Dedicated Lawrence Burn Injury Lawyers

Recovering from a burn injury is a difficult and challenging process. Burn injuries can leave permanent physical scarring and disability for the victim as well as emotional scarring for the victim and his or her family. The Lawrence burn injury lawyers at Joseph, Hollander & Craft can help you and your family through the difficult process of recovery.

Common Causes of Burn Injuries

It is estimated that approximately 500,000 burn victims seek medical treatment every year. Many of these burn injuries are caused by fires and explosions resulting from the negligent acts or omissions of another person. Some examples of incidents that result in burn injuries are listed below.

Vehicle Accidents and Collisions

Many motor vehicle accidents and trucking accidents involve a fire that causes burn injuries to victims. Negligent behaviors such as distracted driving, speeding, driving under the influence, and drowsy driving can lead to a motor vehicle collision that results in a fire. Mechanical failures in cars, semi-trucks, buses, and other motor vehicles can result in fires causing burn injuries as well. These failures can be the result of defective tires, brakes, steering components, air bags, fuel systems, and accelerators.

Defective and Dangerous Products

Consumer product manufacturers have an obligation to create safe products intended for use by the public. The manufacturers, designers, and retailers of defective products must also adequately warn the public if any of their products are determined to be unsafe. Malfunctioning products are often the cause of severe burn injuries, for instance, electrical products, acids, flammable materials, and toys can cause burn injuries if they are defective.

Structure Fires

Building fires can be attributed to negligent landlords, owners, and property managers. When rules and regulations are ignored, such as the use of faulty wiring, dangerous appliances, or faulty smoke detectors, fires can happen and innocent people can be injured. This also includes construction negligence that causes electrical burns, fires, and other harmful incidents.

If you or your loved one has experienced a burn as a result of someone else’s fault, let JHC’s Lawrence burn injury lawyers help you pursue justice and compensation.

Burns Injury Classifications

Burns are separated into classifications based on severity. There are three primary classifications.

The three additional classifications (fourth, fifth and sixth degree) are so severe they are almost always fatal. JHC’s Lawrence burn injury lawyers are knowledgeable regarding the costs and consequences associated with burns of varying degrees. We can help you determine the potential value of your personal injury claim upon consideration of the scope and extent of your burn injury.

Burn Injury Complications

Severe complications can be a consequence of a burn injury. Some of the long-term complications include extreme pain, damage to internal organs, changes in body chemistry, temperature sensitivity and tolerance problems, loss of feeling and sensation, loss of mobility, breathing problems, permanent scarring, physical disabilities, disfigurement, and psychological trauma.

Medical treatment for catastrophic burn injuries is long-term and requires multiple surgeries, skin grafting, medications, and therapies and intensive rehabilitation. In some severe instances, burn victims require life-long assistance with daily activities and are no longer able to live on their own. They can also lose the ability to be gainfully employed and experience significant changes to their quality of life.

All of this will be accounted for when you trust JHC’s Lawrence burn injury lawyers with your case. We leave no stone unturned in considering what losses may have resulted from your injury, and we aggressively pursue every dollar you need to address your expenses and hardships.

What should I do after a Lawrence burn injury accident?

Call 911 immediately or have someone nearby call for you. This is the quickest way to alert the police and fire department and to notify emergency medical personnel that prompt medical attention is needed. The fire department can deal with any fire that may be presenting a threat, and the police can investigate what happened and record their findings in a report. If you pursue legal action after the accident, these reports can be valuable in building your case.

Get medical treatment as soon as possible. If you sustained a burn injury, it is best to be cautious and be evaluated by a medical professional as soon as possible. This will help to ensure the burn injury does not worsen or become infected. Receiving prompt medical assistance can also help a legal case. When you visit a doctor soon after your accident, they will document your injuries in a medical report, which provides a direct link between the burn injuries you sustained and the accident.

Then, contact JHC’s personal injury attorneys to ensure your legal rights are protected.
