If you have been in a serious accident that has caused burn injuries, you have most likely been through a very traumatic experience. If the accident involved an explosion, the injuries go much deeper than those that are on the outside.
If you have been in a gas, propane, or vehicle explosion that resulted in serious burns or the death of a loved one, you may be entitled to compensation. At Farrish Johnson Law Office, you will work with a Mankato personal injury lawyer who is a great deal of knowledge that can benefit your case as you hold the party responsible for your injuries liable.
Protecting Your Legal Rights
It is your right to seek monetary damages from those who are responsible for your injuries or the death of a loved one. Those responsible may include building owners, landlords, managers, vehicle manufacturers, and many others. Your attorney will work diligently to establish who is responsible, why they are responsible, and every party involved will be named in your claim.
Here are some common sources of explosions that lead to burn injuries or death:
- Unsafe work environment
- Unsafe building practices
- Building code violations
- Manufacturing defects
- Defective products
- Unsafe flammable liquids
- Mishandling of flammable liquids and other substances
- Mixing chemicals that should not be mixed
An explosion can happen instantaneously, but the injuries that result can last for a lifetime. Victims of these types of accidents can also experience post traumatic stress disorder, which can have a negative impact on quality of life for the rest of their lives.
Compassionate & Aggressive Representation
Burns can have different levels of severity. A first degree burn is the least serious and usually heals rather quickly, but it still results in a great deal of pain. Even if a person only has first degree burns, the emotional trauma is there. These burns can be caused by chemical exposure, electric shock, and fire.
Second degree burns are about the same as a very severe sunburn that blisters. They can leave scarring and medical intervention is frequently required. There are instances when second degree burns require surgery.
Third degree burns are the most serious and they can be deadly as well. They involve all layers of the skin being burned and can involve the fat, bone, and nerves of the body. If you have suffered third degree burns, your Southern Minnesota personal injury lawyer will ensure that all of the future medical treatments and medical devices that you may need to deal with the scarring and the pain are included in your claim.
