The resulting permanent scars suffered from a burn injury can be both physical and psychological. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention notes that there are thousands of burn-related fatalities each year; the fifth most common cause of unintentional injury deaths in the United States. Fires can occur in a number of ways, from intentionally to accidental, such as barbecues, candles, faulty appliances or wiring, etc. On average, property loss due directly to fires cost insurance companies and homeowners approximately $16 billion dollars each year. This however, is only the beginning to the pain and suffering one might encounter when dealing with a severe fire and burn injury. Potentially liable persons include, but are not limited to, property owners, business operators/managers, building maintenance crews, construction companies, as well as companies producing defective products.
