San Diego Lawyers for Burn Injuries
Serious burn injuries are extremely painful and can result in life-changing disabilities. Depending on the degree of the burns, these injuries may give rise to infections, require multiple surgeries and the resulting scarring and disfigurement is often permanent. In addition to prolonged medical care and recovery time, burn victims face potentially significant medical bills and lost wages. It is thus imperative to retain skilled legal representation in any case involving a burn injury.
While cars become safer with each passing year, fires still regularly occur as a result of auto accidents or vehicle defects. Fire resulting from injury-producing collisions are a major concern as occupants may be slow to react or even trapped inside a burning vehicle.
The increasing popularity of electric vehicles presents unique burn risks. While fires associated with Tesla batteries have been the subject of much press attention in recent years, all battery operated vehicles, even e-bikes, present a potential fire hazard. Defective chargers and user errors have caused homes to burn while vehicles are charging in garages. Obviously, serious injuries, or even deaths, can result from a fire in a home or automobile.
DEFECTIVE PRODUCT FIRES
Consumer products, from kitchen appliances to beauty aids to children’s toys, can cause burn injuries. Such products may present hidden dangers in the form of design flaws, manufacturing defects or inadequate warnings. The popularity of battery operated electronic devices has resulted in increased fire danger and a higher potential for burns. The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission website https://www.cpsc.gov/Safety-Education is an excellent resource for data on product fires and other aspects of consumer safety.
