Burn injuries affect not only the skin, but can also involve injury to deeper tissue such as muscle, tendons, and even bone.

Elderly residents in nursing homes and assisted living facilities often receive burn injuries as a result of improper procedures during bathing. Facility staff are responsible for checking the temperature of the water to ensure that it is appropriate before bathing the resident. Failure to check the temperature of the water before bathing the resident can result in significant burn injuries. Besides causing considerable pain to the elderly resident, burns may compromise the resident’s overall health and lead to further infection.

If you or a loved one has been harmed as a result of burns, the nursing home or assisted living facility may be held accountable. Our attorneys have specific experience representing victims and families who have been harmed by burns. If you would like to discuss your case or want more information, please contact our offices for a confidential consultation.
