Burn Injury Statistics

Burns, both traumatic and painful, afflict millions of Americans annually.

According to the CDC, the grim statistics paint a concerning picture:

  • 1.1 million burn injuries require medical attention.
  • 50,000 of these injuries necessitate hospitalization.
  • 4,500 injuries prove fatal within the first week.
  • Almost 10,000 burn victims succumb to secondary infections.

Common Causes of Burn Injuries

While open flames are a frequent cause, burns can result from various agents like thermal, electrical, radiation, or chemical burns. Common accidents leading to catastrophic injuries and life-altering burns include motor vehicle accidents, hot surfaces, scalding liquids, electrical incidents, exposure to volatile chemicals, and more.

Burn Classifications

Burns are categorized into four degrees of severity:

First Degree Burns: Affecting the outer layer of skin, usually healing in a few weeks.

Second Degree Burns: Affect both outer and inner skin layers, causing blistering and scarring.

Third Degree Burns: Fully destroying all skin layers, potentially impacting bones, muscles, and ligaments.

Fourth Degree Burns: The most severe, affecting both skin and internal organs, muscles, or bones.

Medical Costs for Burn Injury Victims

Survivors often face prolonged hospitalization, multiple surgeries, skin grafts, and emotional distress. Medical expenses and lost wages associated with severe burn injuries can quickly become overwhelming. Compensation may be available to alleviate the financial burden for victims unable to return to work.

Responsible Parties and Legal Recourse

Various parties, including landlords, negligent drivers, workplaces, product manufacturers, designers, and entities involved in apartment or house fires, can be held responsible. Schaumburg burn injury attorneys can investigate the cause of the fire, gathering evidence for potential lawsuits or wrongful death claims.

Burn Injuries at Work

If burn injuries occur within the scope of employment, employers are responsible for lost wages and medical treatment. Filing an arbitration claim with the Illinois Workers Compensation Commission (IWCC) is necessary for recovery. Simultaneously, lawsuits against other responsible individuals can be pursued.

Compensation for Burn Injuries

Victims can recover from physical and emotional pain, loss of normal life, scarring, medical bills, and lost wages. When determining damages, jurors assess factors like pain and suffering, loss of a normal life, and scarring and disfigurement.

Legal Requirements for Recovery

Most burn injury cases require proving negligence, including establishing a duty of care, breach of duty, and causation. Negligence examples can range from a landlord’s failure to provide working smoke detectors to product liability cases due to defective designs.
