Murfreesboro, Tennessee Burn Injury LawyersMurfreesboro and Rutherford County Burn Injury Lawyers
Burn injuries are one of the most common accidental injuries in the United States with one occurring almost every 3 hours. Despite the sometimes catastrophic and disfiguring results of these injuries, burns do have a very high survival rate. Each year, roughly 3,275 people in the United States will die from burn injuries and almost 500,000 people will receive burn injuries significant enough for medical treatment. Of those 500,000 burn injuries, approximately 10% will require hospitalization and a smaller subset will require admission into a burn trauma center.
Burn injuries can occur in a number of ways:
- the use of space heaters;
- gas or propane explosions and other explosions;
- malfunctioning/defective smoke detectors or fire alarms;
- smoking accidents;
- chemical burns due to exposure to dangerous substances;
- faulty electrical appliances or other defective products;
- misuse or inadequate maintenance of fireplaces;
- handling or consuming hot liquids:
- car accidents in which gasoline or other liquids ignite.
Regardless of how the burns occurred, one this is for certain: serious burn injury survivors will face extreme physical, emotional, and financial challenges. Burns cause excruciating physical pain and suffering. On top of the physical pain, burn injury survivors often deal with immense emotional and psychological scarring. Treating these physical and emotional injuries leads to expensive medical bills, which in turn can increase the stress on the victim and their families.
