Los Angeles Scald Injury Attorney
The opportunity to become scalded or burned from hot liquid is prevalent at many construction sites. Workers often are around hot liquids in the normal course of their duties. They could be accidently covered with hot spray or a spill of a hot liquid, or they could be hurt while using them as part of their job. Attorneys at the Los Angeles law firm Mann & Elias have represented many clients injured in scald/burn accidents and won maximum awards and settlements that helped scald/burn victims recover from those tragic events.
What Accidents Cause Scald/Burn Injuries?
Many construction sites and other places of employment have experienced worker injuries due to scald/burn accidents caused by spillage of hot liquids. Explosions can release hot liquids such as grease or boiling water into the air and workers can get hurt by this accidental spraying.
What Injuries are Likely to Occur from Scald/Burn Incidents?
First, second, third and fourth degree burns can occur during scald/burn incidents. First degree burns are relatively minor, while fourth degree burns could take a life. Many construction accidents that involve burns cause workers to get medical care and recovery could take several weeks or more. A serious scald/burn injury may cause long-term disability or even death. A person who is on an elevated platform when they are burned could fall and receive additional injuries to their bones, head, back or spine.
What Problems Do Scald/Burns Cause?
The major problem with scald/burns is pain and suffering. Other problems will also cause distress.
When skin is deeply burned, medical attention and a possible hospital stay may be required
A person may be disabled or never again be able to perform regular job duties
Time off work is usually a financial burden to most families
Death or loss of a limb or eyesight can also be devastating to the whole family
Paying bills while unemployed is difficult or impossible, and it could take a long struggle to obtain workers’ comp pay or an insurance settlement.
