What Is a Burn Injury and How Can Our Overland Park Burn Injury Lawyers Assist?

To put it simply, a burn is an injury that damages the skin or other organic tissues of the human body. Burns are some of the most medically complicated injuries in that they affect not just the skin, but also muscles, nerves, blood vessels and even bones. Effects of a severe burn can last years. According to the American Burn Association, burn accidents are a leading cause of unintentional deaths and injuries in the United States.

There are many incidents that can cause a burn injury, including:

Any of these types of burns may be the basis for a personal injury claim if they were caused by another person’s wrongful act or omission. If your burn injury was caused by someone else—a person or a company—JHC’s Overland Park burn injury attorneys can help you recover financial compensation to cover your losses and address future expenses.

Burns from Auto Accidents and Collisions

JHC’s Overland Park burn injury lawyers frequently see burn injuries that have resulted from car accidents and trucking accidents. They can cause minor injuries, such as mild bruising, or severe and life-threatening injuries, such as internal organ damage. When fuel or flammable fluids from a vehicle involved in a collision ignite, burn injuries can occur and are typically serious and painful. Automobiles and other vehicles can also cause burns when mechanical failures happen. This includes mishaps involving defective brakes, steering, tires, air bags, and fuel systems.

Burn Injury Degrees of Severity

Burns injuries come in differing degrees of severity that range from first-degree burns to sixth-degree burns. Each degree of burn has its own challenges and treatment regimens. The more severe the burn, the more it affects the skin and deeper tissues.

The Overland Park burn injury attorneys help victims pursue compensation for their severe burn injuries. We also help families seek redress through wrongful death claims when a burn injury results in the loss of a loved one.

JHC’s Burn Injury Lawyers Can Get You the Money You Need to Treat Burn Complications

Severe complications can be a consequence of a burn injury. Some of the long-term complications include prolonged and extreme pain, severe damage to internal organs, permanent scarring, disfigurement, emotional trauma, and loss of feeling and sensation.

Medical treatment for catastrophic burn injuries is long-term and requires multiple surgeries, skin grafting, medications, 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.

These significant consequences should be accounted for and addressed in your personal injury claim. JHC’s Overland Park burn injury lawyers know how to do that. Let us help you move forward in your life.

What legal remedies do I have if a loved one died from a burn injury?

A person can bring a wrongful death claim if someone dies as the result of the negligent actions of another person. Certain family members of the deceased, including the surviving spouse, children, and parents, can seek compensation for their losses. Some examples of losses that can be claimed include loss of future income, loss of companionship and love, loss of support, and funeral and burial expenses.

What are some common consequences of burn injuries?

While the severity of burn injuries vary, burn victims often experience complications as a result of their burn injury, including loss of physical abilities, loss of mobility, loss of limbs and appendages, scarring, disfigurement, recurrent infections, skin discoloration, dehydration, swelling caused by excess fluid, organ damage, heart rhythm disturbances, pneumonia, and low blood pressure.
