Burn Injury Attorney in Las Vegas
Seeking Financial Restitution for Your Injuries
Burn injuries are particularly devastating in nature due to the fact that they can result in:
- Permanent scarring

- Facial disfigurement
Not only can this impair a victim’s mobility for the rest of their life, but it can leave them with a great deal of mental anguish and emotional suffering. According to recent statistics, about 2.4 million burn injuries are reported in the U.S. every year. Of these accidents, approximately 65,000 burn victims are treated in hospitals each year, and about 20,000 patients experience significant damage to at least 25% of their body.

What are the most common causes of burn injuries?
Burn injuries are some of the most damaging types of injuries. Not only can they severely damage the outer layer of skin and cause disfigurement, but they can penetrate deep into the body and, in some cases, all the way to the bone. In such a case, secondary infections are common and may even be deadly. Permanent scarring can be physically and emotionally hard to live with. In addition, expensive treatments such as skin grafting may be needed to treat the affected skin.
Some of the most common causes of burn injuries include:
- Direct exposure to toxic chemicals
- Electrical fires/gas explosions
- Various types of industrial accidents
- Structural fires (i.e. apartment or home)
- Defective or flawed machinery
- Poorly repaired heating equipment
- Exposure to steam or heated water
If burn injuries are severe, the layers under the epidermis may be affected permanently. These types of catastrophic injuries can also cause scarring. The treatment for burn injuries can be extremely costly and may last a lifetime. No matter how your burn injury was caused, it may be in your best interests to contact a Las Vegas personal injury attorney from Mullins & Trenchak as soon as possible.
