Fire & Burn Injuries
According to the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA), in 2008 (the latest available statistics) there were 3,650 deaths caused by fire in the United States. As well, nearly 17,000 were injured by fire.
There are many painful and long-term injuries that can stem from non-fatal fire injuries. Among these are burns, which may require multiple operations; scarring of the skin; and complications caused by smoke inhalation.
Death and injury due to fire are typically seen in automobile accidents, other vehicle accidents, building fires, explosions, defective product accidents, heating equipment accidents, and industrial accidents.
Fire & burn injuries typically cause medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other expenses to be incurred.
