Understanding the Long-Term Effects of Electrical Burns
Burn injury is a leading cause of death in the United States. Each year, thousands of people die as a result of burn injuries. Of the individuals who do not, many require long-term hospitalization and rehabilitative care. Their lives may never be the same. When a person has been seriously burned, it can affect every aspect of their life: physical, mental, and emotional.
Affecting more than just the injured skin, electrical burns can damage muscles, bones, nerves, and blood vessels. Serious burns can also affect
the respiratory system, making it difficult for burn injury victims to breathe unassisted. Many electrical burn injury victims face multiple surgeries and a lifetime of challenges, including extreme sensitivity to the sun.
If you have been the victim of electrocution, your first priority should be getting the medical attention you need. Because the cost of hospitalization, surgery, and long-term medical care can quickly add up, it is also important to seek compensation from the person or party responsible.
With our help, you may be able to pursue compensation for:
- Past and future medical bills
- Lost wages and future loss of income
- Pain, suffering, and emotional anguish
- Any scarring and disfigurement
