Burn injuries are extremely serious injuries that often require ongoing treatment and can lead to life-threatening secondary health concerns.
Common Causes of Burn Injuries
While many burn injuries are caused by fires, others are not. Some of the most common causes of burn injuries include:
Accidents on the Job
Your Financial, Physical, and Emotional Damages
If you’ve suffered a serious burn as a result of someone else’s negligence, the physical, financial, and emotional damages you’ve suffered are likely to immense and can include:
Burns often cause secondary health concerns, such as serious infections in the underlying area. The greater area the burn covers, the more likely that life-threatening complications will arise. Your medical costs may begin with emergency treatment at the scene of the accident and emergency transportation from the scene and continue on to surgeries and follow-up care, specialized treatments for burns (that are generally provided at burn units), hospitalization, ongoing treatment from doctors and specialists, physical therapy, prescription medications, and much more. Burn victims are often required to endure treatments far into their futures (as their burns heal and lead to ongoing complications, such as thick, rigid scarring that impedes movement).
Burns is as slow to heal as they are incredibly painful. If you’ve suffered a serious burn, you’re going to be off the job for a protracted period at best. Depending upon how serious your burn is and where it is, you may face diminished earnings into your future (if you’re able to return to work at all). Further, the career you’ve worked so hard to build could be upended by your burn injury. Because your career is so integral to your sense of self, a loss of this nature can be emotionally devastating.
Pain and Suffering
The physical and emotional pain and suffering associated with a serious burn is difficult to overstate. The terror associated with being burned is universal, and living through this experience can lead to PTSD-like symptoms that often require professional therapy to manage. The physical pain associated with serious burns is well documented and impossible to refute. In fact, a significant portion of the treatment for burns focuses on pain relief.
Recovering your full range of damages can help you regain your health to the best of your ability.
