Causes of a Burn Injury
Each year millions of people will suffer some type of a significant burn injury and hundreds more die due to their injuries. Burn injuries have very serious and long term consequences. They can leave a person’s appearance disfigured, affect their psychological well-being, and cost the injured tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills. Because of this, determining the cause of the burn injury is important so our Norfolk injury attorneys can see if negligence is to blame.
