If you have suffered a burn injury or have lost a loved one to a burn injury due to the negligent actions of another person, you do not have to bear the resulting damages alone. According to the American Burn Association, burn injuries are one of the leading causes of unintentional death and injury in the United States. Burn injuries can have a severe impact on a person’s physical and mental health.
Victims of burn injuries may require extensive medical care to repair the damage to the victim’s body caused by the burns. Damages related to burn injuries can include medical expenses, lifestyle adaptations, physical and occupational therapy, and pain and suffering.
You have to bear the physical and emotional pain from your burn injury, but you do not have to bear the damages alone. If your burn injury was the result of another person’s negligence or wrongful actions, you may be entitled to financial compensation.

Causes of Burn Injuries
Burns are tissue damage that can be caused by heat, fire, chemical or electrical contact, or radiation. Burns vary in severity from minor first-degree burns that can be treated with over-the-counter medicines to third-degree burns that are life-threatening and may result in death.
Complications from Burn Injuries
Burn injuries can result in severe long-term physical and psychological problems. Burns can take a long time to heal and may require prolonged medical treatment and surgeries to reverse some of the physical damage caused by the burns. A burn injury can result in:
Increased risk of muscle wasting
Increased risk of certain types of cancers
Decreased bone density
Severe burn injuries may impact your ability to do the same type of work you did before the injury to earn an income.
