What to Expect After Suffering a Severe Burn Injury

The costs of a burn injury can be staggering. In most cases, a severe burn will necessitate a trip to the emergency room and may result in hospitalization. The victim might require operations ranging from skin grafts and plastic surgery to repair the damage to emergency amputation of a limb that has been burned beyond any hope of recovery. Following such procedures, the victim may face a long and slow period of recovery and may end up being permanently disabled.

Common Causes of Burn Injuries

Common causes of burn injuries may include:

  • Workplace Accidents: Burns can occur in industrial settings, construction sites, or other workplaces due to chemical exposure, explosions, or electrical malfunctions.
  • Motor Vehicle Accidents: Car crashes, motorcycle accidents, or truck collisions can result in fires or explosions, causing severe burn injuries.
  • Defective Products: Products with design flaws, manufacturing defects, or inadequate warnings can lead to burns. This includes faulty electrical appliances, flammable materials, and other consumer goods.
  • Electrical Malfunctions: Faulty wiring, electrical failures, or inadequate maintenance can cause electrical burns, especially in residential or commercial buildings.
  • Scalding: Burns caused by hot liquids or steam, often occurring in premises like restaurants, hotels, or rental properties due to negligence.
  • Chemical Exposure: Industrial accidents involving exposure to hazardous chemicals can result in chemical burns, impacting workers and nearby residents.

What Damages Could Be Recovered in a Burn Injury Claim?

Burn injuries often lead to extensive medical treatment, rehabilitation, and long-term consequences. Potential damages may include:

  • Medical Expenses: Recovering the costs of emergency medical treatment, hospital stays, surgeries, medication, and ongoing medical care.
  • Lost Wages: Compensation for income lost because of the inability to work during recovery and potential future lost earning capacity.
  • Pain and Suffering: Seeking damages for physical and emotional distress, pain, and suffering caused by the burn injuries.
  • Disfigurement and Scarring: Compensation for the visible impact of burn injuries, addressing the emotional and psychological toll of disfigurement.
  • Rehabilitation Costs: Coverage for rehabilitation and therapy to maximize recovery and improve the quality of life.
  • Property Damage: Compensation for damage to property, like clothing or belongings, during the incident.
  • Loss of Consortium: Addressing the impact of the injury on personal relationships and family dynamics.
