How Burns Happen in Olympia

We tend to think of fires as the cause of burns. However, there are many ways you might be burned or scalded.

Here are a few of the types of burns we’ve seen in our practice:

  • Chemical burns. Some work conditions expose employees to harmful substances. When safety conditions aren’t met, you can become injured.
  • Exhaust burns. It’s not uncommon for victims of car or motorcycle crashes to sustain burn injuries are coming in contact with engines.
  • Scaling injuries. Restaurant workers have been injured when handling scalding vats or water or oil.
  • Thermal burns. These happen when you come in direct contact with a hot surface or open flame.

If your injury was the direct result of someone else’s carelessness or wrongdoing, you may be eligible to receive compensation.

The Toll of a Burn Injury

Burns are often catastrophic injuries, altering the victim’s life in a myriad of ways.

For instance, burn victims might experience:

  • Intense pain and suffering
  • Extensive medical care including multiple surgeries and physical therapy
  • Permanent scarring or disfigurement
  • Loss of limb
  • Complications, such as infection
  • Loss of ability to perform favorite activities
  • Shifts in important relationships
  • Inability to work same career – or at all
  • Emotional distress – anxiety, depression, PTSD

If you’ve sustained a serious burn injury due to no fault of your own, you should consider filing a personal injury claim. While a settlement won’t undue all the pain you’ve suffered, it can help you recover financially as well as provide a sense of justice.
