    Burn injuries in Nevada can result in severe pain, disfigurement, and long-term disabilities for victims. Understanding burn injury laws and legal recourse available to victims is crucial for seeking compensation and holding responsible parties accountable for their negligence or wrongful conduct.

    Types of Burn Injuries

    Thermal Burns: Thermal burns occur due to exposure to heat sources such as flames, hot liquids, steam, or heated objects. These burns can range from mild to severe, depending on the duration and intensity of the exposure.

    Chemical Burns: Chemical burns result from contact with corrosive substances such as acids, alkalis, or solvents. These burns can cause tissue damage and may require immediate medical attention to prevent further injury.

    Electrical Burns: Electrical burns occur when the body comes into contact with an electrical current, causing tissue damage and potentially affecting internal organs. Electrical burns can be particularly dangerous due to the risk of cardiac arrest or other complications.

    Radiation Burns: Radiation burns result from exposure to ionizing radiation sources such as X-rays, ultraviolet light, or nuclear radiation. These burns can cause skin damage, radiation sickness, and an increased risk of cancer.

    Friction Burns: Friction burns occur when the skin rubs against a rough surface, causing abrasions or tearing of the skin. These burns are common in accidents such as road rash from motorcycle or bicycle accidents.
