When Medical Malpractice Results In Serious Injury Or Death From Burns

When most people think of burns, their minds immediately jump to injuries suffered in a fire or an explosion. However, there are a number of different medical procedures that can result in serious burn injuries if not performed properly. Additionally, the failure to properly treat burn injuries can make a severe injury much worse. When medical professionals fail to follow the accepted standard of care and a patient suffers harm as a result, it is important to hold them accountable for their negligent actions.

Medical Treatments That May Result In Burn Injuries

There are a number of different medical treatments that can lead to serious burn injuries, including:

  • Radiation treatments
  • Laser therapy
  • Burns resulting from the use of certain chemicals
  • Burns resulting from faulty or defective electrical equipment
  • Burns resulting from heat sources, such as flammable oxygen near cauterizing equipment

In addition to medical negligence that results in burn injuries, the failure to properly treat an existing burn injury can lead to further complications. For example, when skin grafts are improperly performed, serious harm can occur. The failure to treat infections related to a burn injury can also result in significant complications. Our lawyers will work hard to hold all medical providers accountable for serious injuries arising from malpractice or negligence.
