Burns are a serious personal injury that can be suffered in a wide range of accidents, but are most commonly a result of auto accidents and truck accidents. Because burn victims suffer injuries that are extremely painful and often take a long time to heal, they are usually awarded larger verdicts and settlements than any other type of personal injury case.
Our experienced burn injury lawyers at the Law Offices of Blake R. Maislin, LLC have obtained several multi-million dollar settlements for burn victims, including an $8 million settlement for a victim whose burns were caused by an explosion. No matter what type of negligence caused your burn injuries, we have the resources and experience you need to fight for the best possible verdict or settlement in your case.
Understanding Burn Injuries
According to the National Institutes of Health, more than 2 million people require treatment for burn injuries each year. Out of this number:
50,000 people require hospitalization
20,000 people have burns involving at least 25 percent of their body surface
3,000 to 4,000 will die from the initial burns
10,000 will die of burn-related infections
Burns are one of the most common workplace injuries, but they can happen to anyone at any time. Most burns are caused by things such as exposure to a heat source, electricity, or chemicals, all of which can result in long-term consequences such as:
