A burn injury can have severe consequences including physical and emotional scarring. A severe burn can cause major damage to the skin, which not only affects appearance, but body temperature regulation, hydration, and protection against germs. Sweat glands, hair follicles, and elasticity are destroyed by burns.

More than 450,000 burn injuries are treated in the United States each year. Some common causes of burns include:

  • Cooking accidents: Kitchen accidents involving open flames on stoves, faulty appliances, and pots of boiling hot liquids represent the most common cause of burns. Always keep a fire extinguisher handy. If there’s a grease fire, don’t put it out with water, and keep flammable materials away from flame sources.
  • Electrical hazards: Overloaded circuits, extension cords, and wiring can trigger sparks and fires. An electric shock can cause a severe burn as well. That’s why it’s extremely important to quickly address sparks, unusual smells, and faulty appliances and not plug too many devices into one outlet.
  • Car accidents: An automotive accident can lead to a fire, especially if a fuel tank is struck by an impact, has a manufacturing defect, or has been improperly placed. In car accidents, occupants can be trapped in a confined space, with nowhere to go when flames get inside.
  • Product defects: Defective electrical components or products with flammable materials can put unsuspecting individuals in danger. If a company knew or should have known about a hazard, our Los Angeles burn injury attorneys can hold them liable if there was a design defect, manufacturing flaw, or labeling issue (marketing defect).

Types of Burn Injuries

A burn injury, whether it occurs due to direct contact with a hot object, an open flame, scalding liquid, electricity, chemicals, or rapid ignition of a flammable gas or liquid, can be classified in these three categories:

  • First Degree: The injury is limited to the epidermis, or outer layer of skin. Sunburns are a type of first-degree burn, which is often quite painful.
  • Second Degree: A superficial second-degree burn affects the outer layer of the dermis; moist and pinkish, it turns red when pressed; a deep second degree burn is dry and whitish, and won’t turn red when pressed.
  • Third Degree: The burn has destroyed the epidermis and dermis; the skin may appear charred and leather-like while subcutaneous issues may be damaged. Fluid loss and nerve damage may occur as well.

Burn Injury Treatment

Prompt medical treatment is essential; a severe burn can lead to deadly infections. Treatment may involve removing dead tissue via debridement. Skin grafts may be taken from unburned skin and attached to the injured area. Scarring and mobility problems are possible, but ongoing physical therapy can improve long-term outcomes.

Burn Injury Side Effects

It is now possible to survive burns covering 90% of the body, while 20 years ago, burns covering 50% of the body were nearly always fatal. However, scarring, loss of function, and disfigurement are common side effects of burn injuries. A victim may also have:

  • Limited mobility
  • An inability to sweat
  • Nerve damage
  • Oversensitivity to heat/cold/sunlight
  • Injury-related amputations
  • Emotional suffering

In the past year, I

In the past year, I was involved in two personal injury accidents. Auto and Pedestrian. At first I went to different law firm and signed up. After couple weeks in, that law firm rushed me through the process , did nothing and took $7600 of my settlement money and want me to settled under six months. I didn’t follow through and found out Jacob Emrani law firm with more experiences. This firm helped me to settled with larger settlements. Jacob Emrani and his team support me every steps of the way. For those involved in personal injuries, please understand that you must have patience for best results and Jacob and his team is your go to firm. Small law firm can’t do what this team does. Average people without any knowledges of auto accident, insurance carriers, and/or medical experiences are too hastily assumed that everything happens with a snap of a finger or I want it now. Well, it doesn’t. Rome wasn’t built in a day and so as this process. Court case takes even longer. People with negative reviews is because they don’t understand the system and all they do is blames and complaint or fired the firm that working hard for them behind close doors. When you quit and go to another firm, all you do is waste more time, waste more of your settlement reward to another firm in fees and costs. ALl you have to do is be patience and Jacob team will takes care of you. These case managers handles couple of dozen of case everyday and all the time. These attorney work their butts off on the phone and in court fight for you to get each client the best settlement. One case are not with the same result to next case. So when people calls into the office all day long for status, demands for answer, or angry because not moving with the speed the person want does not mean case managers or attorneys ignoring you. Email them, fastest response time. They only moves as fast as insurance carriers, medicals providers, and hospitals. These insurance companies are not just going to cough up money to you just because you got hit. They need time to investigate, this process takes time, case managers only goes as fast as these people move, they fights against these adjusters for you to get the best settlement for your case. So, please be PATIENCE!!! and give them time to work on your case. DON”T QUIT. Don’t go to another firm just because you have no patience and all you do is throw your settlement money away to another attorney and your case literally start from scratch, more time waste. Jacob Emrani, his attorneys, case managers, and the all the staffs are a great team and with tremendous experiences. Put your trust in them and be patience. Final Results. $$$$$$$.
