What Burns Can do to You
Some of the worst effects and aftereffects of a severe burn include:
- Significant pain;
- Pressure and discomfort;
- Loss of feeling;
- Blistering, charring;
- Skin loss, permanent impairment; and
- Potential for amputation.
Where Burns are Treated
Mobile is home to one of Alabama’s three burn centers, the University of South Alabama Regional Medical Center, which features a burn ward. This means treatment is likely quick and forthcoming, especially for cases that need immediate attention.
Common Burn Locations
Burns can come about as a result of any of the following accidents:
- Apartment building fires;
- Workplace injuries;
- Truck accidents and tanker explosions;
- Motor vehicle accidents;
- Electrical cord fires;
- Defective products;
- Locked fire exits;
- Scalding water and pipes;
- Electrical accidents; and
- Recreational fires (hotel, restaurant, retail outlet, nightclub).
This list is by no means exhaustive. You might experience a burn when faced with any of these incidents, or a completely different one. The cause of your burn might remain unknown, like this Mobile tenant who had a fire break out at the home he was renting. An attorney can help wade through the situation and determine responsibility.
