Sarasota Burn Injuries

A burn injury could be one of the most harrowing challenges you have to face in life, causing lasting physical and financial suffering. Even worse, often the injury occurs through no fault of your own. Our Sarasota burn injury attorneys recognize the physical and psychological damage caused by burns, and the difficulty that comes with treating them.

A significant burn can lead to years of healing, even with our continually improving technology. The closest dedicated burn center to Sarasota is Tampa General Hospital, an hour’s drive away. By helicopter, the journey could take a scant 15-20 minutes, and add a heavy chunk of change to your medical bill, for an injury that may not have even been your fault.

If you’ve been injured by a burn, our Morgan & Morgan attorneys may be able to help you seek compensation for the losses you've received due to another's negligence. For more information, complete our free case review form.

Common Burn Locations and Symptoms

Burns can happen as a result of any of these types of fires or 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).

But most burns happen in the home, according to the American Burn Association. This might be because of your own actions, but often other factors come into play. Faulty equipment, like ionization smoke detectors — which often fail to detect slow smoldering fires — can lead to dangerous situations when you might not know a fire is in your home. Some ionization smoke detector manufacturers have had lawsuits filed against them as a result.

Other faulty tools like fire suppression devices are also potentially dangerous and have faced product defect allegations. Another common burn location is the workplace, most notably in a restaurant or industrial setting. This can mean grease fires or boiling liquids, plus open flames, all of which can contribute to a dangerous environment and painful burns. Your employer, landlord, or other individual or company may be responsible depending on where you received your burns.
