Burn Injury Statistics
According to the Journal of Burn Care and Rehabilitation, approximately 1 million individuals will sustain permanent or substantial disabilities from their burn injuries. Burn injuries are most often sustained through truck, car and other vehicle accidents, electrical, chemical, steam and liquid burns and home fires from various sources. Very often these injuries occurred as a result of defective products, either in design, manufacture or installation. If you or someone you know has been injured in such a traumatic fashion, seek the advice of a personal injury attorney. The legal team at Nguyen Theam Lawyers, LLP has successfully represented numerous burn victims in the Los Angeles area, throughout California and in other states.

Treatment of burns is one of the most expensive of the catastrophic injuries and often requires transfer to a specialized burn treatment center. According to the National Fire Protection Agency, state high-voltage electrical injuries account for approximately 4 percent of hospital admissions for burn injuries. Three percent are admitted for chemical burns. In 1992, a burn involving 30 percent of the total body area was estimated to cost as much as $200,000 in initial hospital and physician fees. This number is about four times higher today. Subsequent hospital admissions can be required which involve significant additional costs for follow-up reconstructive procedures and rehabilitation.
