Experienced Burn Injury Attorneys
Nearly half a million Americans suffer from severe burn injuries every year. According to the ABA National Burn Repository, a majority of these injuries take place in the home. However, burn injuries can happen any where. Everyday people suffer burn injuries in industrial accidents, electrical fires, explosions, and even car accidents.
Generally, burn injuries primarily impact the skin. Thus, severe burn injuries can impact your day to day life more than many other injuries. Not only does a burn injury make you more susceptible to infection, but it can also impact your ability to work, care for your family, and engage in other day-to-day activities. Few other injuries have such a wide ranging impact on every aspect of your life. Unfortunately, burn injuries can also take longer to heal than other injuries. This combination makes burn injuries truly devastating.
