Dayton Burn Injury Attorney

Fotolia 121610 Subscription Monthly MBurn injuries are not only extremely painful, they can be permanently disfiguring and disabling, too. At the Comunale Law Office, our experienced Dayton burn injury lawyers serving Dayton and surrounding areas can competently represent you in recovering damages for harm you have suffered.

Common Causes of Burn Injuries

Burns are caused in a number of different ways, although thermal burns–burns caused by coming in contact with a hot surface or material, such as a stove or fire–are the most common. In addition to thermal burns, other common burn injury types include:

  • Electric burns (burns caused by electric currents);
  • Radiation burns (from radiation therapy or x-rays);
  • Ultraviolet burns (from sunlight or UV lamps/tanning beds); and
  • Chemical burns (from chemicals like hydrochloric acid, sulfuric acid, etc.).

Burns can occur on private property, in the workplace, at home, or at any other establishment, as well as in nature.

Degrees of Burn Injuries

Burn injury severity is characterized by degree. There are first, second, and third degree burns.

  • First-degree burns. First-degree burns are the least serious of burn injuries, with only the epidermis (the outer layer of skin) suffering damage. While these burns may be the least serious, they can be very painful.
  • Second-degree burns. These types of burns affect the dermis and the epidermis, and are therefore more serious than first-degree burn injuries. Second-degree burns are painful, may cause blistering, and often cause permanent scarring.
  • Third-degree burns. Third-degree burns are the most serious, and require immediate emergency care. These burns are deep enough to reach the layer of fat beneath the skin, often destroying nerves. For this reason, third-degree burns are sometimes less painful, even though they are much more serious.

Recovering Damages for a Burn Injury

If you have suffered a serious burn injury, perhaps the only way to recover financial compensation for your medical bills, loss of earning capacity, disability, and pain and suffering may be to file a personal injury claim. By filing a personal injury claim, you can hold the party who caused your burn injuries responsible if you can prove that your burn injuries would not have occurred but for an act of the defendant’s negligence.

At the Comunale Law Office, we work hard on your behalf to investigate the cause of your burns and build your case. We have worked with victims burned by defective products, workplace accidents, fires, car accidents, and more.
