Burn victims

According to the American Burn Association, a fire-related injury occurs every thirty minutes, many of which result in fatality.

Burn injuries are extremely traumatizing. Burns are one of the most painful, disabling injuries, often resulting in disfigurement requiring extensive, expensive reconstructive surgeries and skin grafting. Many burn victims endure lengthy, painful treatments in the healing process, including frequent debridement of the affected areas and skin harvesting and grafting from unharmed parts of the body.

The knowledge that many of the 2.4 million yearly burn injuries in the United States could have been prevented can be emotionally and mentally unsettling.

Fires start for many preventable reasons. Propane or LP gas can leak undetected into a home or office building and explode. Furnaces and water heaters can malfunction due to improper maintenance or design. Defective electrical or heating products are not recalled in time to prevent accidents. Some products will either burn hotter or more rapidly than expected and start on fire easily. Campfires or bonfires burn out of control and spread. Gas cans or other receptacles are not designed with simple safety mechanisms. Some clothing is extremely flammable, causing deep burns if even a small flame comes in contact with the fabric.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a fire due to a gas leak or explosion, a defective product, or the negligence of another person, you are entitled to compensation.
