Residential Fires in Arizona
Burn accidents are often caused by benign household items and scenarios that are present in everyday life, such as:
- Chemical burns: Industrial chemicals, bleach, acid, cleaning supplies, chlorine
- Electrical burns: Faulty wiring, improperly handled appliances
- Flame burns: Motor vehicle accidents, structure fires, grills, gas stoves
- Steam/Scald burns: Cooking accidents, ironing accidents, industrial appliances
Some injuries are physically hidden; the victim knows that it’s there, but it is invisible to the rest of the world. Burn injuries, however, are quite different. The scars they usually leave on their victims are not only traumatic but extremely visible.
From facial burns that make it almost impossible to talk or smile to permanent scarring on your extremities, the damage caused by a burn injury is obvious to everyone.
One of the biggest factors that set burn injuries apart from many other forms of injury is the amount of undue pain and suffering they cause. Dissimilar to other injuries, the pain from a burn is directly proportional to the wound’s healing.
To make matters worse, pain arising from a significant burn injury might not go away entirely, even after months or years of recovery. No one can predict just how much suffering and pain a burn injury will bring. That is why having a practiced burn injury lawyer on your side plays an essential role in helping you get your life back to the way it was before your accident.
