Auto Burn Injuries & Compensation Options
Posted on behalf of Gordon & Partners on Feb 19, 2013 in Auto Accidents
A serious burn from an auto accident can often have long-term effects that may last a lifetime. Aside from the physical pain of the injury, many victims often experience psychological trauma along with mounting medical expenses and in many cases, lost wages and the ability to perform regular working duties.
With this in mind, it's important for burn injury victims to consider the long-lasting consequences of their injury in addition to their immediate needs.
Have you or someone that you know suffered a serious burn injury from an auto accident that was caused due to the negligence of another motorist?
If you or a loved one has suffered a burn injury in a Florida auto accident, you may be entitled to compensation for current and future medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and other damages related to the wreck.
At Gordon & Partners, we offer burn victims free consultations and you won’t owe us any fees or costs if we are unable to recover financial compensation for you.
Causes of Car Fires
Motor vehicle fires are one of the top causes of burn injuries every year across the country. When two vehicles collide, their fuel tanks can rupture and develop into a fuel-fed fire. When fuel tanks explode, parts of the vehicle can become dangerous projectiles and have the potential to trap passengers inside the vehicle. Fuel tank explosions can be both catastrophic and fatal.
Due to the highly flammable materials involved in car fires, like gas, oil, grease and other liquids, automobile fires can grow quickly. Some common causes of car fires include fluid leaks in exhaust systems or faulty wiring.
National Burn Injury Statistics
About 2.4 million burn injuries are reported across the country every year. Close to 10,000 of these injuries happen to minors and about 20,000 of these injuries result in burns that cover over 25 percent of the victim’s body.
Anywhere between 8,000 and 12,000 individuals fall victim to burn injury fatalities each year. Around 40 percent of all burn injury victims become permanently disfigured or disabled from their injuries.
The most fortunate Florida auto burn injury victims are able to recover after undergoing painful, extensive and costly medical treatment, which often lasts for many years.
