What Are Some Common Burn Injuries To Avoid?

Medical professionals often categorize burns according to their cause. The most common types of burns are thermal burns. These involve exposure to a fire or heat source, including sunburns, scalding water, or flames.

Chemical burns can occur on the outside or even inside the body when a person is exposed to hazardous chemicals. Individuals exposed to chemicals may experience symptoms of shock and require immediate treatment due to the severity of the injury.

Electrical burns occur when the victim encounters electricity, either through lightning or live sources of electricity. Injuries occur not only to the skin but also to the muscles and other internal organs. The severity of electrical burns requires immediate treatment.

What Situations Cause Burn Injuries?

While first-degree burns can occur simply from standing under the hot sun for too long, burns resulting in serious injury are more common in situations where a dangerous environment gives rise to a risk of burns.

Workplace Accidents

Employees have a right to expect their workplaces are reasonably safe. However, many workplaces, especially in construction work areas, can be dangerous unless general contractors enact strict safety guidelines that employees follow at all times. Careless placement of extension cords can result in broken insulation, exposing the wires carrying dangerous electricity. Workaround power lines must be conducted according to safety regulations to avoid bringing equipment into contact with live current; workers must consider all safety regulations before beginning a project in order to improve the chances at preventing a workplace accident.

Premises Liability

When companies improperly store chemicals, such actions can result in chemical burns from spills and other exposures. Failure to take safety precautions can lead to fires that damage not only structures, but those inside as well. Negligent maintenance can create dangerous situations where fires can easily result in injury or death.

Who Is Liable For My Burn in Montana?

Property owners in Montana have a responsibility to ensure the premises are safe from fire hazards, including chemical, thermal, and electrical fires. General contractors have a duty to ensure their workplaces are free from fire hazards, potential sources of burns, and that employees have the necessary training and equipment to avoid injury. Manufacturers have a duty to make safe products. When property owners, general contractors, or manufacturers fail to ensure the safety of others, they may be liable for the injuries that result.

How to Recover Damages From a Burn Accident

The law entitles victims to collect compensation for medical expenses, including doctor bills, hospital expenses, and the cost of prescription medication. Those who suffer burn injuries may also seek compensation for lost wages due to time missed from work. Burn injuries are some of the most painful wounds you can experience. Montana law provides compensation for pain and suffering in these situations.
