Burn Injuries

Burn Injuries Complications

Burn injuries can have devastating effects on victims and their families, possibly requiring years of treatment and rehabilitation and many thousands of dollars in medical costs and lost wages. House fires, according to the National Fire Protection Association, are the number one cause of burn injuries and fatalities. However, there exists many other causes of burn injuries and deaths, including car accidents, hot water/steam, electrical burns, work accidents, etc. Aside from burn injuries themselves, these accidents often cause complications from smoke inhalation, toxic poisoning, and heat inhalation.

If you or a loved one has suffered burn injuries, you are well aware of the staggering medical bills, lost time at work, pain and suffering, and other life-changing events. The Boston personal injury lawyers at Bellotti Law Group, P.C. have helped countless victims and their families recover compensation for the injuries or wrongful death they have endured. When your burns are the result of another person's negligence, it is exceptionally difficult to accept. We hold all liable parties accountable. Contact us today at 617-225-2100.

Burn Injuries Often Require Extensive Medical Treatment

Many victims of serious burns are forced to endure numerous painful and costly skin grafting surgeries as a crucial part of their recovery and overall survival. Skin grafting is not only required for cosmetic reasons, but to replace injured skin that can no longer form a natural barrier for the body. These surgeries often leave behind permanent scars, both from the donor skin site and the implant site. Sometimes, based on the severity of the burn, the location of the burn, and the overall health of the victim, life-long treatment may be required for overall survival.

Another Party's Negligence Often Causes Burn Injuries And Deaths

Often times, another liable party is responsible for a victim's injuries or wrongful death. Burns are no exception. House fires are the leading cause of burn injuries. A fire in the home may be the result of faulty electrical work, a defective product such as a hairdryer, clothes dryer, water heater, space heater, etc., fireworks from another person's property, and many other causes. Additionally, burns can result from a car accident caused by another person's negligence, hot water/steam accidents, and work accidents. No matter the root cause, if there is a party whose carelessness and negligence resulted in your burn injuries or wrongful death, we will hold them and their insurance fully accountable for the damages.

Defective Products May Be To Blame

Unfortunately, many products are poorly designed and/or manufactured, resulting in accidents which may cause severe burns, including:

  • Thermal burns (from open flames or hot objects)
  • Scalds (from hot water/liquids)
  • Explosions (as a result of a car accident, defective product, construction site/work accident, etc.)
  • Electrical burns
  • Chemical burns

Burn victims and their families have uniquely difficult challenges and deserve to be compensated fully for what they have been forced to endure. The Boston personal injury attorneys at Bellotti Law Group, P.C. will not rest until they obtain full and fair compensation for you and your family.
