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.
Types Of Medical Treatments That 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.
Holding Responsible Parties Accountable
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.
