Burn Injuries

Burn injuries can vary between relatively minor or the most traumatic type of personal injury a person can suffer. Burns can cause disfigurement, scarring, muscle damage, respiratory failure, and significant psychological harm. Some causes of burn injuries include chemical burns (airbags or defective cosmetics), electric shock, severe motor vehicle collisions, scalding liquids, defective products, and fires.

Burn injury cases require special attention in that not only is the victim affected physically, but also psychologically. Matthew D.
