North Dakota Burn Attorney

Automobile Accidents

A high impact collision has different effects on every vehicle. Although we would love to assume that every automobile has safety features that will protect us from injuries, many accidents in North Dakota result in a fire that increases the risk for a burn injury.

Fuel tanks leaking/exploding, leaking exhaust fluid, trash or waste ignites, faulty wiring, electrical malfunctions and cigarette lighter accidents are other causes of automobile related burn injuries.

Construction

Commercial truck drivers, contractors, construction workers and general laborers work with or transport flammable materials and are at risk for burn injury. If work is performed in poorly ventilated areas or equipment is not properly maintained, accidents can occur.

Peak season for roofing companies is in the summer for North Dakota. Roofing workers face risks from shingling and the hot tar. These however are only some of the construction burn cases that Attorney James Shaw with Carabin and Shaw can assist you with.

Scalding Injuries

Life threatening burn injuries can also result from hot liquids, and, in fact, hot liquids are one of the leading causes of burn injuries in children today. Often, they are caused by accidental and immediate contact with liquids that are household items. Though, such scalding injuries are not limited to children but happen to adults as well.

Routine water usage in homes, motels, hotels and apartments frequently causes scalding injuries. Sudden water temperature change due to malfunctioning water heaters, thermostats, pressure valves and other equipment causes these injuries though many people don’t think of these situations as potentially happening to them.

Explosions

Gas explosions where a victim is trapped inside a structure, building or piece of equipment can cause severe burn injuries. However, such an accident is not only possible at work or commercially via work sites, but it is also possible in your very own home.

Explosions causing burin injuries are commonly caused by exploding fuel tanks, live electrical wires, defective fuel lines, gas line explosions, live electrical wires, exploding cleaning products, improperly marked electrical wiring, and welding equipment.
