Fire Injuries, Burn Injuries, and Electrocution Attorney in New Orleans
Any type of burn injury, fire injury or electrocution can be devastating and not all that uncommon. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that burn injuries injure, hurt, or kill someone around every 30 minutes. Even more devastating, recovery times for burn injuries and electrocution injuries are extensive, costly, and extremely painful. Most burn injuries occur in the home or another place of business. Usually these are an accident, but all too often it is due to the negligence of another person or company.
Unfortunately, burn injuries and electrocution injuries can be permanent. A victim may lose mobility, lose function of body parts, lose function of extremities, or need extensive reconstructive surgeries depending on the severity of the burns. While you or your loved one deals with the physical pain and permanent effects of burns, the mental and emotional effects may start to set in. You and your loved ones may start to experience depression, anxiety, hopelessness and despair as you try to cope with a life affected by these catastrophic injuries.
Fire accidents and burn accidents can result in first-degree burns, second-degree burns and third-degree burns, as well as injuries resulting from the inhalation of smoke and other toxins. Fire injuries and burn injuries can happen for a variety of reasons; some of the most common causes include: faulty electrical wiring; defective appliances; gas explosions; chemical leaks; improper installation of machinery; and installation of flammable materials in construction.
