Causes of Burns & Electrocution Accidents

People can get burned or electrocuted due to an accident that occurred on the job or at home. When negligence is a factor, the accident is usually related to faulty equipment or a failure to abide by safety regulations. It is common for burn injuries to stem from:

  • Malfunctioning equipment
  • Chemical spills
  • Motor vehicle fires
  • Workplace accidents
  • Building fires
  • Smoke inhalation
  • Scalding from hot liquids
  • Explosions
  • Defective electrical appliances

Compensation for Burns & Electrocutions

Fires, explosions, and electrocutions can happen very quickly. A lot of property damage and major injuries are inflicted in a short amount of time during these types of accidents. Injuries commonly associated with fires and electrocutions such as burns, infections, brain damage, and lung damage require extensive medical care. Surgery, medication, and medical devices are only a portion of the overall costs associated with being hurt due to someone else’s negligence. These injuries impede your ability to work and earn an income, prevent you from performing daily routine activities, and essentially impact every aspect of your life. Some of the expenses and damages that are sought in legal claims include:

  • Existing medical expenses
  • Costs for future medical treatment
  • Lost wages
  • Property damages
  • Pain and suffering
