Burn Injuries In Texas
Every year, fire departments across Texas respond to over 71,000 fires in our state. Unfortunately, this total represents one fire occurring every 7 minutes. To make matters even worse, over 160 individuals lose their lives in fire accidents each year while hundreds more are injured.
Fires are often devastating. They leave victims without homes and, even worse, they often cause excruciating pain and overwhelming suffering to those injured. Burn injuries can lead to permanent scarring and problems with muscle control and movement. When victims are burned in fires caused by negligent property owners, they may be able to obtain compensation by reaching out to a Texas burn injury attorney.
