Traumatic burns and scalds often occur as a result of:
Chemicals and corrosives
Burns and scalds are extremely painful injuries with long-term repercussions for the victim. Beyond the acute pain and scarring, serious burns and scalds can cause life-altering damage to the nerves, tendons, ligaments, and muscles. This can lead to serious psychological distress and reduced mobility for the victim.
In many cases, serious burn and scald victims are unable to return to work. This loss of wages can be devastating, especially when you consider that many burn victims will require amputation, serious physical rehabilitation, or plastic surgery during the course of their recovery. In severe cases, burn victims may be left unable to manage the everyday obligations that were taken on prior to the accident. Many victims are left with questions about their physical and financial futures:
How will I pay my mortgage?
Who will help me maintain my home?
How will I buy groceries?
Where do I turn for help?
