Burn injuries often occur due to defective products or another’s negligence. In these cases, financial compensation may be entitled, covering everything from long-term medical or rehabilitation expenses, hospital bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and permanent disability.
Burn injuries, no matter how severe, are traumatic personal experiences. The physical, mental, and financial cost of treating a severe burn injury are astronomical. The most serious burns often require physical therapy, numerous doctors’ visits, and long term hospitalization. The victim also requires extensive counseling services in order to overcome mental trauma and social stigma resulting from disfigurement.
Burn injuries can occur from a wide range of sources, including fire, hot water, thermal appliances, fireworks, gasoline, and faulty products. According to FEMA, 40,000 children are injured by fire each year. Yet, only 60% of all homes have a working smoke detector. Of those who do have a smoke alarm, about 20% lack adequate, charged batteries.
