The American Burn Association documented approximately 486,000 burn injuries that required medical attention in 2016.
Most of these were minor incidents that were treated in outpatient clinics, but more than 40,000 of those victims were hospitalized and 75% of those patients were admitted to a special burn center.
Burns can occur in different shapes, sizes and severity levels.
The amount of damage done and the relative area of the burn will determine the type of treatment that is necessary.
If you have been injured by a burn due to the negligence of another, it is important that you get medical attention quickly.
Burns and disfigurement
In addition to the initial pain and discomfort caused by burns, more severe cases may be accompanied by blistering, peeling of the skin, and / or permanent scarring.
These types of physical injuries can be combined with emotional stress as well.
The mental trauma of enduring a burn episode or dealing with the disfigurement of the body is not something to ignore or try to handle without help.
One deserves to receive fair compensation for the pain and physical and mental suffering that he has suffered.

Compensation of burn victims
One of the most difficult challenges in a burn case is determining the appropriate amount of compensation to adjudicate the victim.
This is where Lawyer Alejandro Padua excels.
Our years of experience in trials and negotiations have made us very aware of the several important factors for burn victims, such as continued and prolonged medical attention and emotional and mental anguish.
Many times victims of burn accidents will have to change their lifestyle permanently to adapt to their injuries.
Weather exposed to the sun may be limited, as well as discomfort in daily activities, such as showering or exercising.
Burns can be the result of negligence
One of the most common questions they ask us is about what kind of negligence acts we can ask for compensation.
Burns can be the result of many negligent, reckless or intentional things, such as:
- Car accidents
- Defective products
- Work injuries
- The lack of smoke detectors
- Failure to comply with the Fire Code
- Negligent or bad electrical wiring
