A Burn injury can occur when a victim comes in close contact with a flame, corrosive chemicals, hot objects, scalding fluids, exposure to radiation and electrocution. More often than not, the injury inflicted is due to negligence of some other party. This party should therefore pay for the damages suffered by the victim.
Burn injuries can have dire consequences including partial or complete paralysis, disfigurement, damage to hearing, sight or even to the brain and spinal cord. In extreme cases, wrongful death may result from burn injuries. Medical expenses are not only severe, but they also extend for a long time. This is made worse by the fact that the victim may not be ever able to work at all, or may be rendered unfit for well-paying jobs. Thus, loss of income is also a painful outcome of burn injuries.
