Types of Burn Injuries
There are many different types of burn injuries with three different categories of burns.
The most common types of burn injuries include:
- Thermal Burns: Caused by contact with hot items, objects, or substances
- Chemical Burns: Caused by contact with abrasive chemicals, solvents, or substances
- Electrical Burns: Caused by contact with live electricity
- Radiation Burns: Caused by radiation from various sources, including some cancer treatments
Friction burns and cold burns (“road rash” and “frostbite,” respectively), while not technically burns in the medical sense, are also examples of common types of “burn” injuries.
Additionally, burns are categorized according to degree; first-degree burns are generally considered mild, second-degree burns are considered moderate to severe, and third-degree burns are severe.
No matter what type of burn injury you have suffered, if you believe your injuries were caused by negligence, you may have a case. A burn injury attorney in Santa Clarita can help represent you.
Why Hire a Burn Injury Lawyer?
Burn injury claims are often complex. Proving that a car fire, explosion, or electrical burn was the result of someone else’s negligence is rarely an easy task. Often, these cases involve defective parts or products, meaning victims must seek compensation from the designer, manufacturer, or distributor. In any case, proving liability requires exhaustive investigation and evidence. This can be incredibly difficult without the help of a knowledgeable and experienced attorney. Some other reasons to hire a burn injury lawyer include:
You Want to Get Back to Your Normal Life
One of the main reasons to work with a burn injuries attorney involves the process of getting back to your normal life. After all, no one wants to be reminded of their accident each and every day as case evidence is compiled to request compensation. Working with a burn injuries attorney alleviates some of the stress and allows you to focus on recovering from your traumatic experience, moving forward with your life.
Your Attorney Can Focus on Your Case and Compensation
A burn injuries attorney will put all of their focus on your case and compensation request while you put your attention on yourself and your recovery. Burn lawyers are sure to pay close attention to the details of your case, which would likely be difficult for you to do with your recovery and work. Furthermore, with the access they have to records and information, they can likely make a case that connects to other incidents, further solidifying your compensation request.
The Healing and Recovery Can Begin
After your case is solidified, you will finally be able to heal and recover from your accident without the stress of medical bills and court cases on your back. This is one of the main luxuries that a qualified burn attorney can provide you with. The healing and recovery process will also be able to happen quicker, as you will be able to focus your efforts on physical therapy and healing without the worry of having to get back to work or on your feet before you are ready.
