The American Burn Association estimates that there are 486,000 burn injuries that require treatment in the United States each year. Many of these incidents are due to the negligence of another party. If you or someone you love has suffered a burn injury, contact the experienced personal injury attorneys at Cueria Law Firm today. 

Our attorneys have successfully secured rightful compensation for burn victims across the state of Louisiana. They can review your case and help you determine if you have a case due to the negligence of another person or entity. The result of a severe burn can be long-lasting and result in permanent scarring or disfigurement. Burn treatment is often costly and takes a tremendous emotional toll on families. It is critical that you seek legal advice if you believe your burn injury is the result of negligence so you can recover the money you need to heal. 

Different Types of Burns 

There are many ways a person can sustain a burn injury. Burns commonly occur at home, at work, and in public locations. It is helpful to understand the kinds of burns that can happen so you can better protect yourself and your family from injury. 

Thermal: Thermal burns can occur when your skin comes into contact with something that is hot. Flames, steam, and hot objects are common causes of a thermal burn. 

Chemical: Chemical burns are the result of contact with a harsh element such as an acid, bleach, or ammonia. Many strong cleaning products can cause a chemical burn. 

Electrical: Electrical burns can happen when your body comes into contact with an electrical current like those found in uninsulated electrical cords. 

Friction: Friction burns are caused by the rubbing of your skin against a hard surface. “Road rash” is a type of friction burn.  

Radiation: Radiation burns are typically found in cancer patients who are receiving radiation treatment. 

Common Household Burns  

Burn injuries are traumatic and can cause a great deal of pain and turmoil, not only for the burn victims but their families as well. Even in the safety of your own home or the home of a trusted family member or friend, there are many potential burn dangers that you should be aware of. If you have children, it is even more important to be mindful of possible causes of severe burns to protect them and their delicate skin. 

The most common burn injuries in the home occur in the kitchen or bathroom, but there are other locations where burns commonly occur. 

Burns in the Kitchen

  • Scalding caused by hot cooking liquid or steam
  • Touching hot surfaces on the oven or stovetop
  • Grease fires 
  • Aerosols near an open flame when cleaning
  • Microwave fires 

Burns in the Bathroom

  • Scalding from hot bath water
  • Using electrical appliances such as hair dryers or curling irons near the bathtub or sink
  • Unattended candles
  • Aerosols near open flames  

Other Household Burns 

  • Using outdoor barbeque grills 
  • Keeping flammable liquids near open flames
  • Smoking in bed
  • Unattended space heaters 

What To Do If You Have Suffered a Burn Injury in Louisiana 

If you have suffered a burn injury in Louisiana, the first thing you must do is assess the severity of the burn in order to determine the most appropriate medical treatment. If the burn is mild, you may be able to successfully treat the burn at home with cool water and a topical ointment specifically for burns. If the burn injury is severe, you must seek medical attention immediately. Speedy and appropriate treatment for your severe burn can help you heal more quickly and prevent more severe injury than is necessary.
