Protecting the Rights of Clients with Serious Burn Injuries
Burns are some of the most painful injuries you can experience. Severe burn injuries can cause disfigurement and/or disabilities, as well as leave victims with overwhelming medical bills and other losses. Many burns happen because someone else acted in a negligent manner, and negligent parties should be held liable for the burn injuries they cause. If you were in an accident, contact a burn injury lawyer in Orlando at The Law Offices of Jerrod Paul, P.A. for help today.
Causes and Effects of Burn Injuries
Burns can happen in many situations, including:
- Contact with hot surfaces
- Contact with overly hot liquids
- Electrical injuries
No matter how a burn occurs, the aftermath of the accident can be difficult. First-degree burns can often be treated at home, but more severe burns should always be evaluated by a medical professional. Burn injuries are highly prone to infections, which can delay healing and can even be life-threatening.
Victims of serious burns might have to spend time in a burn center, where their injury can be regularly cleaned and monitored. Treatment might include skin grafts and other painful procedures. Even with the best treatment, many burn victims are left with disfiguring scars, or they may even need to have surgical amputations. Burns can keep you out of work for an extended time – or even permanently.
