Burn accidents result in costly medical treatment, time off work, and permanent scarring. These factors are very life altering for the burn accident victim, and often times legal compensation must be sought in order to help the burn accident victim regain normal life.
Tragically, many burn injuries could have been prevented. This includes fires, explosions, chemical burns, and electrical injuries. Negligence is typically a factor in burn injuries, whether on the part of the manufacturer or other people involved. Knowing an injury was needlessly sustained can be additionally traumatic for a burn accident sufferer and their family.
