What are some common causes of burn injuries?
We’ve handled all types of cases that involve burn injuries. Some of the most common types of accidents involve:
Scalds: Clients being scalded from spilled drinks and food, stoves, tap water, and even space heaters. Children under 4 have a high percentage of scalding burn injuries.
Fires: There are many house fires that cause burn injuries.
Car accidents: In some circumstances, cars catch on fire burning their passengers during the accident.
Faulty Electricity: Poor electricity can cause fires in your home, car, and even businesses. If someone’s electricity isn’t up to code, they could be liable for your electricution injuries.
Types of burn injuries
Some burn injuries are more complicated than others. Burns are medically defined in three types: First-degree, Second-degree, and Third-degree burns. Third-degree burns are the most severe type of burns you can sustain. The severity of your burn will directly determine the amount of your settlement.
