What causes burn injuries?
While most people think of home fires as the likeliest culprit, many different kinds of accidents can cause a burn injury, including:
- Factory accidents
- Gas explosions – at work or at home
- Electrical fires caused by defective power lines
- Car accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Defective propane tanks – either at work or at home
- Defective home appliances
Kenneth Selander, Jr. of Selander O’Brien PLLC has represented injury victims in Washington for more than two decades. In our years of practice we know the suffering caused by serious burn injuries. Burn injury victims face unique challenges, including:
- Pain and suffering of much greater severity than other injuries.
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
- Inability to wear clothing made of ordinary fabric – burn victims may need to wear special fabric known as Jobst garments.
- Inability to regulate body temperature, causing victims to avoid exposure to any severe weather conditions.
- Painful skin contractions that require physical therapy and medication.
Adding insult to injury, many burn injuries are caused by simple negligence. Faulty products, dangerous working conditions or other legal violations are often to blame. Victims whose injuries are the result of the negligent or reckless behavior of another person or company need experienced legal assistance in order to recover damages. Not all lawyers know how to successfully represent burn injury victims – and often the insurance companies or other responsible parties do not understand the depth or degree of burn injuries and may reject claims for compensation.

In fact, Washington Law & Politics Magazine has named Kenneth Selander, Jr. a SuperLawyer. That honor is conferred on only the top 5% of attorneys in Washington.
