Causes of Burn Injuries in Florida

According to the American Burn Association, exposure to fire and scald injuries from hot water or steam account for more than 75 percent of burn injuries.

While burn injuries from chemical exposure and electrocution are less common, these types can also be particularly severe. Nearly three quarters of burn injuries occur in the home and can be caused by faulty wiring or defective products such as heaters or other appliances.

Outside the home, burn injuries can frequently occur on the job, where improperly labeled chemicals or negligently guarded electrical lines can expose Orlando workers to unnecessary hazards.

While Florida workers do receive some protection under the Workers Compensation Law, the benefits available from an injured worker's employer may not be sufficient in cases of severe burn injuries.

In these cases, individuals who suffer chemical burns or electrocution on the job may be able to look to a third party other than their employer, such as a subcontractor, property owner, or equipment manufacturer, to recover fair compensation above what the Workers Compensation Law provides.

The Impact of Serious Burn Injuries

Minor to moderate burns can cause painful blisters, long-term to permanent scarring, and may leave the victim more at risk for infection during the healing process. More severe burns can cause permanent nerve damage, including loss of sensation and dexterity, may require extensive skin grafts, and may even necessitate amputation.

Burns to the hands in particular can leave the victim permanently disabled, while burns to the face, neck, arms, or legs can lead to a lifetime of embarrassment and disfigurement.
