According to the American Burn Association (ABA), nearly 500,000 people are treated for burn injuries every year. With high-powered electronics, powerful automobiles, and more a part of all of our lives, it’s no wonder burns are so common. Unfortunately, some burns are caused by negligence and recklessness of another party or a defective product. If this has happened to you then you must contact a Pahrump burn injury attorney from ER Injury Attorneys.
What Are the Common Causes of Burn Injuries?
Burn injuries can happen in a number of ways. Over the years, our Pahrump personal injury lawyers have served clients that have received burns due to:
- Kitchen fires
- Faulty appliances
- Electrical fires due to substandard wiring
- House fires
- Barbecue grill accidents
- Defective products, such as smoke detectors and space heaters
- Fires stemming from car accidents
- Hot liquids or steam that cause scalding burns
- Mishandled fireworks
- Natural gas explosions
- Contact with certain chemicals
As you can see, burn injuries can happen in a variety of ways. In some cases, your injury may be the responsibility of another party. If you were burned at another person’s party, at a public venue, because of the direct actions of another party, or because of a faulty product then you may be entitled to compensation. Connecting with a Pahrump burn injury attorney is the best way to explore your options.
Are Burn Injuries Really Serious?
Many people dismiss the severity of burn injuries because they only have experience with first degree burns. While they can be painful, they’re also easy to treat and heal quickly. However, more serious burns can have lasting effects on your health and can even lead to wrongful death.
Our team has worked with clients that have suffered long term and permanent injuries from burns. In addition to the initial contact, the situation that caused the burn can result in additional bodily harm. Some of the clients our lawyers have represented have suffered:
- Lung damage due to chemical and/or smoke inhalation
- Epidermal damage that required skin grafts
- Bacterial infections that have led to sepsis
- Loss of feeling due to nerve damage
- Disfigurement from heavy scarring
- Chronic pain stemming from shortened skin, muscles, and tendons
In severe cases, burn injuries can diminish your quality of life for the rest of your days. If you or a loved one have suffered a severe burn due to a defective product or a negligent property owner, then contact our Pahrump burn injury attorney team immediately. Our experienced and trusted legal professionals will help make sure that you’re fairly compensated for your pain, suffering, medical bills, lost wages, and more.
