Over half a million people in the United States suffered from burn injuries that required medical treatment. According to the American Burn Association 4000 of those die.
Burns can cause serious problems in your life that require just compensation by parties that should be held responsible. The Abronson law firm can handle a variety of burn injury cases with success and will help you get a fair recovery.
Causes of Burn Injuries
Burn injuries can result from flammable clothes, defective products such as malfunctioning electronics, electrocution, and a variety of types of fires. Some of the types of accidents that we handle at Abronson Law include:
- -Smoke inhalation
- -Flammable liquid
- -Refinery explosions
- -Automobile fires
- -Smoke detector malfunctions
- -Industrial accidents
- -Flammable clothing
- -Electrical burns
- -Chemical burns
- -Building Fires
There are different types of burns, including superficial (first degree), partial thickness (second degree), and full thickness (third degree) burns. Superficial burns are mild and produce symptoms such as pain and redness. Partial thickness burns affect two layers of skin and usually blister, causing swelling and pain. Full thickness burns are more severe and damage all layers of your skin. These typically result in prolonged hospitalization, skin grafting, and permanent scarring. Fourth-degree burns extend deeply into the subcutaneous tissue, sometimes involving muscle, fascia, or bone and are the most severe type of burn.
Burns are easy to see, but injuries from inhaling smoke are not. Sometimes inhalation injury does not show up until 24 hours after the exposure. Inhalation injuries are the leading cause of death in fires. The three types include heat inhalation, toxic inhalation, and smoke inhalation.
If you’ve been seriously burned because of someone else’s negligence, you should be compensated. Severe burn injuries can ruin lives by
- Permanently destroying nerves
- Causing horribly disfiguring scarring with associated emotional and social problems
- Causing excruciating pain
- Necessitating high medical costs
Victims of burn cases are subject to a fault-based legal system. This means that you must be able to find somebody liable in order to receive compensation for your injuries. This is not always easy, and identifying the liable party often requires involving an experienced attorney as soon as possible. The lawyers at the Abronson law firm understand the ins and outs of burn cases and will be aggressive in fighting for you to get the financial compensation you deserve, applying legal theories of premises liability, product liability, negligence, and/or statutory violations.
To prove liability in a burn accident, your lawyer must show that the defendant owed you a duty of care; that the duty was breached; that the defendant was responsible for causing the injury; and that you suffered damages as a result of the injury. The lawyers at Abronson Law Offices will establish these factors by conducting an extensive investigation including interviewing witnesses, examining records, making an on-site investigation, and more.
In California, the law limits how long you have to make a claim of liability and demand for compensation. It is important that you contact a personal injury attorney quickly after the incident so we can protect your legal rights.
