Almost half a million people suffer burn injuries annually in the United States, many resulting in painful, debilitating conditions such as disfigurement, psychological trauma, long-term or temporary disabilities and scarring, and even death. While residential fires are the most common cause of burn injuries, these injuries can also result from car, motorcycle, boat or airplane crashes, as well as from contact with electronic devices or unexpected hot substances.
Sometimes, the accidents leading to burn injuries are the result of inadequate wiring and defective products, or in the case of vehicular accidents leading to fires, negligence on the part of the other driver. When faced with burn injuries due to the possible negligence of another person or party, victims may be able to sue those responsible and obtain proper financial compensation for their pain and suffering, which may include economic hardships such as high medical bills, lost wages, mental anguish, trauma and psychological pain.
