A victim burned in a fire that was caused by someone else’s negligent or reckless action can result in the person sustaining serious, life-changing injuries. Fire accidents can happen at any time or place and they can be caused by any number of things including:
- Faulty electrical appliances
- Faulty heaters
- Faulty electrical wiring
- Lightning strikes
- Chemicals and gases
Of all the many types of personal injuries, burn injuries are among the most serious. While first degree burns typically heal quickly without complication, second and third degree burns are often accompanied by infections and deep tissue damage which can lead to a host of serious complications ranging from loss of skin tissue to amputation.
If you or a loved one has been burned in a fire, you should seek the assistance of a California burn injury attorney. It is never advisable to speak to an insurance representative as insurance companies are only interested in their own bottom line. While a settlement amount may be tempting to agree to, you may require long-term medical care and rehabilitation for years to come due to the injuries you’ve sustained. It is also possible that you cannot return to work for quite some time or perhaps not at all, putting your financial future in jeopardy.
