What Causes Severe Burns?

A burn may be caused by chemicals, heat, radiation, fire, or electricity. Depending on its severity, it may only affect the surface layer of the skin or may penetrate all the way down into the muscle, nerves, and bone. A victim may suffer from scarring, may lose feeling and muscle control, or may even require amputation if the affected limb or extremity has sustained too much damage.

Our Raleigh burn injury attorneys have handled many cases involving:

  • Electrocutions, both on the job and away from work
  • Defective or missing smoke detectors
  • Operating room fires
  • Vehicle fires and fuel fed fires following a crash
  • Private and commercial plane accidents

After initial treatments, with survival often in doubt, victims may undergo a long sequence of hospitalizations, skin grafts, surgeries, and recoveries, which can take years. The psychological effects of the pain, social isolation, and disfigurement can be especially debilitating. For children seriously injured in fires or burned in other ways, the situation can be even worse – the sequence of surgeries can last as long as 20 years.

The burn injury attorneys at Edwards Kirby understand that recovering from serious burns is a process that will require extraordinary financial resources to cover the treatments, nursing care, rehabilitation and repeated surgeries. Our lawyers are here to advocate for victims and their families. We take on burn injury claims across North Carolina.
