BURN INJURIES

We have extensive experience in representing victims who have been seriously burned by fire, liquids or other trauma.

A serious burn is life-changing. It is often a catastrophic event both physically and emotionally. All of us have had minor burns from cooking or other daily activities; a burn over large areas of the body multiplies that pain many times. A burn that causes substantial skin loss can be life-threatening, because it deprives the body of the organ it needs to regulate temperature and hydration, and keep out diseases. When burns heal, they can cause disfiguring scars that may restrict movement, may require surgical intervention, and will almost certainly change how others react to the victim.

American Burn Association statistics indicate that approximately 40,000 Americans are hospitalized each year for the treatment of serious burns, including 25,000 admitted to specialized burn centers. The association reports that the majority of burns takes place in the home, and is most often caused by direct contact with flames or scalding liquids.

Some common causes of burn injuries are:

  • House Fires (often due to cooking and smoking accidents or children playing with fire)
  • Car or Truck crashes
  • Unreasonably flammable clothing, furniture and other materials
  • Electrocution
  • Chemical exposure
  • Hot water scalding

A serious burn can take years to treat, and the victim may never fully recover. Initially, burn victims may require specialized hospitalization; later, they may face multiple plastic surgeries or other treatments to return the skin to as normal-looking an appearance and functional an organ as possible. Many victims may also need psychiatric treatment for the trauma of living with disfiguring scars. Medical care surrounding burn treatment is very expensive. When burns were caused by someone else's careless, reckless or deliberate behavior, victims have the right to hold them responsible for all of the damage they caused -- physical, emotional and financial.

If you or a loved one has been the victim of serious burn injuries, please contact Strauss Law Offices and we will contact you within twenty-four (24) hours to discuss your case.
