Burn injuries have the potential to be catastrophic. Not only can they be extremely physically painful, but they can also result in significant, lasting damage, including permanent disfigurement and substantial emotional and psychological trauma. Survivors of catastrophic burns may have to endure lengthy medical treatment, reconstructive surgery, and physical therapy costing tens of thousands of dollars, placing an enormous financial burden on a victim and his or her family.
Burn injuries can arise from any of the following:
- Property owner negligence
- Defective products
- Industrial accidents
- Construction site accidents
- Refinery explosions
If you have sustained a burn injury in a preventable accident, you have the right to pursue compensation for the losses you have suffered. While nothing can undo all that you have suffered, The Daspit Law Firm stands ready to help you obtain the financial resources you need to offset the cost of your treatment and compensate you for your pain and suffering.
Types of Burns
- Thermal burns, caused by flames or hot objects
- Chemical burns, caused by exposure to corrosive chemicals
- Scalds, caused by boiling liquids
- Electrical burns, caused by defective electrical wiring
Many burn injuries are sustained in the workplace and usually involve serious violations of OSHA workplace safety standards. Workplace burn injuries are responsible for between 20 and 25 percent of all serious burns requiring hospitalization, and account for approximately five percent of all workplace fatalities.
