Burn Victims

Burn injuries are extremely traumatizing. They are one of the most painful, disabling injuries and they result in long-lasting disfigurement that often requires a series of expensive plastic and reconstructive surgeries. Many burn victims go through lengthy, painful treatments in the healing process, including frequent debridement of the burned areas, and skin harvesting and grafting from unharmed parts of the body. Perhaps the most mentally unsettling aspect of burns is that many of the 2.4 million yearly burn injuries could have been prevented.

Fires are started for all sorts of reasons that should be preventable. Propane or LP gas can leak, undetected, into a home or office building and explode, causing a fire. Furnaces and water heaters can malfunction due to improper maintenance or design. Defective electrical or heating products are released into the market and not recalled in time to prevent accidents. Sometimes campfires or bonfires are the cause of serious burns. Some products will either burn hotter and more rapidly than expected, or start on fire very easily. Surprisingly, some types of clothing are extremely flammable and will cause deep burns if even a small flame touches the fabric.

If you or a loved one was injured in a fire due to a gas leak or explosion, the negligence of another person, or a defective product, you are entitled to seek compensation. A Minnesota personal injury attorney can help you seek reimbursement for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Loss of wages
