Fires in structures caused $9.7 billion in property damage. This level of property damage roughly translates a fire occurring every 65 seconds.

Determining the Cause of a Burn Injury
Besides residential fires, many other causes account for burn injuries. The severity and seriousness of the burn injury depends on how deep the burn is and how large the affected burn area is.
Take a look at other common causes of serious burn injuries:
- Scalding/ Hot Water
- Car Accidents
- Electrical Accidents
- Industrial Accidents
- Gas Explosions
Other common fire-related injuries that may warrant compensation include heat inhalation damage, toxin poisoning damage from systemic toxins, and smoke inhalation damage. Regardless of the type of burn, the damage can be more than just skin-deep. It may also inhibit that person’s quality of life.
Some effects of severe burns can include the following:
- Loss of physical mobility or certain abilities
- Loss of limbs
- Muscle or tissue damage
- Emotional trauma
- Loss of life
Burns are serious and can require years of treatment and therapy. If your burn was due to another’s neglect, don’t hesitate to get help from an experienced Illinois personal injury attorney who can fight on your behalf.
