Workplace Burn Injury Attorney
Aggressive Legal Advocacy in California
Burns are extremely painful and can seriously hinder your ability to work, do daily activities, and simply enjoy life. Many workplaces, such as those in industrial or construction environments, expose workers to equipment or chemical materials that may put them directly at risk for burn injuries. The U.S. Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) reports that 5,000 workers sustain burn injuries at work every year, and 200 of these incidents have resulted in a tragic death.
If you were seriously burned while working, seek compensation by calling on our California burn injury lawyers. We have recovered millions in compensation for victims throughout the state.
Determining the Severity of Burn Injuries
Burns can be caused by exposure not only to flames, but also extreme cold, radiation, chemicals, sun, and even electrical currents. In fact, one of the largest contributors to workplace fires and burns were caused by electrical accidents, according to OSHA. Depending on the severity of the burn, an individual may be entitled to more compensation to ensure they receive proper care and support as they recover.
While first and second degree burns can be treated by covering the skin with ointments and keeping the areas bandaged, third and fourth degree burns can be devastating. Fourth degree burns, for example, are considered the most severe, extending past all of the layers of the skin and destroying the muscles. In extreme cases, these burns can reach to the bone and have deadly consequences for victims.
