Injuries from Fire and Explosion Accidents in California
Having to escape from a fire or explosion is one of the most terrifying experiences a person can have, and it is one in which you may not come out unscathed. Survivors can suffer numerous serious injuries in a fire, including smoke inhalation, broken bones (from trying to get out), and burns. Burns range in severity from first degree (superficial burns to the outer layer of skin) to third degree (serious burns to all layers of skin). Recovering from third degree burns is typically a long, hard process and may require numerous surgeries, including skin grafts. Rehabilitation is also typically required, especially if the burns are to your limbs.
It is important for an attorney to accurately quantify the full cost of an injury from a fire or explosion. Fire victims often require medical care for many years, during which time working may not be possible. If your accident was caused by the carelessness or recklessness of someone else, you are entitled to compensation for:
- Medical expenses (past, present & future);
- Rehabilitation costs;
- Lost wages;
- Permanent disability; or
- Pain and suffering.
