St. Louis Burn Injury Lawyer

Burn injuries are among the most painful injury a person can sustain. Not only is the injury itself physically and emotionally painful, but the recovery process is lengthy and painful.  It is not uncommon for burn victims to undergo multiple surgeries and skin grafts during their recovery process, each of which is painful and leaves the burn victim prone to life-threatening infections and a lifetime of serious health care challenges.

Burn injuries at a nursing home are among the most preventable, yet they still happen.  When staff members place residents in scalding water they can cause serious and painful burns to the resident.  Sometimes, during cold weather staff members place residents too close to room heaters or space heaters.  Imagine the pain a resident who is unable to move herself feels as her skin burns from the heat of a space heater.

What to Do If a Family Member has Suffered a Burn in a Nursing Home

  1. Make sure your loved one gets immediate medical attention.  Burns are painful and they make the victim very susceptible to infection.
  2. Give your loved one emotional support.  Recovering from a serious burn injury is a long and painful road and the victim will need support during the recovery.
  3. If you believe the burn happened due to negligent conduct by the nursing home, talk with an attorney who can give you advice on your legal options.  Make sure this attorney has experience in handling cases against the nursing home industry.

How Can Burn Injuries Happen in Motor Vehicle Accidents?

Most car accidents do not result in big explosions like you see in the movies, but that doesn’t mean people don’t get burned in crashes.  When a crash occurs, gasoline can get spilled and ignite causing burns to people.  Burns can also happen if engine parts come into contact with people.  A common burn injury in motorcycle crashes is to the rider’s leg when it gets caught underneath the exhaust pipe of the motorcycle.

What do I do if My Family Member has Suffered a Burn in a Motor Vehicle Accident?

The advice here is the same…

  1. Make sure your loved one gets immediate medical attention.  Burns are painful and they make the victim very susceptible to infection.
  2. Give your loved one emotional support.  Recovering from a serious burn injury is a long and painful road and the victim will need support during the recovery.
  3. If you believe the burn happened due to negligent conduct by a different motorist, talk with an attorney who can give you advice on your legal options.
