Jacksonville Burn Injuries

A burn injury is one of the most debilitating things that can happen to you or a loved one. Burns can not only cause physical damage and psychological trauma, but they can also lead to costly medical bills. In 2016, a Loop pizza grill employee [suffered serious injuries](http://www.news4jax.com/news/loop-employee-badly-burned-in-kitchen-fire) and was flown to the Shands Burn Center at the University of Florida in Gainesville, the closest dedicated facility. In another frightening case, an employee at Golden Corral was [set on fire](http://www.firstcoastnews.com/news/crime/suspect-douses-woman-in-liquid-sets-her-on-fire-at-golden-corral-police-say/335143186) by someone she knew while working. These circumstances touch on the danger of burns and the debilitating effect they can have on your health, and your wallet.

The [majority of burns happen in the home](http://www.ameriburn.org/resources_factsheet.php), though, according to the American Burn Association. This might be due to something you did, but in many cases fires and subsequent burn injuries are the result of factors out of your control. Faulty equipment, like ionization smoke detectors — which often fail to detect slow smoldering fires — can lead to dangerous situations where you’re not alerted to a fire in your home. Some ionization smoke detector manufacturers have even had lawsuits filed against them. Other faulty tools, like fire suppression devices, are also possibly dangerous, and have faced product defect allegations. Another common place that burns occur is the workplace, specifically at restaurants and in industrial settings. Working at these locations exposes workers to grease fires, boiling liquids, and open flames, all of which can lead to painful burns if workers are not cautious or equipment malfunctions. No matter where you sustain a burn, it is important to determine who was at fault for your injury. If your employer, landlord, or another individual was negligent and caused your burns, you may be able to hold them responsible and recover compensation for your injuries. ## What Burns Can Do Burns can vary greatly in their severity, from superficial first degree burns to more potentially life-threatening second, third and fourth degree burns. 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 This list isn’t exhaustive, but you can see the devastation a burn injury can cause in addition to the financial and emotional burdens a burn victim is saddled with. ## Where and How Are Burns Treated? Burns in Jacksonville are generally treated at the Shands Burn Center at the University of Florida in Gainesville. Jacksonville has no dedicated facility, and many burn victims require airlifting to Gainesville for treatment, which can end up being very costly. ## Hire a Competent Jacksonville Burn Attorney At Morgan & Morgan, our knowledgeable attorneys can help you seek justice in situations such as being burned at the workplace, or injured in an accident involving faulty equipment provided by your landlord.

  • How to Determine Liability in a Burn Injury Accident?

    One of the most important elements of any civil claim is determining liability. One of the skilled litigators at Morgan & Morgan can review your case to deduce who is at fault. 

    In a burn injury case, many different parties may be accountable for the harm you’ve suffered. Our accomplished team will discover who’s responsible by answering the following questions: 

    • Which parties had a duty of care to the victim?
    • Did any parties breach this implied legal duty?
    • Did the breach of duty result in the accident?
    • What actual harm resulted from the breach? 

    You deserve strong representation when you’ve received burn injuries due to another party’s negligence or recklessness. With the help of a veteran Morgan and Morgan attorney, you can pursue compensation for medical bills, property damage, and physical harm.

    Don’t allow the party responsible for your burn injury to go unaccountable. Speak with a tort lawyer at Morgan & Morgan today. Contact us for a free, no-obligation case evaluation.
