What are my Options if I have been Burned?

burn scarBurns are some of the most painful injuries a person may suffer. Burns often require extensive medical procedures and long recovery times. Depending on the location of your burn on your body, the burn may permanently affect your ability to perform certain tasks or suffer major disabilities. On top of your potentially huge medical expenses, you will likely lose wages while you recover or may even never be able to work again. If you sustained your burns because of another person or company’s mistake, you deserve to be fully compensated for all of your financial losses and pain and suffering, and should contact a Philadelphia personal injury attorney as soon as possible for help.

Common burn accidents

Burns can happen in a wide variety of situations and accidents. Some examples of common burn accidents include:

  • Car or truck accidents
  • Workplace accidents
  • Chemical spills
  • Contact with hot liquids, such as boiling water or hot coffee
  • Scalding from contact with hot surfaces
  • Electrical burns from electrocutions
  • Fires caused by faulty products, wires, or stoves

Burns often require weeks or months of recovery, and they may require painful procedures such as skin grafts or even amputations. Severe burns may cause permanent disfigurement or loss of mobility or feeling in some parts of the body.
