Severe Burn Injuries
Burn injuries can occur in numerous ways. Home fires, exploding consumer electronics or exposure to hot water from a faulty water heater are just a few examples that can take place in everyday life. Additionally, vehicle collisions can cause an explosion or fire, especially in a rear-end crash. The risk of fire or explosion always increases if either vehicle’s gas tank is damaged in a crash. Trucks hauling dangerous chemicals or explosives can cause devastating burn injuries when they collide with another vehicle.
Victims of severe burn injuries generally must confront expensive, long-term medical care and extended time off work, as well as the physical and emotional impact of permanent scarring, disfigurement, or even disability.
