Burn Injuries

More than 486,000 people received treatment during 2015 for burn injuries. There were approximately 3,500 deaths from burns. 3,000 of those deaths were from residential fires. Burn centers around the country averaged 70,000 admissions in 2015. 85% of the fires that injure or kill children occur in the home. Scald and contact burns are the most common cause of burn-related injuries. Two-thirds of the deaths involving children occurred in homes that did not have a working smoke detector.

Burns can be classified into three categories: first, second and third degree. Burns range from superficial (first degree) to causing damage to the dermis, epidermis and fat tissue (third degree). Obviously, third-degree burns are the most dangerous and often lead to severe remedial measures including skin grafting.

Burns are the most painful injuries one can sustain. The residual pain could last well beyond the point the burns heal into scars, which will remind you of this traumatic event for the rest of your life.

These injuries cause physical and mental challenges in your life. These involve problems:

  • Sleeping
  • Mood
  • Quality of life
  • Healing

If you’ve been burned, you may be entitled to compensation. An experienced Las Vegas burn attorney can give you the information and direction you need to make the best possible recovery.
