Florida Burn Injury Attorneys

Burn injuries are very traumatic. Some burn injuries, depending on the severity, can take months, even years, to heal. Along with the physical and emotional pain and suffering, victims must endure long periods of hospitalization, numerous trips to the doctor, physical therapy, surgery, and counseling to cope with their new challenges. Oftentimes, victims of serious burn injuries cannot immediately return to work. Some may never return to work. This causes financial instability to the victim and their family.

The common types of burn injuries include:

  • Thermal Burns: These burns can be caused by contact with heat, such as fire, steam, scalding liquids, and hot metals.
  • Radiation Burns: These burns can be caused by contact with nuclear radiation and ultraviolet rays.
  • Chemical Burns: These burns can be caused by contact with chemicals, such as acids, alkalis, detergents, or solvents.
  • Electrical Burns: These burns are caused by an electric current passing through the body.

Our Florida burn injury attorneys can help you if your injury resulted from any of the following:

  • car accidents
  • truck accidents
  • motorcycle accidents
  • aviation accidents
  • construction accidents
  • workplace accidents
  • defective products

Burns can vary in severity. The different burn severities include:

  • First Degree Burn: These burns damage the outer layer of skin, known as the epidermis. Hospitalization is usually unnecessary unless a fever, dehydration, or uncontrollable pain develops. A sunburn is an example of a first degree burn.
  • Second Degree Burn: These burns affect the first (epidermis) and second (dermis) layers of skin. Blistering may occur. Burned areas may appear ivory or pearly white. With deep second degree burns, skin grafts may be recommended.
  • Third Degree Burn: These burns will destroy the first (epidermis) and second (dermis) layers of skin. The third layer of skin, the hypodermis, will also be affected. The burned area will be dry and appear dark brown or leathery. Hospitalization is necessary as removal of dead skin or skin grafting is imperative.
