Sometimes burn injuries happen in high-profile industrial accidents, such as the 2013 fertilizer plant explosion in Texas that killed 15 people. More often, however, these injuries occur below the national radar — but with devastating consequences for the people who are burned and their families.
Negligence And Burn Injuries
In many cases, the cause of a fire or explosion that resulted in death or serious injuries is negligence or misconduct by a responsible party. Forms of negligence can include:
- Building or fire code violations
- Defective smoke alarms
- Poorly maintained electrical transformers
- Failure to attend promptly to downed power lines
- Health and safety violations in the workplace
These are only some of the hazards that put Connecticut residents at risk of burns, electrocution and other related accidents.
