Burns are among the most painful types of injuries and victims are sometimes left with permanent scars even after surgical intervention. Types of burns include:
Thermal burns — caused by flames and other hot objects
Scalds — caused by boiling water or other hot liquids
Electrical burns — caused by defective products
Chemical burns — caused by chemicals and volatile combinations of chemicals
Burns from explosions — caused by car accidents, industrial/construction site accidents or accidents in the home
In addition to the physical injuries, there may be serious non-physical consequences to a major burn injury as well. Those with serious burns in visible areas may be left with highly visible scars that can understandably cause serious social and emotional problems for its victims.
At M&Y Personal Injury Lawyers, we obtain just compensation for our clients who have been injured as a result of a bad burn, which includes compensation for both the physical and non-physical damages associated with a burn injury.
