The Boerst Law Office Protects The Rights Of Burn Injury Victims Throughout Ohio.
Burn injuries are unlike any other type of injury. The nerve damage caused by the burns leads to excruciating pain. Managing the physical pain and difficulties is only the beginning of the rehab process. The scarring and trauma from the burns can cause long-term emotional and psychological damage. Even more traumatic; knowing that your burn injuries could have been prevented if not for the recklessness or carelessness of another.
The Ohio injury lawyers at The Boerst Law Office are trained to research the causes of burn injuries, and determine who may be liable. From our Ohio offices, we prepare your case for trial at every step, and negotiate aggressively when a settlement is preferable.
A report by U.S. News and World Report states that burns are the third leading cause of home fatalities. Burns can also happen from vehicle accidents, work, or even in recreational activities. Construction workers, technicians, electrical workers, and emergency care providers are susceptible to burns. Children are also vulnerable to being burned because they might be unaware of the danger.
The main types of burns include:
Burns can be caused by motor vehicle accidents, including trucking accidents, construction accidents, nursing home negligence, and other preventable causes. When your burn is the fault of someone else’s negligence – such as faulty wiring at a construction site – you deserve justice. The burn injury attorneys at The Boerst Law Office serve as advocates for families throughout Ohio. We can determine the cause of your injuries and what remedies may be available.
Burns are classified by severity and type. Most people have heard of first, second, or third degree burns when they hear a news report, but here is a specific breakdown of each type:
Burns can affect the respiratory system and damage muscles, bones, and blood vessels. These catastrophic injuries can affect the way you walk, your body temperature (causing fever or dehydration), how your joints function, and the balance of the fluids in the body.
Disfiguring scars are perhaps the most debilitating part of severe burns. Scars on visible body parts such as the face or arms may impact your psychological wellbeing. You might require professional counseling. Many burn victims relive the incident that caused the burn. This reliving is known as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
