The Severity of Burn Injuries
Burn injuries are among the most painful injuries one can experience. Burns cause damage to the nerves, resulting in intense levels of pain. Severe burns can cause a host of other health problems. Permanent damage to muscles, tissues, nerves, respiratory system, and bones is possible.
Most severe burn victims require extensive hospitalization and rehabilitation, and many third-degree burns require skin grafting. Without the protective layer of skin to keep out bacteria, burn victims are prone to infections. Unfortunately, thousands of these people die each year.
Causes of Burn Injuries and Electrocution
Thousands of burn injuries are reported each year. Many of these injuries are preventable but happen due to the negligence practices of businesses and individuals. Although many burns are caused by contact with fire, other burns include the following:
- Acid burns
- Chemical burns
- Thermal burns
- Electrical burns
- Burns caused by explosions, car accidents, etc.
Electrocution can cause death by electric shock. Our attorneys have represented the families of victims who were electrocuted as the result of the following:
- Defective equipment
- Failure of power company to maintain power lines
- Failure of company to meet or follow safety guidelines
