Although injuries caused by contact with fire may be the first type of burn to come to one’s mind, there are numerous other potential sources of burn risk. Depending upon the nature and severity of the burns that an individual sustains, possible outcomes may include intense pain, an extended series of medical procedures, disfiguring scars, and the loss of sensation.
The Delaware injury attorneys of Morris James Personal Injury Group can help you or your loved one to pursue the financial compensation that you need to cope with the difficult and painful aftermath of an accident or assault that caused you to suffer burns. A civil lawsuit may be the best means available for you to hold a negligent person or company accountable for the harm that you have endured. Contact us at 302-368-4200.
Different Kinds of Burns
The following are some of the kinds and sources of burn injuries that one might suffer:
- Chemical burns
- Electrical burns
- Radiation burns (including those due to sun exposure)
- Contact burns
- Flame burns
Exercising appropriate caution and employing reasonable safety measures can significantly reduce the likelihood that a person will suffer burn injuries. Accordingly, jobs that require a person to engage in tasks or conduct work in an environment where the threat of burns is an ongoing concern often have additional training on the subject.
But nothing can adequately account for the possibility of a defectively designed or built product that causes burn injuries or to predict the negligent or reckless behaviors of another party. If you have been harmed by another person or company’s careless actions, our Delaware burn injury attorneys are ready to fight for you.
