Burn Injuries and Finding the Right Attorneys to Help

 

Do Business With A Marietta Burn Injury Lawyer

 

In Georgia, as well as the rest of the country, there are around 2.4 million burn injuries reported. A lot of these people end up suffering permanent scarring, and some people even die as a result of their injuries.

 

Negligence, fires, defective products, gas explosions, hot liquid scalds and laser treatments are just some of the things that can result in burn injuries. Those who have suffered a burn injury may need to stop working for a little bit or for good. Physical rehabilitation is also something many burn injury sufferers may have to do.

We are lawyers with many years of experience helping those who are in need of a personal injury lawyer. We know exactly what to do to handle victims' claims, regardless of how complex those claims are.

 

Workplace Burns

 

Those who work with or transport flammable materials are at high risk for burn injuries. Some workers may operate machinery and equipment that has not be well-maintained and this can lead to injuries. Employers must do all they can to ensure that their workers are working in a safe environment, and this includes maintaining their equipment. If you have suffered a burn injury in the workplace, you may be entitled to compensation and should contact an attorney as soon as possible.

 

Explosions

 

Gas explosions can lead to burn injuries, and even death. Many people have suffered from severe burn injuries as a result of being trapped inside of a piece of equipment or a structure when a gas explosions occurs. This can happen at their workplace, a construction site or even in the comfort of their own home. One of the most common causes of gas explosions is due to utility companies not maintaining their gas pipelines.

 

Young Kids And Scalding Injuries

 

Young kids make up a large portion of burn injury victims, and this is usually the result of coming in contact with scalding liquids. In Georgia, young children make up more than 50 percent of the scalding cases it has had throughout the years.

 

Entrapment

 

Burn injuries from entrapment is quite common. There have been a lot of cases in which a person has been trapped due to someone else's failure to have fire exits. Property owners must keep their workplace, nightclub, apartment building and restaurant as safe as possible, because if they do not maintain a safe environment, then they could be held liable.

 

Burn Injuries From Auto Accidents

 

Car accidents can lead to burn injuries. In matter of fact, a car fire can result from being involved in an accident and this can lead to injuries. A defect in the vehicle can also lead to an accident and burn injuries. A thorough investigation is one of the ways to figure out the source of the cause of the accident.

 

Liability

 

When it comes to who is liable in the case of burn injury, that depends on a few factors. Generally speaking, claims can be brought against numerous people. For example, a property owner, as well as those who work to maintain the property, may be liable if a fire breaks out at the property. The owner has to take care of their property and they also need to have accessible entrances in the event of an emergency. If a child attends a school or daycare, and they burn themselves, then the parties who were present may be held liable.
