    What an Ottawa lawyer can tell you about burn accidents

    While burns can be caused by a number of different Ottawa accidents, Ontario personal injury cases most often involve burns incurred during a car accident.  If you have suffered a burn injury due to an Ottawa car accident you may be entitled to compensation.  Burn injuries can have a range of physical effects.  Some are minor and are able to heal completely, while more severe burns can cause permanent scarring.  Like many other kinds of personal injury, burns can result in time off from work and loss of wages, extensive medical treatment and even emotional damage.

     

    Burns incurred during a motor vehicle accident can have a few causes.  Faulty equipment, electrical malfunctions, and gasoline leaks can all cause burn injuries.  Whether the vehicle was hit by another car, ran into a tree or building, collided with a larger vehicle such as a train or bus, explosions can occur and often result in severe injury.  The kind of burn and its severity depends on the cause of the accident and how the burn occurred.

     

    There are a number of different kinds of burns as well as different degrees of severity.  This information is important in determining if compensation will be granted, and if so, how much.   Most burns from car accidents are thermal or chemical, but the circumstances of your accident and a thorough medical examination will be able to determine the nature of your burns.

    The severity of burns includes first, second and third degree.  First degree burns are more minor and are usually mostly on the surface of the skin.  Second degree burns are more serious and often result in blisters and other damage to the skin.  Third degree burns are the most severe and definitely require medical attention because they cause damage to deeper tissue.

     

    If you have been burned in an Ottawa car accident you may be entitled to legal compensation for your injuries.  In order to determine if you have a case, speak with an experienced personal injury lawyer such as those at Auger Hollingsworth.  They will be able to go through the details of your case and of your injuries and advise you about where to go from here.  Call 613 233-4529.
