Burn Injury Attorney
According to the American Burn Association, millions of people in the United States are burned every year. In fact, more than 500,000 people receive medical treatment for burn injuries and there are approximately 4,000 fire and burn deaths each year. Burns are typically classified by severity: first-degree burns that damage only the outer layer of skin; second-degree burns that damage the outer layer of skin and layer underneath; and third-degree burns that damage or destroy the deepest layer of skin and the tissues underneath. Regardless of the degree, all burns can be extremely painful, and in some cases will require extended hospital stays, costly surgeries, and ongoing medical treatment. When you have sustained a burn injury due to the negligent or reckless of another party, you may have grounds for a personal injury lawsuit. These types of cases can be complicated, which is why it is imperative that you have a knowledgeable attorney from Rad Law Firm by your side.

Common Causes of Burn Injuries
Whatever the type of burn is and no matter its intensity, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Some of the most common causes of burns include the following:
- Heat burns
- Electrical burns
- Chemical burns
- Oil or gas explosions
- Cold burns
Burn injuries can occur from fires and explosions accidentally coming into contact with electrical wires, chemicals, or some other liquid. While most commonly associated with flames, burns can also happen as a result of coming into contact with hot liquids. Heat burns are the most common, but this is not to say the other types of burns are not just as serious and life-changing.
