Burn Injuries Atlanta Burn Injury Attorney

Over two million burn injuries are reported every year in the United States.  Burn injuries can require long periods of intensive care, repeated surgical skin grafts, rehabilitation therapy, pain management, and, in some cases, even counseling for emotional distress that burn victims may experience as a result of their injuries. 

Burn injuries are typically caused by exposure to a wide variety of substances and external sources such as chemicals, friction, electricity, radiation, and extreme temperatures.  In the workplace, two of the more common types of burns are chemical burns and electrical burns:

Chemical Burns typically occur when skin is exposed to reactive chemical substances such as irritants or corrosive products including as acids, bases, oxidizers, solvents, reducing agents, and alkylants.  The exact symptoms of a chemical burn will depend on the chemicals involved, but symptoms frequently include itching, bleaching or darkening of the skin, burning sensations, difficulty breathing, coughing blood, and, in some cases, death.

Electrical Burns are typically caused by natural causes such as being struck by lightning; but they can also be caused by defective electrical wiring, electrical outlets, or  defective electrical products or tools.  Electrical burns usually cause superficial injuries to the skin, but they can cause serious internal injuries such as cardiac arrest or cardiac arrhythmia, and the extent of these injuries is not always obvious.

Other common causes of burn injuries in the workplace are:

              • Automobile Accidents
              • Construction Accidents 
              • Defective Products
              • Industrial Explosions
