Almost half a million people seek treatment for burn injuries every year, many of which are catastrophic. While the majority of burn injury victims do survive, at what cost? Many victims face life-changing disfigurement, physical limitations, brain damage and years of rehabilitation with multiple medical interventions needed.
People can suffer fire, burn or smoke inhalation injuries practically anywhere. The causes of these injuries are numerous, but among other things, can be the result of defective products, risky procedures, poorly vented facilities, faulty wiring, caustic chemicals, equipment failure, and, of course, human error. Whether the incident occurs at home, at work or on the highway, the devastating affects can be the same, significantly affecting a victim’s quality of life. It is especially tragic when the incident is the result of another party’s negligence.
