Orlando Burn Injury Attorneys
Burns are often described as one of the most painful injuries someone can have. If you’ve ever burned your finger on the stove, or even while using a curling iron, you would probably agree—even the smallest burn is debilitatingly uncomfortable. Now imagine you have second- or third-degree burns over a majority of your body after a car accident. It’s life changing, to say the least. Unfortunately, one of the most common injuries after a crash are burns. But burns also occur because of faulty machinery, defective products and work-place hazards. If not treated properly, burns can leave permanent scars, lifelong pain, infections and, in the worst cases, burns can lead to death.
Burn injuries frequently occur as a result of a collision, accident, or because of faulty machinery and defective products. If you or a loved one have recently been injured as a result of a burn, turn to an Orlando personal injury lawyer. At The Maher Law Firm, we represent clients who have suffered burn injuries as a result of another person or party’s negligence or irresponsible actions. If you believe that another was at fault for the accident that led to your injuries, you may be entitled to compensation. We attempt to recover damages to cover our clients’ medical treatment and bills, lost wages, and emotional distress.
There are a number of different types of burns that can occur as a result of an accident, including:
- Radiation burns
- Thermal burns

Categorization of Serious Burns
In addition to the previously mentioned kinds of burns that can be suffered in an accident, burns may be categorized by how deep they have penetrated the victim’s skin. Burn injuries can range from first-degree burns, which only affect the outer layer, to fourth-degree burns that penetrate the tissue. Although most burn injuries can be treated in the emergency room or in a doctor’s office, serious cases can lead to serious consequences, including death.
Accidents that lead to burn injuries can be caused by any of the following:
