Cincinnati Burn Injury Attorney
Catastrophic Injuries – Cases Involving Serious Burns
There are a number of circumstances that can lead to severe burns, including auto or truck accidents, explosions, fires, electrical accidents and others. Severe burns are some of the most difficult injuries to treat successfully. There is no current medical procedure that will restore burned skin to a healthy condition after serious scarring and disfigurement, although there have been advances with regard to plastic surgery as well as the ability to avoid serious infections.
Burn victims can suffer greatly, and the pain involved is extensive. The treatments are also extremely painful, and any attempt to restore the patient's skin and muscle tissue could require many surgeries, over several years. At The Moore Law Firm we represent burn victims who have suffered catastrophic injuries. Whether the burns are the result of a gas explosion, vehicle fire, or an electrical accident, contact us so we can help you seek full compensation.
Common Causes of Burn Injuries
Burn injuries can result from a variety of accidents, including car accidents,
trucking accidents and
motorcycle accidents. Additionally, burn injuries also commonly occur in
industrial settings, such as construction sites and factories. Burns may result not only from fire and explosions, but also from chemical exposure,
electrocution and radiation.
Burn Injury Prognosis
Victims of severe burn injuries suffer greatly. Just the trauma of being burned-the fear and intense pain-can cause psychological damage. The effects on the mind and emotions are made worse by the necessary courses of painful treatments, skin grafts, debridement and surgeries. Burn victims are at a great risk of infection and post-traumatic stress disorder. The victim may be heavily scarred and disfigured, and might have lost limbs, hearing or sight. Physical limitations as well as new emotional problems might prevent the injured person from ever working again. Burn victims can even become depressed and suicidal.
