Burn Hazards

Although burns can happen when a person is not careful, there are times when another person's negligence, can be injured by a burn. Some of the burn hazards include:

  • Thermal burns – caused by direct contact with flames, exposure to radiation, or exposure to excessive heat from fire, steam, hot liquids and hot objects.
  • Chemical burns – caused by contact with dangerous chemicals. Acids or other caustic materials that can severely damage the skin.
  • Electrical burns – caused by contact with electrical wires or components. Unregulated, unmonitored, or faulty electrical lines or cords can be the causes of these types of burns.
  • Radiation burns – caused by exposure to nuclear sources or overexposure to ultraviolet sources. One common cause is overexposure to Radiation treatment.

Types of Burns

There are different categories of burn injuries that depend on the severity and cause. Three types of serious burns include:

  • First degree burns – this is the type of burn you might receive in your kitchen at home. They involve only the outermost layer of skin. They are red and very painful when touched. Swelling, pain, peeling skin, and blisters are common and shock can also occur.
  • Second degree burns – typically involves blisters and can be red or white in appearance. These burns can completely destroy the top layer of the skin and can result in scarring or require a skin graft. In many cases, sensation in the area of the burn is diminished.
  • Third degree burns – these burns destroy all the layers of the skin. Healing time is much slower because there are no remaining skin cells to repair the skin. Even with skin grafts, third degree burns typically result in extensive and permanent scarring.

Physical Damage

If you or someone you love has suffered burn injuries as a result of someone else’s negligence or recklessness, then you may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, loss of wages, and psychological treatment. The physical aftermath and recovery of a burn can take many months or even years requiring multiple surgeries, therapies, and counseling. Some of the possible damage includes:

  • Excessive pain
  • Scarring
  • Swelling
  • Skin discoloration
  • Disfigurement
  • Psychological damage
  • Death

Client Reviews
After being involved and a five car accident I contacted Casey Stevens law firm. I was given his number by a fellow coworker at my job who had used him in the past and was very satisfied with his services. The car accident included myself my husband and my son, the accident was determined to be the fault of two drivers involved in the accident. Casey personally came to my home the next day and said down with me and my family at the kitchen table and went over all the events of the accident. There were months and months of physical therapy, doctor visits injections and while my son had to have his mouth wired after having his jaw broke in three places. Casey and his staff worked continuously on our case and after it was all said and done, they where able to get us over $300,000 in damages. I really want to Thank Casey Stevens and his staff for always being available for phone calls and answering any questions I might have. I will continue to recommend potential clients to Casey Stevens law firm. Nina F
