Helping Burn Victims
Nearly 2.5 million people in the United States will sustain a burn injury this year; some folks suffering a lifetime of challenges and pain.
Fortunately, state-of-the-art burn centers continue to pioneer innovative therapies and surgery options for burn victims. One of the most critical steps a victim and their family can take after the accident is to immediately connect with communities, professional and personal, that are dedicated to the physical and psychological aftercare of burn victims.
The American Burn Association estimates that 32 percent of burn center admissions are due to scald injuries. Scald injuries occur when steam or hot liquid comes into contact with the skin.
There have been several notorious burn injury settlements related to scald injury. In 1994, McDonald's was sued after an elderly woman spilled her coffee at the drive-thru window and sustained third-degree burns of the groin, inner thighs and buttock due to a defective product. In 2006, Starbucks settled a burn injury claim for $310,000 after a woman was scalded by a cup of coffee that fell on her foot.
