Common Causes of a Burn Injury in New Haven

A burn injury is an injury to the skin or other body tissues that is caused by heat, cold, friction, chemicals, electricity, or radiation. According to The Center for Disease Control and Prevention, there are approximately 3,400 burn injury-related deaths each year in the United States, with a fire-related death occurring once every 169 minutes. A fire-related injury, on the other hand, occurs more frequently and is estimated to be about one every 30 minutes.

Most burn injuries are the result of:

  • House fires;
  • Explosions;
  • Exposed wire;
  • Electrified water;
  • Mishandled machinery;
  • Defective products; and
  • Exposure to dangerous chemicals

The two most common causes of burn injuries are fire or flames (46%) and scalding (32%). Most burn injuries take place in the home, while only 8% occur in the workplace, 5% take place on street and highway, 5% at recreational or sport activities, and 9% in other locations.

New Haven Burn Injury Complications

There is a long list of complications that can arise from a burn injury. The most common complications include:

  • Pneumonia;
  • Urinary tract infections;
  • Cellulitis;
  • Respiratory failure;
  • Wound infection;
  • Septicemia;
  • Renal failure;
  • Bacteremia; and
  • Other blood infections

It is also important to mention that burn injury victims often continue to experience both physical and psychological complications long after their burn injury has been treated and stabilized. Thus, ongoing burn therapy is often required to minimize these complications.

As a result, the medical care and treatment needed for severe burn injuries and their complications can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, and in cases requiring major oxygenation procedures, with burns to the face, mouth, or neck the costs can reach as much as $1 million.

This is why it is important to enlist the help of a skilled New Haven burn injury lawyer who can ensure that you recover compensation for your current medical bills, as well as, all of your future injury-related expenses.

Compensation for Burn Injuries in Connecticut

If your burn injury is the result of someone else’s negligence or recklessness, you are entitled to bring a claim against the at-fault party to seek compensation for your medical bills, pain and suffering, and more.

But, recovering compensation for burn injuries is a highly specialized and complex area of law. It is important to retain a law firm that has the necessary expertise and experience, and a history of proven results to handle your burn injury case in New Haven.

Our law firm has the resources to quickly dispatch burn injury investigators, engineers, and fire and explosion experts to the scene to locate documents and preserve important evidence. The destruction of evidence may make it impossible to pursue a claim for your burn injury, which is why it is so important to retain our law firm immediately.
