Chicago Fire Injuries and Accidents Attorney

Fire accidents can have devastating effects- physically, emotionally, and financially. On average, someone died from a fire every 169 minutes and someone was injured every 30 minutes in the United States in 2010. A fire can happen anywhere and can be caused by many different things, from electrical appliances and heaters to cigarettes and candles, to fireplaces and defective products. Regardless of how your fire accident occurred, if you suffered an Illinois burn injury as a result of the negligence or carelessness of another, you should get in touch with an Illinois fire injury attorney. You may be entitled to compensation for your injuries.

Most deaths that occur from fire accidents are due to smoke inhalation, not burns. However, fire survivors often suffer significant burn injuries and lung damage from smoke inhalation. There are three “degrees” of severity in burns:

  • Superficial Burns (1st Degree)- A burn on the top layer of skin. Usually heals in 5-7 days.
  • Partial-Thickness Burns (2nd Degree)- A burn on the dermis (2nd layer of skin). This is more serious than 1st degree and often results in significant scarring and might require skin grafting.
  • Full-Thickness Burns (3rd Degree)- The most severe burn, 3rd degree, destroys all three layers of skin, which results in the loss of skin, hair follicles, sweat glands, and the layer where new skin cells are formed.
