Child Burn Injuries

Amber is heaven sent!! Amber and her team worked very hard on my case!! They checked on me while I had my weekly doctor visits. They were very detailed with my settlement. I didn’t have to second guess anything. I would recommend her to anybody who is in a car accident !! I’ve even referred my love ones who also needed her to represent them in an accident. She made my process as painless as possible. I wish I could give her 10 stars!!

Jeannette A., Client

I was referred to Amber by my daughter-in-law. I was involved in two rear end collisions in a three month period. She did an excellent job keeping me informed and explained everything to me, in a manner that I could understand. She followed through with me until I had my settlements.

Atlanta Child Burn Injury Attorney

Burns can lead to serious injuries, especially in children. In addition to being emotionally traumatizing for a young child, they can also result in permanent scarring, disfigurement, and other disabilities. If your child has suffered a burn injury, you may be facing months of medical treatment and rehabilitation, resulting in significant medical bills and other losses. Atlanta child burn injury lawyers can make sure that you get the compensation your child needs to protect their future.

Common Burn Injuries for Children

When discussing burn injuries, most people think of injuries caused by open flames. However, there are far more potential burn hazards than people realized, especially when there are children. As a result, your child may be exposed to potential burn hazards that you aren’t even aware of. Your child may have suffered a serious burn injury caused by one of the following: 

  • Thermals burns or contact burns caused by your child’s skin coming into contact with hot surfaces or substances. This can include hot kitchen appliances, hot machinery, and hot liquids. 
  • Electrical burns caused by coming into contact with an electrical current. This can be due to your child playing with an electrical cord or electrical outlet, or may be the result of using a defective product or toy.  
  • Chemical burns caused by touching or even ingesting toxic chemicals or other dangerous substances. This can include household cleaners, fertilizers, insecticides, herbicides, or other products that can be commonly found in daycare centers, schools, or other places where children are frequently present. 

If your child has suffered a burn injury, an Atlanta child burn injury attorney can assess your case and help you understand your options. 

Child Burn Injuries Can Have Life-Long Consequences

Thankfully, most burn injuries are first-degree burns and do not require any medical treatment or result in permanent damage. More serious burns, however, can result in the following: 

  • Second-degree burns can cause damage to the middle layer of the skin, resulting in serious infections. These may require hospitalization. 
  • Third-degree burns can cause extensive damage to all layers of the skin. The risk of infection is quite high and can lead to additional health complications. Many third-degree burns require skin grafts and some may require amputation. 
  • Fourth-degree burns are the most serious causing damage to not only the skin but also the muscles, tendons, and bones.

Third and fourth-degree burns often result in permanent scarring and disfigurement for your child. Depending on the extent of the burn, they may also result in mobility issues, resulting in permanent disabilities. In some cases, the burns are so severe that the injury can result in death. If your child has suffered a serious burn injury, Atlanta child burn injury lawyers can fight for your child’s future. 

Was Your Child’s Burn Injury Caused by Negligence? 

We do our best to protect our children from serious injuries. Unfortunately, schools, daycares, and other facilities aren’t always as vigilant as they should be when it comes to the safety of children. The following are some common examples of negligence that can easily result in a serious burn injury: 

  • Defective toys or other products
  • Failing to adequately supervise children
  • Failing to repair hazardous electrical equipment, cords, or outlets
  • Failing to prevent access to dangerous areas or equipment that can result in burn injuries

Proving negligence depends heavily on the facts surrounding your child’s injury. An experienced Atlanta child burn injury law firm will be able to identify the pertinent facts in your case in order to determine whether you have a claim.
