Georgia Burn and Personal Injury Lawyers
The skin is the body’s largest organ. It is responsible for a number of important functions: the skin protects the body’s internal organs from external conditions and dangerous diseases, regulates temperature and enables the sensation of touch. Serious burn injuries can impair and destroy these functions. In some injuries a serious burn can cause irreversible nerve damage, which in the worst cases can spread to locations apart from the initial burn.
The American Burn Association estimates that seven hundred thousand (700,000) burn injury victims visit the emergency room and twenty-three thousand (23,000) require hospitalization each year.
Burn injuries are one of the leading causes of accidental death in the United States. Approximately one and a quarter million (1,250,000) injuries from burns are reported each year. Of those, nearly four thousand (4,000) do not survive their injuries, and one hundred thousand (100,000) pass away due to infections resulting from the burns.
