Burn injuries

Los Angeles, California

Burn injuries are most commonly caused by fires, but exposure to chemicals, electrical shock, and other events can also easily lead to these catastrophic injuries. While the severity of a burn can vary greatly, many of these injuries require medical intervention and may result in permanent disfigurement or loss of function. In severe cases, a burn injury can necessitate amputation or even result in death.

If you or a loved one has sustained a burn injury in any type of accident, please call (310) 546-8146 today to schedule a free consultation with Los Angeles personal injury attorney Mickey Fine.

Burn Injury Statistics

The American Burn Association reports that every year:

  • 450,000 burn injuries require medical treatment
  • 3,500 burn injuries result in death
  • Fire is the leading cause of burn injuries, followed by scalding, contact, electrical, and chemical
  • 68 percent of burn injuries occur at home, often due to defective products

Of the 450,000 people who seek medical treatment for burns every year, 45,000 require hospitalization. In many of these cases, repeat surgeries and long-term rehabilitation will be required before a patient regains even a fraction of their previous abilities.

Both initial and long-term medical care for burns are expensive. These expenses compound with an inability to work, resulting in significant financial damages. In addition, the physical and emotional suffering that accompanies burn injuries can take a heavy toll on every aspect of your life. If you are a victim of burn injury, all of these damages must be considered when seeking proper compensation.
