Understanding Burn Injuries

A burn injury is any type of damage to the body caused by exposure to heat, electricity, chemicals, radiation, or flames. Common burn injuries include first, second, and third-degree burns. Third-degree burns, also known as full-thickness burns, are the most severe. These burns often cover more than 20% of the body and can lead to death.

Common causes of burn injuries include:

  • Faulty or poorly designed electrical wiring
  • Defective or improperly installed appliances
  • Defective or dangerous products
  • Defective heating systems
  • Explosions
  • Flammable or combustible chemicals
  • Accidental fires

Burn injuries can cause damage to the skin, fat, muscle, bones, and even internal organs. Third-degree burns can destroy all layers of the skin and even damage the underlying tissue and organs. These burns can also cause severe scarring, disfigurement, and life-threatening infections.

What Compensation Is Available in a Burn Injury Lawsuit?

The compensation you can recover in a burn injury lawsuit will depend on the severity of your injuries, how much of your body was affected, the extent of your scarring, disfigurement, and pain and suffering, and the amount of your economic and non-economic damages.

You may be entitled to an award of damages for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Loss of consortium
  • Physical and emotional pain and suffering
  • Scarring and disfigurement

In some cases, a burn injury victim may also be entitled to punitive damages. Punitive damages are awarded by a jury to punish the defendant for particularly egregious or reckless behavior. Punitive damages are not intended to compensate the burn injury victim but to punish the defendant.

The Role of an Experienced Burn Injury Attorney

Burn injuries can be extremely serious, even fatal. If you or a loved one was injured or disfigured in a burn injury accident, you may be entitled to significant compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. At KI Legal, we have the resources, knowledge, and experience to represent you in a burn injury lawsuit. Our Manhattan burn injury attorneys have what it takes to effectively advocate for your interests. We will fight to obtain the maximum compensation you are owed.
