Burned at Work? You Might Need an Oregon Burn Injury Attorney

A burn injury and its aftereffects are devastating injuries that may need for ongoing treatment for the rest of one’s life. Our experienced Oregon construction accident attorneys can assist you if your burn injury was caused by someone else’s negligence.

With what kinds of burn injuries can our Oregon burn injury attorneys at Aldrich Legal help with?

According to the source of the fire, burns can be classified into a wide variety of subtypes:

  • Chemical burns result from direct contact with powerful acids and bases like sulfuric acid and alkaloids.
  • Electrical burns if people come into contact with a live electrical current.
  • Accidental burns of the lungs by inhaling smoke or gases from a fire.
  • Sunburns caused by the sun’s ultraviolet rays and are called radiation (ultraviolet) burns when the skin is exposed to them for an extended period of time. Tanning beds also increase the risk of these kinds of burns.
  • Thermal/contact burns caused by the injuries sustained from direct touch with anything extremely hot.

Sadly, most burn injuries are perfectly preventable and only happen because someone else was careless, be it another person, a product maker, a property owner, or anybody else. Realizing that your injuries were preventable adds an extra layer of frustration to the healing process, but the good news is that you may be eligible to receive financial compensation to help with the costs associated with your recovery.
