Fire-Related Accidents in San Francisco
Fires can be devastating, and in a matter of minutes, your life can be
turned upside down. Not only is structural damage evident in most cases,
but personal injury and severe burns can cause great pain and suffering.
We have experience with burn cases leading both to death and catastrophic injury.
Let our experience benefit you. At the Law Office of Scott Righthand, P.C.,
we have worked hard over more than 30 years to learn about the injuries
people have suffered, the causes of those injuries and what is necessary
to litigate and manage complex cases such as this.
Help for Burn Victims
One of the most common types of injuries related to fires is
burns. Even minor burns can be extremely painful, and many people may require
long-term healing and recovery expenses. Third degree burns can forever
change a life. They often require multiple surgeries and surgery revisions
over the years. They can affect the immune system because our skin is
our first layer of defense. They are often disfiguring requiring expensive
plastic surgery to repair damage. First, second, and third-degree burns
should all receive first-aid or medical attention, and many individuals
pay out-of-pocket for the initial expenses.
In addition to burns,
smoke inhalation is another very serious issue related to fire-related accidents. Smoke
inhalation is actually the number one cause of death for victims of fires.
Often, the hot smoke causes immediate suffocation, swelling of the air
tract, and carbon monoxide poisoning. Victims who survive inhaling large
amounts of smoke often have lengthy recoveries and require extensive care.
