Burn injuries can occur as a result of a wide variety of accidents, including:
- Explosions occurring in car, truck, bus or train accidents
- Warehouse fires or explosions; welding accidents; other workplace accidents
- Toxic chemical spills
- Fires at home, work or in retail establishments
- Radiation therapy burns, surgical errors, newborn oxygen tent fires and other medical malpractice circumstances
Whether you were burned in a car fire or because of carelessness during surgery, your treatment, therapy and recovery may involve:
- Possible infection
- Possible need for skin grafts
- Probable scarring
A third-degree thermal burn or a chemical burn may leave a sufferer with lasting complications, including chronic nerve pain. If smoke inhalation occurred, you may have lung damage that will require the care of specialists for some time. Early treatment by top-notch burn injury specialists is important for ensuring the best attainable outcome.
You may face a long uphill battle if you were coping with a burn injury after a motor vehicle accident or an on-the-job toxic chemical exposure accident. It is important to get an experienced, zealous personal injury lawyer on your side early in the recovery process. Accident reconstruction, insurance subrogation and other complex aspects of your recovery are best managed by an attorney who has obtained favorable outcomes for other clients in similar cases.
