South Carolina Car Accident Burn Injury Lawyers

Being involved in any type of South Carolina car accident can be a terrifying experience. However, the experience is especially traumatizing for those who have suffered burn injuries. Burn injuries are typically extremely painful and can take months to heal. Even after a burn victim goes through all the available medical treatments, there are often reminders left behind in the form of scars or other types of disfigurement.

At the Steinberg Law Firm, we represent clients who have suffered burn injuries as the result of a South Carolina car accident. Our dedicated team of injury advocates help clients recover fair compensation for what they have been through, and the impact that an accident will take on the rest of their life. Unlike other law firms that pick and choose only the cases with the highest potential payouts, we pride ourselves in helping as many people as we can get their life back on track after a serious accident.

Types of Burn Injuries

Burns are typically classified into one of three categories, depending on the severity of the burn:

  • First-Degree burn: The least serious category of burn, first-degree burns affect only the outer layer of the skin. These burns are characterized by a burn site that is painful, red and dry; however, there is no blistering of the skin.
  • Second-degree burn: If a burn affects both the top and middle layers of the skin, it is classified as a second-degree burn. Second-degree burns will often look swollen and are characterized by red, blistery skin.
  • Third-degree burn: The most serious type of burn, third-degree burns completely destroy the first two layers of the skin, the epidermis and the dermis. Third-degree burns can also affect the muscles, bones and tendons that are under the skin. Because the outer layer of the skin is totally destroyed, skin typically does not grow back after a third-degree burn.

South Carolina Car Accidents Resulting in Fires

Fires are rare in South Carolina car accidents, as they should be. The United States government has passed strict regulations regarding vehicle safety features, especially dealing with the fuel system. Fuel systems should be designed to prevent the excess spill of gasoline after an accident. This includes designing and placing the fuel tank and fuel lines in locations that reduce the chances of a post-accident fuel spill. Following a Charleston car accident that results in a fire, an in-depth investigation should be conducted into the cause of the fuel spill.

Of course, not all burn injuries are the result of a fire; some accident victims are burned as a result of coming into contact with a hot metal object, hot water or steam as it escapes from the vehicle’s radiator. Again, vehicles should be designed to avoid the chances of a burn accident, and a manufacturer’s failure to take the necessary precautions may result in the manufacturer’s liability. In this way, burn accident victim may be able to pursue a claim for compensation against both the motorist who caused the collision as well as the manufacturer of a vehicle that was not safely designed. Compensation in a South Carolina personal injury case involving burn injuries may include amounts for past and future medical expenses, lost wages, decreased earning capacity as well as for any pain, suffering and disfigurement.
