Understanding the Severity of Fire Accidents

By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC  Feb. 4, 2011 10:41a

Have you been injured in a fire or explosion that resulted in severe burn injuries? Burn injuries are extremely painful and dangerous types of injuries that have great potential to cause permanent physical as well as emotional and psychological damage to the victim of the accident. Depending upon the severity of the injuries, a person can lose functionality of limbs or bodily functions, may be paralyzed, or could even lose one or several limbs to amputation that is necessary to saving the victim's life. On top of these types of injuries, surface damage to the skin can be in dire need of skin grafts, which can be highly expensive, especially in combination with other medical procedures meant to save the victim's life. If you or a loved one has suffered severe burn injuries a St. Louis personal injury attorney may be able to help you fight for compensation from the parties responsible for causing your accident.

Burn injuries can occur in a variety of different ways from many different sources including extreme or dangerous exposure to chemicals, light, radiation, heat, friction and flames. Gas explosions, chemical spills, defective products, and other dangerous conditions can all cause severe burns to a person's body, resulting in catastrophic damage. Without the compensation that could be received from a personal injury claim, the victim may be burdened with not only their physical injuries and emotional trauma, but the entirety of the medical expenses intended to save their life.
