Burn Injuries: Causes and Types

Generally, burns are any external injuries to the flesh or skin caused by a form of heat, electricity, or radiation. First, second, and third-degree are common terms for the severity of a burn. First-degree burns are often the least painful, while fourth-degree burns may lead to nerve damage and bone or muscle injury.

Many burn injuries occur during car or truck accidents, while others may happen as the result of workplace accidents, construction accidents, unsafe premises, or defective products.

Specific causes of burn injuries can include

  • Scalding from water or steam
  • House fires or other structural fires
  • Electrical burns
  • Flash burns from bright light or intense heat
  • Thermal burns through contact with heat (ovens, irons etc.)
  • Flammable clothing
  • Chemical burns
  • Radiation
  • Recreational fires (fireworks, sunburn, accidents at theme parks, restaurants, hotels, etc.)

Many burns lead to the following complications:

  • Shock
  • Blistering
  • Nerve damage
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Damage to the vascular system
  • Blood loss
  • Organ failure
  • Infection, sepsis
  • Amputation
  • Death

Burn accidents caused by the negligence of others may involve the failure to warn of danger, failure to maintain property in a safe condition, product defects, and other hazards. As your attorneys, we will perform a thorough, independent investigation of the accident.

Kramer Law consults with experts such as accident reconstructionists to determine liability and vigorously pursue all routes of compensation. We have successfully recovered vital financial compensation for hundreds of injured clients in the Orlando area. Let us help you.

Workers’ Compensation and Burn Injuries

Workers’ compensation is a form of insurance in place for workplace injuries, but it operates with the insurer’s client (the employer) and not with the employee in mind. Call Kramer Law at 1-855-Kramer-Now (1-855-572-6376) before speaking to an insurance adjuster concerning a burn injury.

Free Consultation About Your Burn Case

Serious burns may require ongoing medical care and treatment, such as skin grafting, hospitalization, and rehabilitation. Because these injuries often involve psychological trauma, emotional counseling is often needed. As your Orlando personal injury lawyers, we will seek full compensation, taking into account any future medical treatment.

Florida has statutes of limitation restricting the amount of time a person can take legal action in a personal injury case. An aggressive and effective attorney needs time closest to the injury to gather evidence and build the case.

At Kramer Law, all it takes is a phone call to begin that process. Contact us as soon as possible: 855-Kramer-Now (855-572-6376).
