Dealing with a Burn Injury
The American Burn Association estimates that 486,000 Americans annually suffer burn injuries ranging from first degree to third degree burns. Burn injuries have many causes, from hot water heaters that get too hot, to defective space heaters that cause house fires, to problems with car or motorcycle engines that cause minor or major vehicle fires. Workplace accidents often lead to burn injuries if there is defective wiring or a welding torch. Sometimes, airplanes or public transportation can catch fire and lead to burns. If you have suffered permanent injury, or a loved one has died, because of an individual’s negligence or a defective product, you should contact the Law Offices of Burg and Brock today. Founded by Cameron Yadidi Brock in 1996, the Law Offices of Burg and Brock offer some of the most experienced personal injury and wrongful death attorneys in the Los Angeles area.
The skin is considered the largest organ in the body. It has millions of nerve endings. When excessive damage is done to the skin, the epidermis can suffer. This could form a scar, or could cause chronic pain issues. If the skin suffers a large enough burn, the muscles and nerves underneath could suffer permanent damage and not function properly, limiting mobility and causing considerable pain. Medical treatment is incredibly expensive not to mention the likelihood of lost wages, so if you suffer a burn injury because of another’s negligence or recklessness, contact the personal injury lawyers in the Los Angeles-based Law Offices of Burg and Brock.
