Common Burn Injuries and Causes

A burn can happen in a variety of situations and from a broad range of negligent behavior. Some of the major kinds of burns and circumstances include:

  • Car accidents
  • Chemical burns
  • Electrical burns 
  • Scalding 

Our skin is what protects our vital organs and everything in our bodies. It is our largest defense system. A severe burn can be fatal or have other serious repercussions. If your burn injury was the result of someone’s negligence, you may have a valid injury claim and be entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering.

Many burn incidents could have been prevented with proper safety protocols, adherence to regulations, safety equipment, and so forth. When unsafe behavior leads to a burn injury in the workplace you may have a claim for Worker’s Compensation. This may entitle you to compensation to cover medical expenses and lost wages as a result of your burn injury.

Burns can be a catastrophic injury that dramatically alters the course of someone’s life. These types of injuries have effects throughout several aspects of your life, including:

Types of Benefits You Might Be Eligible For

There are several benefits that you might qualify for or be entitled to with your negligence or workers’ compensation claims. They may include:

  • Medical benefits
    • You are entitled to coverage for medical bills related to your injury. This might include a visit to the emergency room, visits with your doctor, or scar revision specialists. 
  • Lost wages
    • If you lose any time from due to the injuries sustained, you may be entitled to lost wages. The amount of wage loss compensation you may be entitled to depend on the amount of time missed and your salary or hourly pay. 
  • Disability
    • There are several categories of disability including temporary total disability, temporary partial disability, and permanent disability.
      • Temporary total disability concerns the time period, if any, during which the doctor says that you are not released to do any work. Statutory benefits are set at a percentage of your average monthly earnings.
      • Temporary partial disability benefits cover any time in which the doctor says you are able to do some work, but during which you continue to be under a doctor’s care. Your benefit will be a percentage of the difference between your average monthly wage and the amount you are currently making.
      • Permanent disability is the stage at which your injury is not expected to improve, and you may then be eligible for permanent disability benefits, which is ordinarily a percentage of permanent disability. Note that your employer (or the insurance carrier) can challenge the existence and amount of the disability.
