Burn injuries can be sustained in any number of ways, from electrical fires and explosions to defective products and flammable liquids. One factor that remains constant in these incidents is the serious physical, mental and financial toll that can come with a severe burn.
Nearly 2.4 million burn injuries are reported in the U.S. every year, according to the TOMA Foundation for Burned Children. Of those whose injuries require hospitalization, more than one quarter suffer burns covering more than 25 percent of their bodies. That's not to mention the costs related to severe burn injuries, which hover around $7.5 billion per year.
If you have suffered burn injuries as the result of an accident, you should seek the counsel of an experienced personal injury attorney to help you determine whether you may be entitled to recover damages from the responsible party. It is not enough to simply show that you have been burned, but also that someone else was at fault and is liable for your injury. Potential relief includes money damages to cover medical and related expenses as well as loss of wages and pain and suffering.
