What are the common causes of burn injuries?
You might think that all burn injuries are caused by fire, but that is not the case. Steam, electric shocks, chemicals, and hot liquids can also cause burns. Some of the most common causes of burn injuries include:
- Motor vehicle accidents in which a vehicle catches fire
- Premises accidents involving gas lines, building fires, water heater burns, etc.
- Defective products that catch fire, create electrical shocks or overheat liquids
- Chemical spills
If you have suffered a burn injury, you may be eligible for compensation. However, it is important to get an experienced personal injury attorney like Fernando D. Vargas to help you seek compensation for medical bills, loss of enjoyment of life, lost earning capacity, and other damages.
