Burn and Electrical Injuries

Exposure to electricity, heat or fire can cause extensive burns and injuries that can inflict long-term pain and disability. Burns can have a devastating impact, causing skin, nerve and muscle damage that can impact the function and aesthetics of a body. If you have been the victim of a chemical, fuel-fed or electrical burn accident caused by negligence, you may be eligible to seek compensation for your injuries.

Burns are complex injuries, especially when the burn goes deeper than the first or second layer of skin. Third and fourth-degree burns occur from chemical, electrical or extreme heat exposure, damaging nerves, muscle and even bone. These severe burns are complicated to treat and may require months and years of medical care. Fighting infection is difficult. Painful skin grafts and tissue restoration may be needed, and even with the best medical treatments, permanent scarring is inevitable.

Negligent Burn and Electrical Accidents

It is unfortunate that many burn accidents are preventable. Negligent actions can cause fires, explosions, chemical spills and unsafe electrical exposure that can harm others. Victims of negligent burn accidents face extensive medical treatments, disability and disfigurement, changing their lives forever. Some common negligent burn accident causes include:

  • Improper training at the workplace
  • No warnings of electrical or chemical dangers
  • Poorly designed electrical products
  • Unsafe wiring causing electrical fires
  • Vehicle or large truck accidents

    Rafiq A.

    My family and I met Attorney Dwayne Brown after the unfortunate accident involving my niece. Attorney Brown did an exceptional job representing my family. He was the consummate professional, and treated my family with the utmost dignity and respect. As a result of his representation, my family was able to achieve a substantial settlement in our case. Although we obviously did not get our loved back, we are prayerful that we met Attorney Brown. My family would highly recommend Attorney Brown to anyone in a similar situation.

    An excellent and professional lawyer. He took on a car accident case on my behalf, worked with me from across the country, and was just as vigorous in his pursuit of justice on day 912 as he was on day 1.

Attorney Brown resolved my case to my absolute satisfaction and did an excellent job. I highly recommend his services.
