Explosion / Burn Injuries

Pearson, Randall & Schumacher P.A. knows that burn injuries are one of the most painful types of injury a person can suffer. To fully represent a burn survivor’s interests it is critical to understand the cause and type of the burn. There are many causes for burns such as gas, electrical, chemical, flash, hot water and steam; each one causing a different type of injury.

The burn injury lawyers at Pearson, Randall & Schumacher P.A. understand that the recovery period from burn injuries can be long and require ongoing expenses. We also understand that burn injuries can be incredibly painful and often times can prevent or restrict a person’s ability to work or perform normal activities of daily living.

As part of the investigation of your burn injury or explosion claim we will review the state and local fire and safety codes, investigative reports from the fire department and other regulatory agencies such as OSHA, and research industry related data specific to the type of burn and facts of the case. We will also work with other experts and professionals to establish the cause of the burn or explosion and more importantly determine what could have been done to prevent the incident from occurring.

Burn injuries can range from less severe “first degree burns,” to the most severe burns characterized as “third degree burns.” First degree burns are characterized by the blistering and redness of the top layer of the skin, also known as dermis. Second degree burns involve the dermis plus the next layer of skin, the epidermis, and usually result in visible blisters and burnt skin. Third degree burns involve all the layers of the dermis and epidermis being burned away and may also include burning of the subdermal layer of fat.
