Burn injuries are not just caused by fires, though that is a common cause. Other reasons why people suffer burns include explosions, chemical exposure, electrical accidents, truck or motorcycle accidents, defective products, work accidents and scalding water in a home or apartment.
The injuries caused by burns are usually severe and may include:
- Loss of sight, taste, hearing or smell
- Inhalation injuries
- Tissue, nerve and muscle damage
- Respiratory and cardiac arrest
- Internal bleeding
- Wrongful death
The burn victim will likely require long-term care such as skin grafts, physical therapy, pain management, cosmetic procedures and psychotherapy. This type of medical treatment is extremely expensive. You will need adequate compensation to cover the costs. You may also need to replace lost income.
