have to pay for reconstructive or cosmetic surgeries which would otherwise leave a victim more emotionally injured.
