Burns, Electrocutions and Explosions

Home » Burns, Electrocutions and Explosions

Severe burns can result from electrocutions, explosions, motor vehicle accidents, or product malfunctions. Regardless of how they occur, they are extremely painful. They can cause permanent scarring or even lifelong disfigurement. Recovering from a severe burn is typically a long, painful process filled with surgeries and skin grafts.  Not all burn damage can be repaired, even with reconstructive surgeries.  The psychological and emotional effects caused by burns can be far-reaching for the victim.

Burns can be caused by:

  • Motor vehicle accidents, including motorcycle and commercial truck accidents
  • Electrocutions
  • Home fires
  • Defective products, including heaters, grills, ovens, furnaces, fireplaces, woodstoves
  • Gas tank or propane tank explosions
  • Heavy machinery explosions
  • Chemical explosions
