Burn injuries are painful and leave long-lasting physical and psychological scars. Whether an unsafe product or some type of chemical caused your burn injury burn, you don’t deserve to suffer any longer.

By working with a trusted and skilled North Port burn injury lawyer at Boohoff Law, you give yourself the best chance of maximizing your recovery and making sure you don’t have to pay a dime out-of-pocket for injuries you did not cause. The negligent party should compensate you for your medical bills and your suffering.

Common Burn Injury Causes

Many factors cause burns, but the most common include:

  • Thermal – These burns are caused by contact with fire, steam, hot liquids, or other sources of extreme heat.
  • Light – These are caused by sunlight or ultraviolet light.
  • Chemical – Some common chemicals can cause burns including acid, alkali, or chemical explosions.
  • Radiation – This is caused by contact with nuclear radiation.

All of these types of burns can fall into three categories, according to how severe they are:

  • First Degree – Only the first layer of skin is damaged in first degree burns. Symptoms are redness or minor inflammation of the burn area. These burns cause minimal damage and usually heal within a week on their own.
  • Second Degree – These burns will show signs of blistering, be extremely red, and cause some pain. They often require some bandaging and may take several weeks to heal properly.
  • Third Degree – This is the worst type of burn. In fact, this type of burn can reach the bone. These types of burns will show up as black, charred, dry wounds that are extremely serious and can cause permanent damage to a person’s body.

More than one million people suffer burns requiring medical attention each year. If you suffered a serious burn, get treatment from a medical professional.

Types of Burn Injuries

While burn deaths among children have been on the decline, they still happen as a result of house fires. Other common burn injuries include:

  • Workplace injuries
  • Truck accidents
  • Gas tank explosions
  • Car accidents
  • Electrical fires
  • Defective products
  • Scalding liquids
  • Recreational fires

Burn injuries are tragic and are often preventable. One civilian fire death happens every two and a half hours. When you or a loved one has suffered a severe burn injury, your sole focus should be on your recovery and not worrying about how you will pay your medical bills. Working with the right North Port burn injury lawyer is the place to start.

Burn Injury Treatment

Treatment for your burn injury will vary greatly depending on the degree of your burn and what caused your burn injury. Make sure that you see a doctor as soon as possible after your burn injury. Waiting too long can lead to an infection or more severe injury. First degree burns can be treated at home but should never include the use of ice. Aloe vera and ointment are perfectly acceptable. If you have symptoms of a second or third degree burn, seeking immediate medical attention is the prudent decision. But it isn’t just physical injuries that need healing. Burn injuries often come with psychological injuries. Because there is a permanent deformation of the skin, some people have trouble accepting how they look after a burn and don’t want to be seen in public. This aspect of an injury often requires longer and more intense rehabilitation than the physical injury.

Don’t Settle Quickly

When you’re injured because of someone else’s negligence, you should not be forced to pay for what can sometimes be extremely large medical bills. When you work with a trusted burn injury lawyer, you give yourself a good chance of recovering damages for:

  • Lost wages;
  • Medical bills; and
  • Rehabilitation costs.

Unfortunately, many burn injury victims fall prey to unscrupulous insurance companies. The negligent party’s insurance company knows you’re suffering and knows you need quick money to pay your medical bills. They are likely to offer you a low-ball settlement and you’re often tempted to take it right away. But don’t accept any settlements until you’ve spoken with our North Port burn injury attorneys. The insurance company’s low-ball settlement offer likely won’t include enough compensation to cover your future medical expenses. This is important to consider because you will have bills beyond those that are currently sitting on your kitchen table. In fact, depending on how severe your burn injury is, you may have many medical procedures ahead. These are costly and time consuming. You should be properly compensated. When you work with us, we’ll help you create an accurate estimate of your future medical expenses. We calculate this based on the type of burn injury you suffered, its severity, and the medical prognosis for your recovery. This is an extremely important step to make sure that you maximize your recovery. We use this estimate in our negotiations with the insurance company, fighting to protect your rights and get you the compensation you deserve. While it’s true that most personal injury cases settle out of court, some insurance companies refuse to be reasonable. If this happens, we are fully prepared to take your case all the way to trial, if necessary. We know that going to court causes extra heartache and delay, but we will only recommend this when it’s right for you. We won’t settle your case unless it’s right for you.
