Statistics vary depending on who you get them from, but approximately 2.5 million people sustain burn injuries each year according to the American Burn Association. It seems about half of those require medical attention and treatment by medical professionals across the U.S. When a person's tissue is damaged by heat, chemicals, or one of many other types of agents, it is called a burn. Most people know that burns are rated as 1st, 2nd or 3rd degree to determine severity, but burns are also categorized in severity by the percentage of the person’s body that has sustained damage. In addition to burns suffered from automobile accidents, building fires, scalding/hot liquid, industrial accidents, or gas leak explosions; burns are also sustained by the commonplace fireworks handling, turkey fryers, and cigarettes and may require the consultation of an experienced burn injury lawyer in Texas.

There is usually long term physical and psychological affects to be dealt with when a person sustains, 2nd or 3rd degree burns. It takes expert and focused care to deal with the injuries of seriously burned patients that often need reconstruction and rehabilitation. This care is likely to be at a special burn/trauma center when the burns are severe and life threatening or life changing. Sadly, statistics show that fire and burn injuries (including smoke poisoning) are the leading cause of accidental death for children 14 years and younger in the U.S. More specifically, scalds are the leading cause of accidental death for children from birth to four years old in the home. The most tragic thing is that these accidental deaths are preventable.

Of course returning to as normal a life as possible during and after the recovery process is your top goal after experiencing this kind of trauma. During this time, additional stress is added to an already stressful recovery period by the need to get your medical bills paid. It may seem difficult, but is nonetheless important to not suffer financially as a result of any lost wages, while also ensuring that your insurance company will pay for future treatment needed for your injury. It may be necessary for you to speak with an experienced lawyer who can go over your situation and discuss the options available to you. An attorney can also be helpful in working with the insurance companies and other parties involved in your case to make sure you get the medical treatment necessary and are not financially burdened by the expenses.
